I’m pretty sure I had something super insightful to say last night right as I was about to fall asleep, but I was too lazy/unsober to get up and make note of it….That really pisses me off, you know? I need to carry/sleep with a tape recorder so I can “note to self” like Norm McDonald and remember shit to write/talk about.
Anyway, I do remember this morning, and I was thinking about discipline on the way to the bus stop. I have no idea why, but looking back, I wonder if this might have anything to do with my hangover on the way to work…Anyway, I was just thinking about how much discipline it takes to be non violent. And despite what Nas says in his book of rhymes, Gandhi was no fool even if it seems as though the Machiavellians are the ones always getting ahead. Could you imagine what this world might be like had there been no Ghandi or Martin Luther King to provide some balance opposing those who believe it takes “the occasional need for the methodical exercise of brute force, deceit, and so on” (wikipedia) to accomplish their goals? Their ideas will never die and their accomplishments will forever give idealist like myself hope for the people.
Anyway, I guess I‘ve just been on this anti-“hard” tip for a minute. And well the opposite of hard is soft. And since I’m not really into being all hard and shit anymore, that must mean I’m Chris Bosh soft, right? So maybe I am kinda, but shits really not that black and white. Since college though, I have been all about the peace and love (how can they say marijuana is a bad thing?). Actually, always been about the love, just catching up with the peacefulness lately. That’s why RnB has always been one of my favorite genres. Not so much the faster RnB, mostly just the “slow jams.” Yeah, I love me some R. Kelly. This year was HUGE thanks in large part to the emergence of The Weeknd. Dude is gonna blow up big time. By the way, the top of this list is on some classic grammy type shit. I mean some of the best songs I’ve heard in yearZUH, let alone the first half of this one.
3. Frank Ocean – Novacane…..you gotta check the music video for this song. Really fuckin cool, especially how they visually describe the feeling of not having feeling (numb)
It’s Your Wifey’s Favorite Blogger! Music from Diddy/Dirty Money, Ciara, The Dream, YG, Brenton Duvall, Lil Wayne, Passion Pit, Bruno Mars + Reggae
So I use to download these DJ Ill Will R&B mixtapes and dude’s tag line was always (is still) “It’s your wifey’s favorite DJ!” Looking back (or reading back) it’s really not that funny, but he just said it in a really funny hype voice, and shit has always stuck with me. I guess that’s the point of a tag line though. Well done sir. My point is, I’ve never actually had a “wifey” that liked R&B music more than me….wait, let me start over. My point is, while these songs may be more ear pleasing to my female followers than most other songs I regularly post, that does NOT mean the fellas can’t enjoy some music to dance/juke/cuddle/poke to…too.
I rarely post songs I don’t like a lot. Almost never post a song I don’t like at all, unless it’s a huge name and I feel as though I should give my opinion. However, you may find a couple female friendly songs in this post that aren’t totally up to my liking. These next two jams off Diddy & Dirty Money’s “Last Train to Paris” definitely do not fall into that category. This some heat right here.

First of all this Ciara remix is nasty. Wayyyy better than the original, imo. Of course I’m diggin the piano. Ride it girl. And then this Dream shit has been out a while, but just in case you missed it. No wonder these two get along so well. I would also like to share that before curiosity quickly turned into disgust, I spent a day exploring the wonders of chatroulette. In one of maybe 4 conversations I had, I came across this dude and I could hear “Yamaha” playing in the background. Of course I recognized it and gave him shit right away for bumping The Dream in his dorm room while chatrouletting (?). But I actually ended up bullshitting with him for like 20 minutes bout music and basketball while he smoked a blunt and got ready to go out to the club…ohhhh college.

What’s funny is I think girls actually do really like this YG song. I’m not surprised though, I went to college. Small chance they may just not listen to the words though. Stupid shit like this takes some time to win me over…..I think I’m breaking though. (Side note – I just took another look for the dirty version and one of the first results was dude from thisis50 going off,“how the hell is it a g-mix if all I can find on the internet is clean versions.” ha.
