The Soundtrack of My Life

the music that keeps me going…

2012: What a Year!

Happy Holidays friends!

its been awhile I know, no need to dwell on that. I’ve been around…

I just wanted to take a few moments to talk about how great this year was for me. One thing I MAY love just as much as cooked food, is live music. And in 2012, I absolutely set a record in my life for live music.  Outdoor festivals, intimate dinner shows, club performances, and concert arenas!!! I did it all. Warning this post is kinda long–there is a lot to cover.

Since my birthday is in the fall, I spent the majority of 2012 commemorating the changing of the guard: I turned 30. and while it didn’t seem that major to me at the time, upon reflecting on this year I can say I’ve had wayyyyy more good times, great times even than bad and I’m gonna just go ahead and make the correlation there–the 30s have been good to me thus far. Now 31 years old, I’ve continued to learn more about myself, and I just really have to look back and reflect on all the awesome moments. Epic memories that will be treasured. I’m not totally where I want to be but I’m on my way! and I’ve had a great time on the journey thus far.  This blog is my way of capturing some of it, the musical moments at least.

I started off 2012, January 1st to be specific at The Fillmore in Silver Spring, MD to see Wale. Now there was a time that this dude was my FAVORITE new rapper–somewhere around 2009. In 2011 I saw him at Merriweather Post Pavilion as an act for Lupe Fiasco’s LASERS tour. I dug his show so I was curious to see him solo. I was surprised to see all the hipsters and teens in the crowd but I guess I shouldn’t have, huh? The Ambition album had been out awhile and he did a good mix of songs from that, his studio debut as well as his mixtapes (read: his better material). The events that took place at this show with my girl and I cannot be exposed (lol) but just know it was a wild, humorous day, that lended to a great concert going experience and we had a ball.

This blog would be incomplete if I did not include the numerous performances of DC’s own Black Alley. I moved to this area late 2010 and got put on to them in 2011. Going to see Black Alley perform is one of my regular highlights in 2012 whether it be Stadium on Wednesdays, Bar 7 on Thursdays, or Indulj on Fridays we were in the place jamming to this soul garage band. I really was pressed to buy their CD Soul Swagger Rock Sneakers. It was sold out at EVERY show I went to. I eventually copped it on iTunes and it did NOT disappoint. In addition to their weekly club gigs, I saw Black Alley perform at the NY Ave Beach Bar and on the Navy Pier for an All White Party in the summer among other local bands. great times. One of my absolute favorite songs that Black Alley covers is Katy Perry’s “ET.”  In my opinion its better than the original. I also like their cover of FUN’s “We Are Young”.

The spring was pretty ho hum but ooooh we turned it up in May at Drake’s Club Paradise tour at the Verizon Center. This show had a full cast of all the hot rappers and while we didn’t get there in time to see 2Chainz, we saw performances by Meek Mill, Waka Flocka Flame, J. Cole, and “Mr. Marvin’s Room” himself, Aubrey Graham aka Drake. He did not disappoint. He also brought out these artists during his set to do various collabos such as “Amen”  “Round of Applause” and “No Lie”. I was totally miffed that J. Cole and Drake did NOT perform “In the Morning” together, that made no sense to me. Cole had a pretty high energy set (I was surprised) and he did that song solo. errr. why?  I am not a  Waka fan so while he has party jams they didn’t really translate well live to me. So yea, that was my cue to sit down and rest my feet before the party really got live. All in all people seem to really love or hate Drake and I lean on the love side. He did a great job of making it feel like “a club” and I mean dude has party anthems–how can you NOT party? I danced and totally felt the vibe. great show.

In August I attended the annual Summer Spirit Festival that takes place at Merriweather Post Pavilion in Columbia, MD. I missed this show last year because they cancelled it for some reason so I was excited to go this year. A plus was that it fell on my boo TT’s birthday so this wrapped up her bday festivities. its a outdoor lawn concert in the heart of summer so… it was HOT!! scorching even. And I decided to wear a black tshirt–what was I thinking?? smh. I had fun though. Acts included Eric Roberson (I had seen better sets of his); Estelle– a REALLY good set! and she sounded SUPERB LIVE. I was impressed; Chuck Brown Tribute Band (they were soooo dope! and you know the dc area crowd favorites); Sharon Jones & the Dap Kings — LISTEN. my first time seeing them live and jeez! that Sharon Jones ROCKED. ROCKED I SAY! she was having a full on party on that stage by herself. The Dap Kings provided great musicianship that really epitomized what I love about live music. Common performed also and he was his usual fahn self.

