Playlist: Yandhi Preparation

The rise of Kanye West marked the death of gangsta rap and the birth of the modern age of hip-hop. His albums have defined the sound of the genre of hip-hop from the industrial metal found in Yeezus to the maximalism euphony found in My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. Kanye’s ninth album marks the end of this era. While the New Kanye is a little bit odd with his MAGA hat and Perrier costume, his constantly changing sound and aesthetic still shapes popular culture.

In preparation of ‘YANDHI’, the ninth studio album by Kanye West, we at Fjord have assembled some of Ye’s greatest hits across his entire discography. We’ve selected 3 to 4 significant songs from each of his albums to summarize all of Kanye’s musical specialties. From The ‘College Dropout’ to ‘KIDS SEE GHOSTS’, Ye has constantly developed as a musician and an icon of culture. So, in celebration and anticipation, we present to you our “Yandhi Prep” Spotify playlist.
