Lover of all things pop culture. Ask me to rap for you & you'll be surprised at the outcome.
Damn though, “New Slaves” is gonna bang pretty fucking hard in MSG on Saturday. Ye brings me places other music doesn’t. Blessed.
Damn, Cudi’s first album is still such fire. Brings me right back to my tiny ass room in Cheverus (Fall ‘09). Feeling weird feelings of nostalgia towards memories and people I didn’t think occupied any brain space these days. Trying times. Made me grow. Made me stronger. Just weird how music can take you back there, no matter how far you’ve come.
In no way would I call O.A.R. a legendary band, nor would I refer to its members as legends, so, there’s that I guess.
I’m going to do a one by one, detailed Top 20 starting tomorrow, but for now, here’s a list of ten songs that just barely missed the cut but still deserve the recognition.
"Thrift Shop" by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis
"Madness" by Muse
"Home" by Phillip Phillips
"New York" by Angel Haze
"Bad Religion" by Frank Ocean
"Monotony" by Willis Earl Beal
"Bad Girls" by M.I.A.
"Feed Me Diamonds" by MNDR
"Locked Out of Heaven" by Bruno Mars
"Va Va Voom" by Nicki Minaj
Look for my Top 20 in a little while!

Sad, but very, very true.
