88rising collective 1999 WRITE THE FUTURE have released their star-studded debut album hella (˃̣̣̥╭╮˂̣̣̥) ✧ ♡ ‧º·˚, featuring guest appearances from the likes of BADBADNOTGOOD, Westside Gunn, Conway the Machine, Amaarae, De La Soul, Offset, Busta Rhymes, Rick Ross, Ghostface Killah, Smino and many others.

The 24-track album captures the spirit of Northern California from the wondrous perspective of 88rising leader Sean Miyashiro's childhood nostalgia, as reflected in the playful stylization of the album and song titles. It's a genre-melding concoction spanning everything from hip-hop to jazz and R&B to funk.

As previously reported, we had our first taste of the record with "MiNt cHoCoLaTe" — a misty track apt to make anyone hungry for more. Check out the full album tracklist below, and stream hella (˃̣̣̥╭╮˂̣̣̥) ✧ ♡ ‧º·˚ on your platform of choice.
