All Mixed Up, Nice and Yeezy 

Like him or loathe him, Kanye West knows how to create news around himself. He’s the father of center-of-the-“celebrity”-media-verse Kim Kardsahian’s child and well known for speaking up when maybe he shouldn't. And, from time to time, he’s also known as a musician. Yeezus, his sixth studio-recorded album, was released on Tuesday, June 18th to critical acclaim. And once again, West is using sampled tracks as the foundation of his aural master-pastiche. What tracks you ask? GianniLee has a downloadable mix “tape” of ‘em, right here.