The headliner was no other than my boo thang Erykah Badu. *sigh* she hurt my heart yall. She performed like what 5, 6 songs? changed the melody up on too many of them and just didn’t seem into it. and didn’t even perform her best hits. I went home and immediately played Mama’s Gun to keep her in good standing in my life cuz I wanted to quit her that day. I’ve seen her do much better before so I’ma just let this go…

Labor Day weekend we redeemed ourselves missing 2Chainz at Club Paradise when we caught his show at the 9:30 Club in DC. Now, I admit I was not the biggest Tity Boi fan until he put out “Spend It” and got on a few features this year but hey. This was definitely his year and his show was high energy from beginning to end. It was also my first time in the 9:30 Club. His album hadn’t even been out a solid week I don’t think and he performed ALL THE SONGS, and the crowd knew them all (including me, lol). He definitely turned up and I had a great time. I think this had a lot to do with the timing of me seeing this show. He’s not the kind of artist with timeless music that you’d want to hear live over and over but I enjoyed myself in that moment.

Later in September I visited the Howard Theatre in DC to see Miguel. Howard Theatre was recently renovated and reopened earlier this year I believe, and they  have some great shows!!! If I was rich I’d just post up there daily. I mean, they ALWAYS have someone good coming there, and the prices are pretty reasonable–anywhere from $20-50 bucks. If you are in the area I definitely recommend you peruse their website and attend a show or two, or three. lol. I thought the theater was beautiful and while this show was standing room like many of the others, its visually gorgeous not a hole in the wall.

Now, I can admit that am an official Miguel stan. I wasn’t before this show–ok yes I was. His first album was R&B perfection to me.  I also saw him for the first time during the LASERS show and I knew he could rock. But THIS SHOW??  This show was about a week or so before his sophormore album came out and I am not lying I ran to the stores to buy it after seeing him live. He WOWED ME. I had previously heard most of the tracks due to the preview EPs he put out but yea, hearing them performed live sold it for me. His voice sounds just like the cd’s, his guitarist was dope sauce and just! AMAZING SHOW. lots of fun. Miguel is like a young Prince–he blends genres, he’s kinda androgynous, he’s sexy in a weird way… I dig him. A LOT. I’ve anticipated and enjoyed every single thing he’s put out and I can only hope for more greatness in him.

In October just a couple days after my bday, I met friends at The Birchmere in Alexandria, VA to see the Robert Glasper Experiment. If you haven’t heard their latest album Black Radio please check it out! It was a tad disappointing they didn’t have any special guests to sing their songs (they are a eclectic jazz band that incorporates all genres; Glasper is a pianist) but it was quite an enjoyable show. The music is just so intoxicating. He recently released a Black Radio Remix EP but I haven’t yet checked it out.

In November I got the opportunity to go see MR. STEVIE WONDER at the Norfolk Scope for an Obama campaign rally. Listen. I drove from Maryland that same afternoon and went back the next day, it was that serious to go see that living legend Stevie. We rocked out too! Even though Stevie likes to remix his songs (to my chagrin) changing the lyrics to make them relevant to the situation, I enjoyed myself. and it was free! gotta love free.

3 days later I went with a girlfriend to The Hamilton to see Alice Smith. I wrote a blog about her not a couple years ago wondering where she had been so of COURSE I had to go see her. It was my first time seeing her live and SHE DID NOT DISAPPOINT. That woman can SANG! Now I am not gay but I was so close to the stage and she was so gorgeous and awesome and I’m not lying I kinda fell in love with her there. yea. She said she has a new album coming out in February and I sincerely hope so because I need more of her in my life. After that show I listened to her 2006 debut daily for about a week afterwards. Yes, she did that. I love when an artist moves you like that. She and Miguel are my top shows this year.

