(31) Days of Good//12.29.16

One of my favorite discoveries of the year, this record is great start to finish with a slurry if features, with one of the standouts being a guest appearance from 90s R&B crooner Craig David.

Only Kanye could pull off such an erratic release of a record, and then change it however many times…I think there were at least 5 versions of The Life of Pablo. Kanye might have lost his mind by the end of the year, but he did leave us with a few great tracks, Wolves being one of my favorites.

♩ Kanye West – Wolves [from The Life Of Pablo]

Every fan of 90s era hip-hop was salivating for this one once it was announced. In the same year we lost Phife Dawg, we got a long awaited release from a crew I didn’t think would ever make music again.

One of the most unique artists in popular music, and if she wanted to be as big as Taylor Swift she could be…she can craft a pop song as well as anyone…she just chooses to not play it straight.

It’s crazy to see an artist who has continually been atop the pop charts fooling the mass music listening audience into loving straight up f@$k music. The Weeknd is the modern master of baby making music. This is another vibed out track from the man who redefined today’s R&B landscape; examining fame, drugs, and the music industry as a whole.
