A little Ice Cube to cool down your Tuesday? Not so much. This is definitely not a cool down song. Here’s some classic late ‘90s hip hop you can put your back into.
Missy Elliot and the Notorious B.I.G. in one fell swoop? Okay! Here’s the Ultimate Rush for some classic ’90s hip hop. Happy Friday.
Time for some more Snoop? Hell yeah. Here’s Gangsta Luv for your Saturday.
So many songs, so little Red Flag. Here’s On the Highway for an adventure-filled weekend ahead.
Today’s SOTD is brought to you by Outkast. Here’s another fine summer song for y’all: So Fresh, So Clean.
Let’s start off this week with a song that captures my current summer mood perfectly. Here’s Coolio and Ooh La La. I’m feeling it!
Today’s SOTD is perfect for a Wednesday. It’ll ignite your day and push you right over into Thursday. Here’s Modeselektor featuring Flohio and Wealth.
May our ink flow and may our stories be told the way Snoop Dogg does it in this song. Here he is again with Round Here. And… go!
Here’s today’s writing incantation.
May we write for miles, until it’s suddenly dusk. May we read like words are food and we’ve been starving, lost for months in the jungles of Burma. And may we edit carefully.
Ever since I wrote “upside your head” in yesterday’s post I’ve had The Gap Band’s 1979 hit “Oops Upside Ya Head” stuck in my head.
Here’s a pimped up version of that song. Which brings me to one more incantation: may we write with the confidence of Snoop Dogg.
We’re clearly overdue for some classic ’90s hip hop. Here’s Mobb Deep and a song that never fails to give me chills. Filing this under survival for a survival-ridden day. Getting the rest of my sleeve shaded in today. Kids, a word of advice: don’t get your ink done in your 50s. According to my tattoo artist our pain tolerance decreases with age and I think I can testify to that… eep.
