This is one of my favorite songs from the Grand Theft Auto V soundtrack. Nothing beats rolling through the streets of Los Santos putting in work as this blasts through your speakers. Today’s get crunk playlist begins with this gem from The Game featuring Rick Ross and 2 Chainz.
In the last few weeks, I’ve seen more than one Uber driver lamenting the way Uber fare drops are negatively impacting their ability to earn money while driving for the popular service.
Sometimes you need a song that combines the slow wine aesthetic of dancehall reggae and the grittiness of hardcore street rap. I am getting all of that right now from this DJ Khaled produced track. I got my gun on me!
I have been working on making sure I get enough water in every single day. It is a lot harder than you might think, but I believe I am mastering this new skillset.
I’ve decided that I am going to write
a post each day that Amber Rose posts new pics on Instagram a series of posts dedicated to Amber Rose and her Instagram account. You mad, or nah?
I consider this a part of my job as an information curator. You are welcome.
Dear Amber Rose,
Yesterday you posted some pictures on Instagram, and the Internet collectively lost its mind. You are so beautiful, Amber. What did we do to deserve you?
For the record, yesterday was not my first time noticing you, but it was the first time I felt compelled by something within me to share your beauty with the world.
You are everything.
Have you ever seen Harlem Nights? Remember that scene where Della Reese is describing Sunshine?
That’s who you are, Amber. You are our sunshine. We cannot get enough of you. We want to bask in your glory at the risk of being burned by your hotness.
I hope you keep blessing us with these gifts, because we stand here ready to receive.
And good lord, do we appreciate it.
Metro plans to add cellular and WiFi service in some of the underground stations. This is huge! I am an almost daily user of the LA subway system, and my one lament is the lack of cellular or WiFi services underground.
7th and Metro Center Station in Downtown LA
Wi-Fi will be accessible at station platforms but not in a moving train, Fischer said. Uninterrupted cellular service will be available from the street to the platforms to inside moving trains, he said.
via Los Angeles subway will get WiFi, cellular phone service
We all know that Tupac Shakur was a special human being. My heart melts watching him perform “Keep Your Head Up” acapella in a classroom full of students. This video has made it’s way around the Internet and back again, but I’m sharing it anyway. Enjoy.
Crooked I’s “Everythang” is the perfect combination of West Coast Gangster Rap and Twerk anthem, at least in my opinion. You can get crunk to it, and you can shake your ass to it. I do both.
I’m here for our West Coast rappers because as I’ve said before in various spaces, they make their music for US. The fact that people everywhere else enjoy the music as well is just bonus points in my opinion.
So now enjoy the lyrical mastery of “Everythang” and thank me later.
When you’re done being ratchet, check out the protest song he made called “I Can’t Breathe” complete with a video showing scenes from protests and the death of Eric Garner. Power visual imagery to say the least.
