I’ve mulling over what song to choose for this week since last week. Right now as I’m typing, I have no idea what song will be at the end of this paragraph. This week has been up, down and all around. I’ve been frustrated to the point of wanting to say fuck it all. I’ve been on cloud nine for my friends and their accomplishments. I’ve been bubbling with ideas and nervous about taking steps to make them reality. A complete rollercoaster. What song out there in the world describes a rollercoaster? I don’t know. I’m not about the rollercoaster life though. I’m learning how to chill out and take things as they come, but never stop planning and preparing for the future.
I’ve finally decided on a feel good song, which is appropriate since I can say that as of this moment, that’s exactly how I feel. And I’m going to try to keep this feeling. I’m alive and in good health. My little family unit has a roof over our heads and food to eat. And we’ll be welcoming another member any day now. I’m happy.
Happy Face. Enjoy, it’s a throwback. Sidenote: I had floor seats at this concert, and had a ball.
Hope everyone out there had a great week. I did. Thanks for asking. Today’s song isn’t inspirational. This track doesn’t make me think. It makes me happy. Last night the homie Nicole decided that at the end of our night it was a great idea to play Hyphy music on her phone. If you don’t know what Hyphy is/means, please go visit Google and come back. One of my favorite Hyphy songs is ‘Thizzle Dance’ by Mac Dre (RIP). Peep the video. Want to learn the dance? Follow directions.
Mac Dre gets down around the 1:45 mark.
I spent a good part of my work day yesterday listening to everything that I could find from Kids These Days. A group of Chicago highschool graduates who deviated from college to pursue music as a group. Musicians, vocalists, producers and MC Vic Mensa. These kids are dope.
I have two songs for today. The first is “Darling”, a single from the Hard Times EP. I like the concept of the video and Vic Mensa’s delivery.
The next video is for their latest offering, “Clear Eyes”. I love the lyrics, but the music is what has me hooked. Listen to that horn. This is smooth.
This Saturday’s feature is off of Wale’s More About Nothing mixtape. The video has a (500) Days Of Summer concept and was shot on Howard’s Campus. The classroom? Yep, that’s inside of the Howard University School Of Business. Enjoy.
I’m going to try something new. Every Saturday I’m going to post a song and/or video. Why? Because this is my blog and I can do what I want. I don’t plan on following any particular theme or scheme. I just want to post some of the songs that happen to play on a loop in my head from time to time.
First up is singer/songwriter Novel. I like this one. Enjoy!!
