The Soundtrack of My Life

the music that keeps me going…

Cuz I’m back on my grind…

“money back on my mind, Ye and Killa Cam, the world is mine!”


so I just read the other day that Kanye is working on a new album–coming out this summer. June I think? all over it. my fave is Late Registration, and I briefly mentioned it in a past blog post–but I do acknowledge the impact College Dropout had on hip hop and the past decade.

I stand by my belief that Kanye is a better producer than rapper, but his flow has evolved immensely and in between albums he has put out some dope verses on remixes and features. Some featured in other posts like Kinda Like a Big Deal, Put On remix, and Run This Town.

Asshole aside, he’s genius to me. I look forward to seeing what he has to offer this go round musically.

Btw, I did NOT ever listen to 808s & Heartbreak so I cant’ speak on that but…here are some of my other faves  from his other 3 HIP HOP cds.

I’ve already blogged about Flashing Lights, We Major, Two Words, Spaceship, and Champion…here are a few more I dig! only a few being as I have already mentioned a bunch of tracks that I love!

“why is everything that’s supposed to be bad, makes me feel so good?” DAMN GOOD QUESTION.

Home has been my SHAT since I first heard of Kanye West and downloaded some advance tracks for College Dropout. this song was not put on the release and was reworked for Graduation as “Homecoming”. This version with John Legend is WAY better!

come on ya’ll knew I had to mention this cuz it features Hov! the song is hot with and without him…

stop all ya bloodclot cryin!~ Hov

“I be there in 5 minutes…5 hours later: I’ll be there in 5 minutes.” Grrr. late people irk me, I hate being late myself–but I love this song. It may be my favorite Kanye song. “hmm I’ll be on time for that!” LOL

I am realizing that I feature ‘Ye in a lot of my posts! that’s influence! I guess that makes me officially a fan, huh? lol. The relevancy of his music to my life is very evident now that I’ve typed it all out…

so what are your favorites? (I probably listed them all, I OD’d with the link backs on this post!). Looking forward to the new release?

in my earbuds pt. 3…favorite songs this week

so, I was reminded yesterday that one of my favorite songs right now is of course by one of the men I love….

“they say it aint trickin if you got it, they lyin. I say it aint trickin if you got HER, she mine…”

Loso! one of my facebook friends mentioned that the Throw it in the bag remix shouldve been on the CD. I agree. I actually planned to revisit the CD this week because I haven’t listened to it since I bought it…and that’s not a good sign, I’ve already forgotten whats on it. hmmmm.

so what else have I been listening to?

I’m Good -Clipse ft. Pharrell: I mean…its Clipse and Pharrell!!!  you know I rep two up two down even though they from tidewater

Mario- Break Up: this one isn’t new anymore, but its sooooo infectious. and I love Mario too.

Rather Be With You -Wale ft. J. Cole & Currensy: one of my faves from the Back to the Feature mixtape. when I first heard it I played it over and over…the production is sick. J Cole rips it in the beginning. gosh I love this nasty song! LOL. They do nasty so much better than say a Plies with his wack crass ass bust it baby/becky shit….

Where I’m From- Jay-Z: one of my favorite songs by him, and because I watch MTB, I’m always hearing the beat because Diddy decided he wanted to use it! ugh! that frustrates me more than anything…. “where we argue all day about whose the best emcees Biggie, Jay Z and Nas..”

Muah -Electrik Red: not sure how I feel about them, I mean I’ve had their joint for awhile and its aight. however I love this one song right here! I don’t care what people say about girls erroneously assigning “theme” songs… “I’m the shit, with this shit…mmm muah!”

Yo Side of the Bed -Trey Songz: so Ready is finally about to be released, and I uhm have already acquired it. I’m gonna buy it, but I’m not quite done sampling it yet. This song I’ve liked since I heard it on the mixtape…so far listening to Ready I’ll just say, I don’t like it better than Trey Day…or even Anticipation

Can’t tell me nothing- Kanye: this was a hot ass song. I remember the first time I heard it like….ooohhh! me likes. “man its so hard not to act reckless….”

For Real -Amel Larrieux: I heard this song yesterday and thought “awww!” I used to LOVE THIS. still do. great love song. and Bravebird was a great cd! check the video below:

a random mix yes…but it works for me! if you haven’t heard these ever, or its just been awhile click the links are ride out!!!

You Know I Had to Do it….

 

Life’s a game but it’s not fair
I break the rules so I don’t care
So I keep doin’ my own thing
Walkin’ tall against the rain
Victory’s within the mile
Almost there, don’t give up now
Only thing that’s on my mind
Is who’s gonna run this town tonight….


dressed in all black like the omen. yessir.

I dig. Hov, Ye and Rihanna swag is on quadruple billions!

“I’m just tryin’ to change the color on your mood wing
Reebok
Baby
You need to drop some new things
Have you ever had shoes without shoe strings?”

Kanye’s verse> Jay’s first verse, but I still eff with this…come on sept 11th! BP3!

Spaceship…

I’ve been workin’ this graveshift and I ain’t made shit
I wish I could buy me a spaceship and fly past the sky

I’ve been workin’ this graveshift and I ain’t made shit
I wish I could buy me a spaceship and fly past the sky
eh, its monday. Spaceship is my song of the day. not much else to say about it, its pretty self explanatory….there is a lot on my mind…..I need a vacation. A real one.

I wanna fly, I wanna fly
I said I want my chariot to pick me up
And take a sister for a ride…..
