So this weeks Wednesday Weekly is coming at you a little earlier than normal, because I know you all need a little CRUNK JUICE in your life this week and I DO WHAT I WANT (lol). These songs bring back memories of High School and College that I will never forget. I have NO IDEA how more people didn’t die after listening to these songs; Some are so angry, lol. I was listening to this soundtrack at work yesterday and wanted to curse out EVERYBODY who looked at me sideways. So if you just need some “eff it” music for the day, a reason to “walk it out” or “2 step”, or you just feel like twerking in your office chair, this is the playlist for you!
Ok if you haven’t figured this out already, I am kind of a music head…kind of and I just like sharing music with others. Most of the time my tastes don’t line up with whoever I’m sharing stuff with because I try to push the envelope to get people to open up their mind to different styles.
One of my favorite new releases of the year!
Leikeli hails from New York and dons a ski mask pretty much 24/7 making her that more interesting to me. She’s so creative, and I can guarantee you that you’ve never heard anyone like her in todays rap game. “Wash & Set” is an awesome piece of work. You can tell Leikeli is all about loving the skin she’s in, being a woman and being f**king unapologetic about it.
Tracks to make sure you check out:
“Braids tuh’da flo(w)”
“Wash & Set”
The soft silk of hope
Drapes my heart
Like fresh sheets on bare legs
wrapped in the scent of cautious optimism,
Like the subtle scent of your favorite detergent.
As the sunrises, reminders of new days and
New beginnings, fill your soul.
And just like how you forget and then remember how
the faintness of soft, clean fabric
feels like a breath of fresh air;
Gentle and coy,
Such is the first touch of fragile hope.
