We’re all aware of the social injustice happening in America at the moment, in-fact it’s happening all over the world. I mentioned this song is my Autumn Playlist post recently but it’s important that it’s heard and the underlining message gets communicated. They speak on the unharmed victims that were brutally and racially killed by the cops, a problem that’s getting worse – to fix it, we have to face it.
“I am no prison commodity, not just a body you throw in a cell. For any reason, just to bother me. Just for you quota, so it’s rest in peace to Sean Bell. Sleep in peace Eric Garner (Sandra)”
Here’s a powerful performance by Usher, Bibi Bourelly & Nas of the single on Jimmy Kimmel recently.
For a clear audio
This was originally meant to be a New Music post but I kinda left it late, life got in the way. Sorry about that. Nonetheless, I’ve reflected back on my current playlist which is dated back to the last month or two, to more recently. It’s a mix of both UK & US so you may already have heard a few, but for the ones you don’t – they’re definitely worth downloading. I’ve been in a happier mood recently and I have this music to thank for it, making my biggest struggle in life (waking up early in the morning for work) slightly bearable.
Also; people been hittin’ me up with that ‘give me some tunes’ message so to make life easier, I’ll share.

PLUS the New Music videos posted previously
I feel like I should include Adele – Hello to this lol but I don’t wanna kill the vibe.
I’m so mad I didn’t do a summer playlist for you guys, mine banged. There’s sooo many more I could add to this and probably will but for now -enjoy. I’ll do a winter one soon.
After a few listens of the second documentary disc (Doc 2.5) – I can firmly say, it is my new soundtrack of the month. I wasn’t sure if The Game had the ability to make it consistent following the first but he completely proved me wrong. I hate to say this, but I think I prefer it to Dre’s Compton (remember I’m a 22 year old female so please don’t grill me).
Again, the album features a number of artists including Nas, Lil Wayne, Ty Dolla Sign and Schoolboy Q just to name a few. If we think realistically, you can tell the difference between 2 and 2.5. 2 was kinda warming us up, giving those more mainstream hype songs for the radio and if you thought it was good then just hear 2.5 my friend, which in my opinion is much better. Straight up lit. It’s deeper with more raw content, great lyrical substance – can argue it’s more serious but in a positive way cos he managed to still make it enjoyable to listen.
It’s a bit shorter than the first album with an 18 track-list (well 16 if you minus the skits) including some real cute songs such as Like Father Like Son, Life which samples Whitney Houston (one of my favs right now), Up On The Wall making me wanna turn up, and he got the hard-core shit like Gang Bang Anyway. A complete dope mix. I could honestly write a review on each track but instead I think you all should go cop that like actually BUY the album. It’s worth it – alternatively, stream it below.
I mean.. he could’ve scraped the odd song or two but it’s not like he releases music on a regular basis so let’s allow him please, man got excited to deliver something cohesive and you gotta rate him for that. He’s still relevant in the game (see what I did there) LOL I know you didn’t laugh but I did.
It would be just so rude of me if I didn’t wish the man mentioned below in the last post a very HAPPY birthday. Aubrey Drake Graham aka Drizzy has officially turned 29 today. I can’t deny that this artist from the 6 has made timeless hits, I’ve seen him 4 times and best believe there will probably be a 5th.
Blessing us with Thank Me Later, Take Care, Nothing Was The Same and If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late now becoming one of the best in todays hip-hop gen.
My sister is literally the biggest Drizzy fan, we love you.
P.s You might wanna check out his Instagram page today, he’s been posting the most cutest pics!
Here’s a little throwback
Man said “let me get you some red velvet cake” at the end. Na I’m done. DJ Khaled gotta be stopped. #AnotherOne
