so, this past Saturday–I turned 29. I decided that in tribute to my last year in my 20s I’d take my talents down to South Beach for a quick weekend getaway. It was entirely too short and I must go back for longer soon. It also happened to be the FSU/UMiami game so lots of folks on my flights were wearing their FSU nalia and I met TOOOONS of New Yorkers in town for Carnival weekend. I’m telling you, every group of folks we ran into were from NY. Brooklyn to be exact. and yall know I love my BK peeps so we chopped it up with several homies reppin’ Haiti, Guyana, Trinidad, Jamaica and more. good times.
anyway, I laughed at myself because I didn’t even know what this “look ma, no hands” thing everyone was tweeting a few weeks ago until I went to ATL for the FAMU/TSU classic. I’m under a rock when it comes to certain music and artists. Albeit on purpose. That weekend we partied at Compound and Wale himself performed a few songs to include his verse on that song. I also heard a few more songs…one in particular became my weekend celebration anthem. *hangs head in shame in advance* here it is below:
uhm. yes. this song. I know. I know. But I’m saying.
now the “Ohletsdoit” song I discovered went HARD in the club back in Feb during CIAA so I know this dude Waka makes party jams. But otherwise I do NOT listen to dude. This song? yeah buddy… brought out my inner thug. Which is usually only revealed when I party in ATL. Miami got a lil thug outta me too.
and then there’s this song.
yall know I don’t do this dude at all. I’m talking Gucci, not Swizz yall already know I love him. I’ve seen this joint on 106 & Park but never paid attention to the song. but yea, this is another one that kinda set me off. *hangs head again* so now I like a total of 5 Gucci Mane songs instead of 4.
damn shame I can’t even think about any other more “me” like songs that remind me of this past weekend. I have a few other songs that do the job of getting me hyped–a couple with Jeezy–particularly Geeked Up and Hood Ni@@a featured here, and of course this one still does it for me right here. I’m allowed to engage in foolishness from time to time. it was my birthday 🙂
now that I’m back I will focus my musical energies on 80s pop (Whitney Houston) 90s R&B and of course the new Foreign Exchange cd…I wouldve loved to have had today off to have just one more day of foolishness though. ahh well.
