You Haven't Heard 'The Life of Pablo' Until You've Heard 'The Life of Paul'

Sites like HipHopIsRead have spent years of curating sample sources for some of your favorite albums, and while I've also heard DJs do mixes throwing in the original samples in, I've not heard a project quite like The Life of Paul. Apparently sorted out by a Reddit user, this is probably the most deluxe edition of Kanye West's The Life of Pablo you've ever heard. Not only did they make sure to include tracks not on the project, like "Only One" and "All Day," but there are simple things like a "Pt. 3" version of "Father Stretch My Hands" utilizing the DJ Dodger Stadium remix.

If you know how we do, we rocks with original sources and samples, as well as educating the youth.
