A FlyCool Mix!  

Over the past year or so I have had the opportunity to rock with the FlyCool Club on a number of occasions.  So I was very excited to see them dropping the new album. It is here now and its called "Ten"  The album is available for download and streaming on all the major music platforms.  So do me, and yourself a favor and go purchase or stream the album now!  >> https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/ten/1440074791

I have put together a mix of a few of my favorite FlyCool songs and their latest single closes out the mix.  If you're new to them its just a taste of what you can expect on the newly released album.  I'll have a full review of the album coming soon.

 

 

#MusicMonday “Be Yourself”  

This is definitely one of my favorite tracks to bump while I’m riding. Just a real cool vibe dope production and a good message without being an overly soft love song or too aggressive.  A good breakout hit from up and coming artist Carleone out of St. Louis, MO. Check out his other joint off the project as well I really like “Something Safe” too.

#TBT Letter to My Younger Self (Video) 

My homie Derek Dow asked me to write a letter to my younger self for a project he was working on. Of course my letter took the form of a song.  We took that song and made this little video.  I listen to it now a few years later and it still moves me the way it did then when i wrote it. So here is my #throwbackthursday "Letter to My Younger Self"

 

 

FBF or TBT either way "U Like Me"

Snoop Dogg Tribute Mix (SIC Sundays) 

This month at SIC Sundays we are celebrating the music of Snoop Dogg.  I must say this mix was hard simply because snoop has so much flavor and so many different styles.  it was not as hard as the 2Pac mix but definitely you know when its time to mix a legends catalog.  Its simply hard to contain an entire catalog to less than 15 minutes and be representative.  But here it is for my west coast gangsta rap and Snoop Dogg fans.  Come check out my bro DJ Kwiet Storm in his live tribute mix to snoop this sunday at our event.  Tickets available now! 

 

 

Don't Do It! (Inspired by Tell A Friend Tuesday) 

If you have watched the latest episode of Tell A Friend Tuesdays 9/5/2017 then you heard this instrumental in the background. If you haven't you can check that out on my facebook page  This joint is definitely one of the records that I am very proud of. Its features me and producer Sammy Vee doing what we do.  I think this song connects with my #TAFT message which is to Worry Less, Care More.  I talk about worrying and slipping into a bad state of mind. After realizing i was in a bad place i just said eff it lets make this work and do something bigger! My opening line goes.. I used to be an average joe, I'm not really interested in being average no more.  This reigns true for me everyday. So check out the joint let me know what you think.  Don't forget to check out my latest Tell A Friend Tuesday video on my facebook page as well. www.facebook.com/p1rap

Songs that Tell Your Life 

Have you ever heard a song and just knew that the song was speaking your life? It happens to me at times, its like the artist is speaking my experience and in touch with what I'm feeling and going through at that very moment. This song right here did it for me. I just heard it for the first time today on the NPR Tiny Desk Concert (i recommend any music lover check that series out).  I heard the acoustic version and then checked out the record itself and I'm still blown away. This is my life RIGHT NOW at this moment!  Check it out I'm sure other people are dealing with something similiar. And drop your link to other life songs in the comments below. I like to hear songs where artists get it right and really capture that moment, feeling, situation and create the perfect soundtrack for people going through it!
