My heart is like a marching band…


  • Outkast featuring Sleepy Brown & Scar : Morris Brown 

“Music makes the world go round
Where it goes (where it goes)
Ya’ just don’t know (ya just don’t know)
My heart is like a marching band
Im a fan in the stands
Yes I am and Im hollerin’ hey baby
Sayin hey baby”  -Scar

Did that get your heart going? The woodwinds, brass, and of course the MARCHING PERCUSSION also known as the DRUMLINE. Yeah! Maybe a little Busta now? Wish he was cleaner though…

We like it a little dirty (minus the nigga and bitch, yeah, I try to meet people where they are, but yes, it can be hard to weed through the negative)

  • Busta Rhymes : Dangerous

  • Mos Def : Ghetto Rock 

Gotta love him and his partner…

  • Talib Kweli featuring Seu Jorge : Favela Love

Keep the heartbeat jumping (this is for the rapper in all of us)…

  • Wu Tang Clan featuring Cappadonna : Triumph 

You want to hear a little of the new school? Ok then. Don’t jump to conclusions, be sure to listen to the lyrics…

  • Lupe Fiasco : Bitch Bad

“Just like that, you see the fruit of the confusion
He caught in a reality, she caught in an illusion
Bad mean good to her, she really nice and smart
But bad mean bad to him, bitch don’t play a part
But bitch still bad to her if you say it the wrong way
But she think she a bitch, what a double entendre”  -Lupe

And Old Skool still proves to be better than most of the new. I stay in this lane…

“Excuse me, my name should be on the guest list!”

  • De Le Soul featuring Redman: Oooh 

The last set of a good party brings us closer together! Smoothness…

  • Pharcyde : Passin’ Me By

  • Janet Jackson : That’s the Way Love Goes

  • Buju Banton : Champion

  • Beenie Man Featuring Mya : Girls Dem Sugar

  • Shabba Ranks eaturing Maxi Priest : House Call 

  • Wayne Wonder : No Letting Go 

  • Bilal : White Turns to Grey

  • FKA Twigs : Papi Pacify

Friday nights are great, and so are Sundays, Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays! Everyday is wonderful.

That’s all I got for now. Can we make a musical masterpiece?

Peace and blessings,
