One Of My Summer Playlists

So first of all I feel as though I need to explain the title of this blog just a little. I say “One of,” because let’s be honest, I make playlists ALL the time. To me, there is no ‘one’ summer playlist or party playlist, there are thousands of playlists for every season of life, sad, mad, in love, indifferent, chill, tired, the list goes on and on.

This playlist I am going to share in particular, is one I have been meaning to make for awhile. I say that because recently (and by recently I mean the last couple of months) I have been obsessed with a lot of RnB and kind of jazzy alternative music. For example, Steve Lacy, Rex Orange County, Cosmo Pyke, Mike Edge, then for the more RnB Noname, Ravyn Lenae, GoldLink, Kali Uchis, SZA and Thundercat. So basically, I have listened to the same songs, and genre for awhile, and I miss my other music.

This playlist features raw beats, meaningful lyrics, a soulful kind of rap (my favorite kind). I’m talking Dr. Dre, Snoop Dog, Ice Cube, the Roots, Kendrick Lamar, Kanye West, Domo Genesis, Anderson .Paak and a few others. These artists are some of my favorite, and I think they are definitely some of the best in the music industry. I also included a couple of new songs and new artists that I am really into right now.

So here is the list of all the songs on the playlist I so cleverly titled, “Cool”
