I was obsessed with m.A.A.d City when it was released but I have not done much listening to Kendrick Lamar since then. His new album DAMN. was released this month and all of my friends were encouraging me to give it a listen. I was definitely not disappointed. HUMBLE. is my favourite song off of the album. I really enjoy listening to Trap music and this song has those trap elements coupled with quality rapping. I just really like listening to this song while I am walking or on the subway.
1 NIGHT is a song by new rapper Lil Yachty. For some odd reason, I love this song. It is actually quite bad, the voice is extremely monotone, the lyrics are not intelligent, but it is so catchy and funny that I cannot stop listening to it. The beat is also good so it doesn’t hurt to listen to it for that reason. If you want to laugh along to the lyrics and bad singing/rapping, then just watch the video which also doubles as a lyric video.
P.S. The music video is just as hilarious as his aesthetic!
Skrillex has been the motivating force on my workout playlist since 2011. I love the fast paced beats, the lack of words, and the fact that it sounds like two transformers attacking each other. Lately, I have been including some hip-hop/rap/trap music into my workout playlists in addition to my EDM selections. I discovered Wild for the Night just a couple of weeks ago and it has become one of my go to songs for the gym.
Wild for the Night takes the vocals of A$AP Rocky and combines them with the beats of Skrillex. Its like a Dub-Trap fusion song. It really is good and catchy and great for any workout.