So after that great show we immediately found out Emily King was also coming to The Hamilton. What a coinkydink she was also in that same blog post!!! Her 2007 debut East Side Story was one I played TO DEATH. She also put out an EP last year, and a single here and there so I was curious to see her live. She played the guitar along with many of the songs, and it was just a very mellow show. She did a couple covers but mostly performed songs from the Seven EP. Good times! The Hamilton has become my fave venue in the DC area so far and I look forward to more shows in such a visually pleasing, intimate setting.  I also have enjoyed experiencing up and coming artists that open in these smaller venues. I haven’t spent much time discovering new artists but as a soul music lover its good to know so many people are still out here grinding and dedicated to sharing great music with the world!

So that’s my year. as it wraps up, I look forward to ending it in true music lover fashion: on December 31st I will be back at the Fillmore to see THE LEGENDARY ROOTS CREW. I saw them in December last year and they never disappoint so this is the perfect way for me, to end such an awesome year. I now know where all my money has been going. lol. And on shoes, can’t forget the shoes. 🙂

This post was long, but it was overdue! Happy holidays music lovers. Maybe this post will inspire you to check out more live music in your area, discover some new artists, or revisit some old favorites. Here’s to more great times in 2013. Maybe I’ll be inspired to blog about them, or not. But don’t give up on ya girl!!   🙂

Did you attend any awesome concerts this year? discover any new artists? let me know!!

I know that we don’t know each other well…

But I can’t believe I’m wasting your time, oh no
So tell me what to do
For the love of you tonight…

Cuz I’ve been holding back what I feel
Love’s so real
But I can’t wait another minute
I can’t wait another minute
Cuz I’ve been holding back all I feel
I’m for real
Cuz I can’t wait another minute
I can’t wait another minute for your love…

I love this song. Came on last night while I was in the midst of my nightly beauty rituals and I had to put it on repeat. I think I may have featured this on a previous Throwback Thursday post but so what. It’s my favorite Hi-Five song and reminded me how much I miss boy bands/groups. I miss the 90s (and previous decades) when it was cool to sing about how much you liked a girl, and wanted to get to know her better. Not just how much you would like to see her naked…but I digress. Those harmonies were awesome.  RIP Tony Thompson, you and the rest of Hi-Five definitely remain a force in my life’s soundtrack. 20 years later this song still does it for me. Thanks for the memories and the feel good vibes.

I Give Her That Insomnia…

’cause off with the lights, then off with her clothes

and I keep her up like no doze

I give her that insooooooomnia

til I feel her body tremble like an earthquake.

the more I give, the more that she takes…

giving her insoooooooomnia…

listen. (no really listen, click the picture above to hear) its not even Friday. But this song right here?

so I’ve stated several times on this blog that Raheem is my favorite male singer. On my commute today, this song came across my ipod while on shuffle. Prior to it, I was listening to my other fave Teedra Moses.  I was reminded how in high school my ABSOLUTE favorite singers were MJB and R. Kelly. Anything I could even imagine I was going through in my teenage angst or jubilance, these two would have a song about it, and I could find a track to fit any mood I had.

In my more recent adult life, I feel like that void has been now filled with Teedra and Raheem. Neither of them have that “worldwide, mainstream” appeal of my fave 90s R&B artists, but they both have good followings, and decent sized catalogs of material.

With Teedra, she’s had label issues that have hindered her 2nd studio album production, but Raheem just genuinely enjoys putting out music! 3 studio albums–all of which have had to grow on me since I hold The Love Experience to SUCH a high standard. But the mixtapes–THE MIXTAPES? usually I fall in love with on immediate listen.  Its easy to do especially when he covers current and older popular radio hits. But in the case of The Art of Noise, its original music.  I’ve reviewed a few on here before, but honestly its not until I listen to his music in shuffle format on my iPod that I am really able to digest lyrics with fresher ears, revisit melodies and remember why it is I love him as an artist so much. He is just that talented. The song above inspired my ability to do that.

Yall remember how he had the internets going nuts with that “She’s Single” joint–I won’t subject anyone to that kind of heat today–it is still early in the work week, so below is a more upbeat track not quite as “freaky”.

Featuring fellow DC artist Tabi Bonney.

please don’t be distracted by this video (lol–which I didn’t even know existed) this song BUMPS!!!!

maybe yall are familiar with these joints, or maybe not. But if you are a fan of Raheem you need to cop that The Art of Noise. It was a nice addition to my Radio Rah collection in 2009.  The “Fever” was featured on Mr. February x March Madness.

Walk your broken heart through that door…

Sit yo sexy ass on that couch
Wipe that lipstick off of your mouth
I take it… slow.

