My friend was in town that weekend and she is now into hip hop which is crazy because that was never her thing. She introduced me to Silento's Watch Me; it is the worst best song. All weekend that damn song was in my head and I have been whipping it ever since.
It had me thinking about my music taste and how it really hasn't evolved much since college. I guess you could say I am into Indie music with a little bit of house/electronic/reggae/hip hop. Honestly, it is 95% Indie Rock. Ugh. I love Beck, Jack White, Coldplay, Kings of Leon, Jenny Lewis and the list goes on. I was listening to SZA who is awesome but she needs to release some new music soon, please.
I need music to pump me up and I just can't do too much of hip hop/rap like I used to. I am not into the use of the "n" word. I just don't get it. With that being said, I am going to get a little into reggae. A really good friend of mine suggested some people: Albarosie, Damian Marley, Fidel Nadal, Gentleman, I Wayne, Richie Spice, Echo Sound System, and J Boog. I only have listened to a couple of the bands, jamming out to J Boog now and I am digging it. It's sexy and full of some good beats.
So this is a weak posting, light and airy. The next entry will probably be longer as I plan on talking about being Black in America from my perspective. I ordered Ta-Nehisi Coates' "Between the World and Me" and I anticipate it being a really, really good read. Be on the lookout as I will dig into my review of the book and my own experiences.
