"The World is Ours" - TOKiMONSTA
These new minty sounds got me feelin’ like the world is mine… er, ours. I’m swimming underwater with rippling sonic waves passing me by, brought together with echoing samples of yesterday’s love.
"Papa Was (A Junkie) Too" - Betty Ford Boys
There are plenty more gems on this album, “Leaders Of The Brew School.” Bumped this on my bike ride through neighborhood streets on a Monday night while Lauryn’s voice vibrated through my helmet. Ride safe, protect your head, let these beats lead you all the way home & beyond.
You Kurdish and Mexican ? It is a good mixed ✌️

[Classics] On Repeat
I’m starting this new music section to my blog. At least once every week I’ll hit you with three songs I’ve had on repeat. Because I do that, I listen to the same rotation of songs until I get really sick of them and find a new rotation to obsess over. The cool thing is that these songs become so embedded in certain eras of my life that when I listen back to them months later, they give me that crazy nostalgia feeling of being where I was when I had it on repeat. Kinda like a sonic photo album for my brain.
"Nas is Like" - Nas
I’m a poor man’s dream, a thug poet. Live it and I write down and I watch it blow up.
Fun fact: DJ Premier was about to throw away the record he sampled for this song, but his instinct told him, “before you throw it away, put it on the turntable, see if you can find something on it.” ‘Nas is Like’ made the top of the Billboard charts and the beat would later be borrowed by Kendrick Lamar and J. Cole. I take it as a metaphor, like what if Nas, the poetic sage of the Queensbridge projects, would’ve never picked up that pen…
"Right On" - The Roots (feat. Joanna Newson)
That first line to Black Thought’s verse, “I try to get it how I live it,” is the best reminder in times of doubt. What you get is a product of how you live, how you live produces what you get. Something to melt in when you’re wondering how you ended up where you are right now.
"Fear Not of Man" - Mos Def
Ok, Mos Def is one of my favorite MC’s/human beings. In this first track on his 1999 debut solo album he says, “You know what’s gonna happen with Hip-Hop? Whatever’s happening with us.” Now take that, and look at where hip hop is right now and the various directions it’s headed towards. What does that say about where we’re at, where we’re going?