Listen. I know we have Aubrey jokes for days, but every so often he sets a sexy verse off right. I’ve mentioned one of my faves by him from So Far Gone Before, and also I dug his addition to my lightskinted crush J. Cole’s joint In The Morning.

This verse is so perfect because on first listen the beat loops for awhile and with over 4 minutes already in you think the song is over, but then he starts flowing and its like OH OK!

plus he has that forceful thing I dig from a man–most women don’t mind being told what to do, you just have to say it sexy! Towards the end of the verse he speeds his flow up, and I’m like “I see you Drake”. Wery well done,  the type of music I think he shines on.

This is one of my faves from The Weeknd’s latest EP Thursday called “The Zone.”  He does the whiny voice thing that annoys me after about 3 songs in, but this song was a pleasant surprise with the Drake feature and makes it worth it to me…

Why you rushing me baby
It’s only us
I don’t wanna die tonight baby
So let me sip this slow
I’ll give you what you called for
Just let me get me in my zone
I’ll be making love to her through you
So let me keep my eyes closed
And I wont see a damn thing
I can’t feel a damn thing
But if I touch you right
I wont see a damn thing
I can’t feel a damn thing
But I’ma touch you right…

“Let me get inside my zone…” And that’s all I got. Enjoy. Happy Friday 🙂

You said you were different…

but you’re the same. Straaaaanger.

I can not tell you,
how many there have been 
that were just like you
I do not need you
cause you’re just like them.

I meet em’ everyday 
they…all seem to be the same 
lame. okay?

I’m late to Jhene Aiko. I had seen her name around twitter–where I follow some of the best people in terms of musical tastes, really. There are a handful of folks whose opinions I  trust and I make a mental note to check out who they are checking for.  I don’t always do right away (like now) but I get around to it. Earlier this week I downloaded her mixtape and I’ve been vibing to it every since.

Jhene’s Sailing Souls mixtape came out in March, and the video for this song in particular dropped last month sometime. I haven’t yet peeped anything else by her but I do dig the sound on this project.

you know my name, you know my face,
but you don’t know me? you must be crazy…

or I must be crazy. or is it maybe…
I’ve been here times before and 
I’ve said yes, meaning no but oh…
alot of shit has changed. lot of shit has changed.
lot of lot of shit has changed…

Didn’t I tell you what all the rest have done?
they were just like you, they have all tried to.
you’re not the only one.

I think we may be
In a different book
on a different page…

There is also a remix with Jesse Boykins III I found out via the magic of the google. In my opinion, JB3’s voice oozes sex. He could sing the alphabet and make it sexy. So I guess this could qualify as #freakyfridaypost too! peep below.

you know my name we play our games lately I feel like this romance is hazy…

Are you familiar with Jhene Aiko? If so, please let me know what some faves are. If not, check it out for yourself. If you read here, I assume you value my opinion too! Preciate it.

Happy Friday. 🙂

You Got to Show Me…

and mean the words you say
its not a game for me baby
its just not that way…

I’m only one woman baby
treat me like a lady
you gotta take the time to show me
that I’m your one and only
I’m only one woman baby
and I need a one woman man

check out those 90’s fashions! I used to be a HUGE Jade fan back in the day.

Jade to the Max was released in 1992, and went Platinum. I totally wore this CD out. My favorite songs were of course their hit “Don’t Walk Away” and also their cover of “Don’t Ask My Neighbor.”  Their debut single “I Wanna Love You” was also featured on the soundtrack to the movie Class Act–one of my personal 90s faves. You really couldn’t go wrong with a Kid N Play flick back then.

The early 90s were filled with girl groups, and Jade was one of many.  I think the lyrics of this song, are pretty straight forward and basically describing what most women want–a faithful man that’s ride or die. lol

The portion of the bridge highlighted at the beginning of the post stand out to me because I pretty much want  actions to align with your words. Being cognizant of one’s actions; how they treat you are better indicators of someone’s interest that just lip service. In my humble opinion, of course.

you never have to wonder if  I care
If you’re sharing the way I feel for love you know I’m real
I’m the kind of girl to dedicate my world
but you gotta give me all you got
I need it all every drop…

I don’t know about every drop, save some for Jesus and ya mama’nem too!

