[mix] (31) Days of Good: 2009

31days2009

As I prep #31days2016, I find myself exploring the tunes from past (31) Days of Good. It seems counter productive when i’m writing about the best new music of the year, but listening to old favorites seems to motivate me more. A few weeks ago, Brendan and I revisited the early blogspot days of Concrete Opinions and 35mmBeats on Revolutions Per Minute and had a blast. So, as we approach the “best of season”, i thought it would be nice to share my old (31) Days of Good playlists. 

Enjoy.

CS2773912-02A-BIG

A leader in the UK Grime scene for sometime now..Skepta is on the verge of completely blowing up with major cosigns from the likes of Drake. Skepta is a fully formed MC, label head, and producer who seems poised to carve out his name in the world of hip hop.

the-weeknd-new-album-beauty-madness1

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.

♩ The Weeknd – Tell Your Friends [from Beauty Behind The Madness]

(31) Days of Good//12.12.15

kanye-west-so-help-me-god

If I was a professional athlete this would be my hype music. The aggression of this song sounds like Yeezus meets grime…I’m very curious to see what SWISH will sound like.

♩ Kanye West ft. Theophilus London, Allan Kingdom & Paul McCartney – All Day [single]

1443742798_bc6c39b3788dbf2d495075e2b94cf549

I cannot get enough of this song…aside from Adele’s “Hello”, this has to be the most covered/talked about song of the year…this version is so good that I like it much better than the original. 

Erykah Badu – HOTLINE BLING BUT U CAINT USE MY PHONE MIX [from BUT U CAINT USE MY PHONE]

glass animals ft joey badass_600

It only makes sense that a smooth British band signed to Dr. Dre’s label would collaborate with some hip hop artists.

♩ Glass Animals &Joey Bada$$ – Lose Control [single]

[theproera.com] + [glassanimals.eu]

 

Freddie-Gibbs-Shadow-Of-A-Doubt-640x640

One of the only rappers today still doing 90s style gansta rap, and it doesn’t sound dated from Mr. Gibbs. This guy can rap, and he could have gone the major label route but chose to keep things small and do things his way…which I love

♩ Freddie Gibbs – 10 Times (ft. Gucci Mane & E-40) [from Shadow of a Doubt]
