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”
Favorite sound: stepping on autumn leaves.
Least favorite sound: text messages and phone calls not coming through.
The sound your heart/soul makes after finally listening to Sam Smith’s “Too Good at Goodbyes”: …
Puff Daddy & Mase, Brandy and Monica, Missy Elliott and Nicole Wray.
Those are names that come to mind when you think about the late 90s and early 00s Hip Hop. Who doesn’t remember jamming out to these songs when they played on the radio? Out here trying to avoid the DJ voiceovers because you were trying to record your favorite song on a cassette, and when they did mess up your song, you called back into the radio station to request the song later to try and record it again.
This week, I present to you!
Late 90s/Early 00s HipHop & RnB (Wednesday Weekly: Vol 5)
If you are not already familiar, my name is Malcolm and I am MORE than ecstatic to be back! Well, I guess here, I’m back but for the first time?
Just like the general population of the world, I like to think that I have a strong passion for music. I love the way it can make you happy, sad, how it makes you think, and even how it can even cause you to blank out and just “be”. If you understand what I’m saying.
With all of this said, I introduce you to one of my music series, I call “Wednesday Weekly”. Each week, I bring you a playlist following a specific theme that I’m sure will get your heads bobbing, and your feet tapping. This weeks theme includes all the songs your parents used to jam to in the house and at EVERY family gathering.
I hope to introduce you all to new music, REintroduce you to old music, and maybe just cause you a little less effort when you just don’t know what to listen to on certain days; so to all of my Spotify and Apple music users, I present to you, Da Family Cookout (Wednesday Weekly: Vol 4).
Peace and Grits!
P.S. – Feel free to check out all of my playlists under my account in both Apple Music and Spotify. I’m sure you’ll find something you like, and I’m constantly adding new songs to existing playlists.
