I can't believe, we'll soon be covered in layers of clothing shivering with the heat on full blast listening to Christmas Carols. Ok, I'm being a little dramatic and skipping the entire Fall season. But that's what it feels like. Like I always say, "If it's not hot, it's cold." Speaking of cold, it was a bit chilly this morning. I got a little worried, then I started sweating. But it made me think of some good tunes. Check them out below.
Even though our roadtrip to LA was about five hours and we may have only been there for eight hours, it was worth the fun. We had each other (s/o to JKL and Jam) & of course dope tunes. Check out a few we played throughout the day!
Since being in the desert for the past week I've been listening to everything from TityBoi to Jerreau. From more mellow vibes to straight up LIT life (I mean I am in the city of flashing lights; Las Vegas). I may even have to do a part two to Desert Vibes because we took a quick Roadtrip to Los Angeles and then got a nice surprise when Teedra performed.
Jerreau - Champagne (Oh Baby)
I first heard this when DJ Meel sent it to me for the Selective Hearing Music Club. I was so here for not only the music club, but that initial EP I first received set the tone. One of my favorites ion the album is Champagne. Just listen, you'll love it too.
Kehlani - Gangsta
Something to slow it down and it just went with the desert heat. Can't go wrong with Kehlani.
Rick Ross x Skrillex - Purple Lamborghini
This joint really got me wild!! It's when you know you're about to have fun. I love when Skrillex collaborates with rap artists.
2Chainz - Get Out The Bed
This is one of those songs you blast and point at people like you were in the studio when Tityboi made the song.
Mac Miller ft. Anderson Paak - Dang!
So smooth, so very smooth.
Lil' Yachty - Shoot Out The Roof
How can you be so hyped and so calm at the same time...this song.
Dreezy ft. Wale - Afford My Love
I almost forgot about Dreezy then that joint with Gucci Mane dropped so I listened more and found more songs I liked. Afford My Love features Wale and of course we get a good storyline.
Jay Dot Rain - Ball & G
Initially, I had Dozen on here but it's old but still a favorite, but Ball & G is starting to become a selection as well now. If you download the iTunes playlist I have Dozen on there. But this one was a good smooth driving song. Wavy in the desert.
The Game ft. Kendrick Lamar - On Me
Nope it's not that new but it's already a classic. From the Erykah Badu sample of On & On to the extensive wordplay from The Game and Kendrick, it hasn't stopped playing since Documentary 2 dropped.
My love of music goes beyond goes far and wide! My inbox is always filled with gems that should be blasted at ignorant levels and now it's time to share beyond my contributions to The Source. Each week I'll put you on to my Top FOUR tracks in rotation for the week. Share your tracks as well. Enjoy the tunes.
Lil' Wayne ft. Drake x Used To
As if I wasn't waiting for a new Drake verse...dope beat, reminds me of 0-100, just has that get some stuff done.
DJ Sydney Love x Rodeo Drive
Nope, not a mixtape, but a very dope instrumental produced by DJ Sydney Love. Yes, the cover art eye catching and automatically makes you want to dive into what's streaming but the track behind it the real treasure. She hits heavy with her GlitterTrap series but taking risks is what separate the dreamers from the ones who are making it happen. *Adds to LA to Coachella playlist*
Villz x By Myself
Truthfully, I haven't stopped playing this entire project since I got it back in Arizona. It was also the last song I heard on my Macbook Air after spilling champagne on it. I digress, the sound is great production by Mike Ewing and songwriting skills out of this world. Blast it even if you're not by yourself. Think modern Jodeci melodies with a new spin.
Father x Wrist (HeyMcfli! Remix)
Honesty is the best policy right? Well when it comes to music, you can definitely find me at your listening party looking at you crazy if the song is pure wack juice. At first I didn't like the Wrist song at all. It just sounds like everything else but Ducko's spin makes it splashy and fun. I dig it.
