What up y’all, hope you have been having a good week? With this new release Friday being slow for new projects, it has reminded me that breaks are necessary. It is okay to take some time to yourself to enjoy the moments with your family and friends, or simply take time for your self.

Don’t worry, I still have music to talk about this week; it’s just in these moments of slow down I have realized taking a break is good for unwinding, and relaxation. If you have free time or have a slow down in your normal workload, I want to remind you and me that it is okay to have a day of peace. Take your time and have fun this weekend, peace.

Pharrell – Cash In, Cash Out

Black Thought – Because

Black Thought of the legendary group The Roots has released another single “Because”. The song features Joey Badass, Russ, and Dylan Cartlidge alongside production from Danger Mouse. These singles come in advance of a collaborative album that Black Thought and Danger Mouse have been working on for the past year.

Kid Cudi – Do What I Want

I have to say Kid Cudi seems to be having fun with music with the release of his latest song “Do What I Want”. The infectious hook , “And I feel like I can do what I want/ Livin’, livin’, livin’, livin’, I’ma do what I want,” reminds you of a Three 6 Mafia chant and will definitely have you repeating it over and over anticipating when the “Day and Nite” rapper will release his new project.
