Clinton Sparks' 30 Favorite Mixtapes

Kanye West x The Heavy Hitters, Get Well Soon (2003)

Clinton Sparks: “This was an official mixtape from Kanye and the Heavy Hitters, released right after Kanye was in that car accident. The back cover was the picture of Kanye from his hospital bed looking like he got beat up by ten dudes.

“The mixtape featured mostly production, cause at that point he was only an aspiring rapper, but it also featured a snippet of 'Jesus Walks.' It was like, 'Oh shit!' It also had 'Through the Wire,' where he was rapping through a wired jaw. That's when you could tell this is a motivated dude who wasn't going to let anything get in the way of his goals.”