Now peep this track below from their second album which I assume in my mind is the anthem if the guy in question isn’t holding up his end of the bargain… Before “to the left to the left” and that other countdown, Jade were bringing it in a similar kick him out fashion.

were you fans of Jade? or were they a blip on the radar amongst all the other girl groups that didn’t go that far?

Give Me the Reason to Love You…

…and I want to love you more.

This is a really sweet song.

Those that follow me on twitter may have peeped my elated joy listening to Faith Evans’ self titled debut CD a couple nights ago. I made it my night time ritual soundtrack. I don’t know if many other people do this, but I like to listen to music while I bathe. I know a lot of people play music while getting dressed/getting ready to go out, but just to get ready to go to bed? yea, I do that too. lol. Since I have an iHome, I turn the music up and leave the bathroom door open to sing along while I pin curl my hair, shower or bath, then get out brush my teeth and all the other necessary things you do. Depending on the tunes, its very relaxing. And also might encourage sweet dreams 😉

“Sitting in here thinking about you
And all the joy you bring oh baby
I just can’t live without you
Cause your love means everything…”

My iPod is always on shuffle, so even when I sort for a particular album or artist, it doesn’t play the songs in track order. I don’t like many surprises, but I do enjoy not knowing what song is gonna play next for some reason. So while my ears may have been “ready” to hear “No Other Love” that isn’t what I got. About 8 songs in I found myself wanting to hear this song in particular. I could no longer just wait and be surprised, I had to find it, and play it. It makes me think of my sis Tisha, and our previous convos about those “rain drops”–you gotta admit that is A HOT sound effect. It totally adds to the smooth vibe of the song.

“When I can’t seem to find my way
You brighten up my darkest day
The reason to love you more…”

When this album came out I can’t say this song was one of my favorites, but in recent years it has grown to be.

Faith is an example to me of one that flows beautifully from beginning to end, and even when I don’t listen in order, I have such an affinity for each song, I don’t mind how its played. “Reasons” is listed as a bonus track and I’m glad it was included! You know, sometimes I listen to this album and I think its a top contender against its “rival” of sorts, My Life. I know that album is a certified R&B classic and I’m just saying Faith is as well. To me. Production wise, Faith’s debut is definitely better than Mary’s, IMO. However there is no comparison on who has (had?) the better career, but we gotta give credit where its due to Ms. Evans for her contributions via background vocals, and songwriting.

I love all of the songs but I gotta say my favorite on the album and of all time by Faith is “Soon As I Get Home.” Peep the video below. 

Do you love this CD? What are you favorite songs?

What’s in my earbuds, summer ’11 edition

Hey!

It feels like its been forever since I blogged. I dont even apologize for it. I’ve been living life, enjoying the hell summer and while music is ALWAYS a part of that life–writing about it sometimes just isn’t. I hadn’t even logged into wordpress the entire time. I did miss it, glad to see folks still discovering the site and reading it. No post is too old to comment on, in my opinion. 🙂

But in the month and a half or so hiatus of living “off the wall”  there has been TONS of new music released. TONS. so much that I still haven’t wrapped my good “listening” ears around much of it. but I’m working my way through.

one thing I don’t like to do is rush my tastes because something is hot. I kinda rushed thru Marsha Ambrosius’ CD the last time I did a post like this. I like it a lot more now than I did then, which I figured I would.

so let me first get the obvious out of the way: Beyonce. so, yall know I’m no King B stan–actually I think calling herself King is stupid as hell, but I digs the hell outta “4” like seriously, I haven’t rocked with Bey hard since Dangerously in Love, and I mean that.  She’s had singles here and there on her other projects I liked, but I don’t have a full Beyonce CD on my ipod at all. On first listen “Rather Die Young” and “Countdown” stood out to me, the first for the melody and her vocals, the second just for that catchy ass Boyz II Men sample. Plus her quotables like “all up in my kitchen in my heels, dinner time” and “ooh I think I luh dat boy, do anything fuh dat boy” ahh, the romantic in me  thinks that’s so sweet *sigh* okay moving on. After repeat listens, I definitely feel “I Miss You” those lyrics speak to me, and despite her saying “algeba” I DO like “1+1” as well. Also while it’s 2011’s Irreplaceable, I enjoy “The Best I Never Had.”

