We Selected Our Favourite Kanye West Tracks from Each Album

With his upcoming listening experience in Egypt on the horizon, we decided to revisit Kanye West's standout tracks across his discography, spanning from his debut, The College Dropout, all the way to his latest joint effort with Ty Dolla $ign, "Vultures."

Kanye West's undeniable impact on hip-hop and music in general is a testament to his artistry. He silenced doubters right out of the gate with his debut single, "Through The Wire," rapping with his jaw wired shut after a life-threatening accident. Since then, Kanye has consistently evolved and pushed boundaries throughout his career.

Early on, soul sample chops became his signature sound on albums like The College Dropout and Late Registration. With Graduation, he introduced futuristic production techniques that shattered expectations.  His pioneering use of auto-tune on 808s & Heartbreak revolutionized hip-hop, taking it to entirely new creative frontiers. With the release of his masterpiece, My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy, Kanye solidified his position as the biggest name in hip-hop. He assembled all-star lineups for individual tracks and embraced a grand, operatic production style. Yeezus marked a shift towards his most experimental work yet, featuring industrial, minimalist, and heavy sounds that further challenged genre limitations.

We could spend all day dissecting Kanye's influence on music, but for now, we'll present our picks for the top tracks from each album. Use this list as a jumping-off point to delve deeper into his music and prepare yourself for a truly unprecedented experience at the Saqqara Pyramid on April 20th.
