Now, this is dope!

In celebration of the launch of the YEEZY 450 “Utility Black,” Atmos has enlisted Statik Selektah to create an hour-long mix called YEEZY DUZ IT: The Sole of Kanye West to help honor and celebrate the musical genius of Donda’s beloved son.

“I’m excited to mix some classics together with rare versions and unreleased joints to celebrate the new YEEZY drop,” Statik says. “The genius of Ye will be put on full display here and it’s an honor, being a fan since the beginning to working with him in Hawaii on My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy. There will be special moments on this tape. It also brings me back to my mixtape roots when I would do similar style mixes for Nas, John Legend, Akon, and many more.”

On top of the classics and tracks like “Everything I Am” with DJ Premier and “The Joy” with Jay-Z, the mix also features special blends with the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Conway the Machine, Freddie Gibbs, Raekwon, Rick Ross, and more appearing on “Devil in a New Dress,” “Father Stretch My Hands,” and “No More Parties in LA.”
