Fashion has always been a very big part of the hip hop and it is only getting bigger. Today we are witnessing a number of rappers who treat style as an important part of their career and lifestyle. Not only are they wearing the latest collections, they are also being invited into the fashion world.
When hip-hop began, samples were all that DJs and producers had to construct instrumental tracks with. They'd dig through crates of vinyl trying to find isolated drum breaks, melodies or vocals that they could repurpose for use in hip-hop music.
Kanye West has been juggling a lot as of late. He’s been raising his fashion-forward and absolutely adorable daughter, tearing down numerous Fashion Week shows, designing his capsule collection for adidas and putting the finishing touches on his as-of-yet untitled seventh solo album.
With the "Hunger Games: Mockingjay Pt. 1" soundtrack dropping next week on November 17th, the label decided to come through tonight and drop off another track from the project, with Kanye West reworking Lorde's "Flicker."
Yesterday, an image of a purported tracklist for Kanye West's next album began circulating, and like any sane group of people who think they've got a new, legit Yeezy tracklist on their hands, the internet promptly freaked out.
