Sunday Scaries Volume 7. Live from the library. Holy shit.
1. Fearless - Pink Floyd
My friend G$ introduced me to Pink Floyd's 1971 album "Meddle," and since then, "Fearless" has become one my all-time favorites from them. Pink Floyd just floats around for like 7 minutes straight. It's getting cold as hell on the East Coast, and this is a great song to warm you up by the fireplace.
2. Go There - SiR
Hailing from Inglewood, California, SiR is the latest artist to join the ranks of Top Dawg Entertainment. "Go There" is from the singer/songwriter's 2016 album "Her." He dropped his most recent mixtape "Her Too" in 2017, and it's got some great tracks on it. Definitely looking forward to seeing what he has in store for 2018.
3. The Waters - Anderson .Paak feat. BJ The Chicago Kid
If you haven't already, I highly recommend that you go through Anderson .Paak's latest album "Malibu" in its entirety. It's amazing from top to bottom. In "The Waters," he teamed up with BJ The Chicago Kid, who I posted about last week. Killer duo. Anderson .Paak goes off in this.
4. Use Me - Bill Withers
Bill Withers put out a ton of bangers in the 1970s. His albums "Still Bill" (1971) and "Menagerie" (1977) both went Gold in the US. "Use Me" is from "Still Bill," and it's spectacular. The combination of the synth/drum line and Bill Wither's voice actually makes me want to run through a god damn wall. Gotta be one of the hardest synth lines ever recorded.
5. Morse - Nightmares on Wax
Really cool tune from Nightmares on Wax. An instrumental definitely worth your listen. I love how the beat almost goes completely silent, and then comes back hitting hard. I suggest you dig around his Spotify page, he's made a lot of great stuff throughout the years. Very similar to Moby's genre of music.
6. So High - French Montana feat. Curren$y
I hadn't heard this song in like two years til' we played it this weekend on our way to New York City. Reminds me of some pretty electric times in high school. Such a cool beat by producer Harry Fraud, who's made some great tunes with artists like Action Bronson and the A$AP Mob. He sampled "Lotus Blossom" by Michael Franks & I promise it'll be stuck in your head for most of the day.
7. Ain't Too Proud To Beg - The Rolling Stones
Iconic tune that came on Classic Vinyl while I was driving around my hometown today. Pretty exquisite timing if you ask me. "Ain't Too Proud to Beg" is originally by the Temptations, but the Stones (of course) crushed the cover.
8. Unexplainable - Kodak Black
One of the songs off Kodak's new album "Project Baby 2" that went under the radar for me. Digey sent it to me today and I've been blasting it. It's hard not to love Kodak's music, which is probably why he's become so massive lately. Yeah I think I'm all that w/ this big chain. I gottttta catch a live performance.
