This weekend proved to be pretty swell for me musically. First, there was the unanticipated Goo Goo Dolls concert at the rodeo (a whole ‘nother story), then I found Charles Hamilton‘s Well Isn’t This Awkward mixtape, as well as Blu‘s Her Favorite Colo(u)r mixtape. I also threw Theophilus London‘s This Charming Mixtape into rotation and had a nice little solo party.Ã‚Â At the gym, I got reacquainted with The Cool Kids…I really enjoy those guys.
What does this have to do with anything?Ã‚Â It’s good music.Ã‚Â From artists that aren’t mainstream yet.Ã‚Â Their creativity is in tact.Ã‚Â Their movement is strong.Ã‚Â And they’re all young and making their name in an oversaturated market.Ã‚Â I’m inspired to move forward with my movement.Ã‚Â Passion=purpose, yeah?Ã‚Â I’m so about to find a way to travel the world.Ã‚Â It also made me happy because hip hop, for me, was kind of stale for a while. I like this new energy.
A surprise for me was Ryan Leslie‘s new self-titled album.Ã‚Â I quite fancy a number of songs.
Charles Hamilton – “Neverland”
Blu – “Never Be Another Me”
Theophilus London – “Computer Love”
The Cool Kids – “A Little Bit Cooler”
Ryan Leslie – “How It Was Supposed To Be”
