Ten years ago today saw the release Kanye West‘s debut album College Dropout and flourished his career to becoming one of the most prominent hip-hop artists of our generation. Honoring its tenth anniversary, the HYPETRAK editorial team sat down together and selected our favorite songs from the albums and coupled them with some key samples as well as music from its featured guests.
HYPETRAK Mix: Street Etiquette – Audio Visual 003
Over the past several years, Bronx natives Joshua Kissi and Travis Gumbs have become authoritative figures in the world of men’s fashion, culture and art.

In their stride toward finding the artistic meeting point between style and music, Josh has been curating a series of Audio Visual mixes, the third of which we are proud to premiere today.

Homepage Playlist: February 14
Sometimes you don’t have time to catch up with what Drake said to who or what Nicki said back – sometimes you want a break from all the music news and instead just want a flow of raw tunes, filled with a dose of hip-hop, electronic, chillwave and more all bundled up into one little personalised packet. Is that too much to ask? Not at all. HYPETRAK’s Homepage Playlist is updated on a bi-weekly basis with tunes selected by our HYPETRAK editors, and includes a balance between trending beats as well as the underground and upcoming.