“Party” goes hard, but ‘Ye and 3 Stacks dont’ go quite as hard as they couldve–I mean wtf is swagu? I guess. It is a pop song. Just listening again this weekend in the car (you HAVE to test CDs for whip approval) I noticed the throaty efforts on “Start Over” which work for me too. Overall I just think its a good pop album, and I have no problem admitting that it pleases my ears. A lot. I’m such a typical girl for this but I don’t care. lol

^^ face beat, tits sitting high, fierce hair, giving much face! I love Jilly from Philly.

I wanted to post this pic instead of her album cover just because its so damn fly!!!

ok The Light of the Sun is a CD I’m still working thru. I don’t love it yet. But honestly I only loved her first two CDs immediately. Vol. 3 had to grow on me, but baby when it did!?!?!?! LOVE. Jill does no wrong in my eyes so while I’m not in love yet, I love HER, and I’m pleased with her latest offering. Faves include: “So In Love” with Anthony Hamilton, “So Gone”, “Hear My Call”, and “Making You Wait”

I love me some Lloyd.  I consider Street Love to be a hood classic. Year of the Lover was no slump either. I wrote a post awhile back on how consider my boy to be seriously slept on. I didn’t check for Lloyd’s first CD but Street Love is what made me a fan. He is as I say “my favorite nasally yodeler”. “Lay Your Head” is a song I HATED on first listen but damn if that “ole ole oooooleeeee” aint grow on me! I mean, its Lloyd. He  does it for me like The Dream–I often ask myself why I love them so, but then I just resolve not to question it, just vibe to the music. SO I DO!  Now “Cupid” is a song I immediately thought was cutesy and the visuals in the video helped me to enjoy it more. Still need to give this one a few more spins before I identify faves.

Miss Moses, Miss Moses! Yall know this is my grown woman crush and I STANS for Teedra! She’s gorgeous, she’s fly,and she has just a splash of hood that makes her relatable to me. lol Her latest offering is short, but definitely sweet.  I am anxiously awaiting a feature album. “Another Lovr” “Invitation”  ok how about all of it is hot to me. With only 10 songs. not too much extra or fluff, just the chill vibe that Ms. Moses is known for. Check it out for download here.

I’ve also been listening to Ledisi’s Pieces of Me, Jean Grae’s Cookies or Comas, Kendrick Lamar’s Section.80–prior to hearing this I had not listened to any of his music, so I was pleasantly surprised. And older music is always in rotation.

so tell me, what has your summer soundtrack been looking like? If you’ve heard the joints featured in this post–what are your faves? let me know!!!

Do Something…

The way he kissed my lips (yeah)
He got me wet in my pants (yeah)
He made my whole body start, to do something
Was this a sign of a true man (oooh oooh ooh ooh)
He began to dig me out (hey), out
He began to give me his all
When he began to go downtown, and do something...

That’s when his girlfriend called…

ok this is where the song turns. lol We find out this is a cheating anthem.

While writing the Diddy remix post last week I went through my Bad Boy catalog which of course included me revisiting Total’s second album. Kima, Keisha & Pam is actually something that is in regular rotation for me, I’ve blogged before about how I loved these raunchy broads back in the day. I can relate to the music more now in my adulthood. Despite being the creep joint, and the girlfriend confrontation, I gotta admit this is a freaky song.

The way he touched my back
Felt like I had a heart-attack (yeah)
The way he walked and licked his lips
It did something
I was on it like that (oooooh) yeah yeah yeah yeah
He liked to lick my face
So I had to give him lot’s of space (yeah) yeah mmm
Just when he began to give me his all…

Hmm. Do Something.

and another for the road–one of my faves from More About Nothing

 

(without the talking interlude)

Happy Friday 🙂

Even When The Sky Comes Falling..

Even when the sun don’t shine
I got faith in you and I
So put your pretty little hand in mine
Even when we’re down to the wire babe
Even when it’s do or die
We can do it baby simple and plain
cuz this love is a sure thing…

If you be the cash
I’ll be the rubberband
You be the match
Imma be a fuse
Boom!
Painter baby
you could be the muse
I’m the reporter baby
You could be the news
Cause your the cigarette
And I’m the smoker
We raise a bet…
Cause you’re the  joker
Truth though…
You are the chalk
And I could be the blackboard
And you can be the talk
And I could be the walk…

This is my favorite song right now. That is all.

Ya’ll digging that Miguel? I like it a lot.
