Kanye's Crates - Mixed by Pipomixes

He may not be Rakim on the mic or Pete Rock on the SP, but there is no denying the impact that Kanye West has had on the hip hop game. At the very least, Kanye has managed to resurrect the artform of sample-based music to the airwaves. Maybe he's the only artist in the game that still feels diggin in the crates is a worthwhile endeavor, or maybe Kanye is the only person that can actually afford to clear the samples. Whatever the reason, it's a wonderful thing that hip hop's brightest star is a fan of diggin in the crates. With all that said, nobody better deserves a mix dedicated to shining a light on the gems in his crates. Enjoy the mix...

All the comments make me hungry to hear it, but it won't download for some reason. A random link downloads instead of the mix.
