Jam Of The Day: T-Pain

But somewhere along the way, somebody got it twisted. "People felt like I was using it to sound good," says T-Pain, in an interview that will air on All Things Considered. "But I was just using it to sound different.” 

After hearing him sing this live on WSHH today I just knew that I needed to post it asap. I have always been a T-Pain fan from his first album to his second "Epiphany" and the third "Thr33 Ringz". Yes, I too was just a little surprised at how amazing his voice is. I myself figured a while back that he had to have a great voice because he harmonized very well. He definitely showed up and showed out in this NPR Music Tiny Desk Concert. I am eager for the next album and a T-Pain features for sure. He SANG… yes SANG…. "Drankin' Patna" but then again he also sang the others as well. With our favorites hits such as "Bartender" and "Up  Down" T-Pain delivered and also showed his great personality through his music and without the music. This video made me oh so happy! I'm thankful to have the ability to watch such great artistry. Enjoy!

Jam Of The Day: Tink "Try Me" Remix

A Chicago Artist That Everyone Should Know and If Not Here I Give You


I'm from the Chi and of course I love music so I've definitely been following Tink for some time now. Not only can she flow but she can also sing her ass off. She is consistent and always delivers that greatness. A buddy of mine called me today and asked me had I remixed the "Try Me" joint yet in which I replied, "Nah". He then said that I should go check out Tink Remix to "Try Me" cause she killed it. Yes, she definitely did deliver that business per usual. She sang the chorus and laid them verses perfectly. The original song is from artist Dej Loaf who has taken over recently with that joint. Tink did her thang tho.

Jam Of The Day: Jagged Edge "Me That's Who" *Throwback*

"If it's gonna work in our way, And if it's gonna work in our favor

I'm not to blame, I'm not the enemy. Girl, I'm tryna save us, baby"

As I vibed out this morning with this song on repeat it just took me back to my younger years. I can remember hearing this song and falling in love with the sincerity within the melodic voices. Listening to their album, "Baby Makin' Project",in my then Kia Sephia living on the Northside of Chicago thumping this as loud as I could possibly get it.  Jagged Edge has plenty hits but this one does something to me. Happy Thursday!

Jam Of The Day: Hodgy Beats "Alone"


…… Because this is how I feel most of the time.
 Yet, I still push forward in faith knowing that more awaits….This jam was surely very suitable for today's melancholy state.

Jam Of The Day: Trey Songz x Chris Brown "Made Me" (Remix)

"Made Me" 

Trey and Chris dominated this project equally as they are both greats. These Virginia natives definitely provided that sexy business and laced this track. The way they tag team within the verse is amazing and very creative. I would like to hear this while out partying soon as this would have the summer jumping. Anyway, I cannot stop listening to this track as I already love the original song by rap artist Snootie Wild. There are a few awesome tracks from this duo mixtape "TRGAxBRZY" by Trey Songz and Chris Brown so check it out.

Jam of the Day: Kirk Franklin and God's Property "The Storm Is Over Now"

" I feel like I can make it, the storm is over now "

This is the song our class sung at our 8th grade graduation and it has forever been stored in my heart. With beautiful melodies and claiming the victory with very word this song can surely uplift you.
 Lately, I found myself humming and singing this beautiful tune by Kirk Franklin so I decided to share my energy.

***Life can for sure seem to break you down before it builds you up but the transformation speaks volumes. The goal is to simply find joy in your course through life and give thanks as you persevere. Be blessed.

Jam Of The Day: Tyler The Creator "IFHY"

I hate you…but yet I love you. The thin line! IFHY

Anyone who knows me personally knows that I love Tyler The Creator. For me he is a musical genius but he would have to come after Kanye of course. Artists that are able to direct their own music videos,  produce their own beats, rap on them while ensuring that track has substance, intricate transitions, shock factor, and realness are greats to me. Yes, there are many greats who are able to do the same without producing the track but for me this is a level up from just being a rapper/storyteller.  Not only is this video creative, weird/different, and creates a hell of a visual if you actually listen to the story he is telling its amazing. Tyler then switches up the beat and flow then proceeds to go complete ham at the end. I was in awe the entire time and had to watch it twice just so I could soak in the amazing feeling all over again. He kept my attention from the visual and pleased my ears with the bars. Sighs. Tyler just be my friend already now lol. Enjoy!

Jam Of The Day: Twista featuring Do Or die "Do You"

"23's like Jordan on the Escalade"

This joint took me back to my South Side Chicago living on King Drive days. I use to fall asleep to the radio as a soothing way to ease into my dreams. I remember this track on WGCI and I fell in love with Twista. He is definitely a great when it comes to a lyricist and Do Or Die just finesses the track oh so gracefully.  For some reason this song popped in my head earlier and I had to post it. Hope it vibes you out well too!

Jam Of The Day: Soul For Real "Candy Rain"

Throwback Sunday Jams

"My love, do you ever dream of. Candy Coated Raindrops?
You're the same, my candy rain"

Im taking y'all back to 1994-1995 with this one. Some day I'll be appreciated lol

My love, do you ever dream of
Candy Coated Raindrops?
You're the same, my candy rain

Have you ever loved someone
So much you thought you'd lied?
Giving so much of yourself
It seems the only way

Tell me what you want and I
And I will give it to you
'Cause you are

My love, do you ever dream of
Candy Coated Raindrops?
You're the same, my candy rain

My love, did you ever dream
That it could be so right?
I never thought that I would find
All that I need in life

All I want, all I need, now I know,
I found it in you, I found it in you
'Cause you are

My love, do you ever dream of
Candy Coated Raindrops?
You're the same, my candy rain

My love, do you ever dream of
Candy Coated Raindrops?
You're the same, my candy rain

New Music From Bad Milli: "Starve Mode" ** Snippet**

The Unveiling of A Queen :  BAD M I L L I

As the release of her debut mixtape, "MILLI The Unveiling", approaches she is growing out of that shell and finally speaking her mind beyond just normal conversation. Just a cool young lady that has been through many of the same struggles that many are facing now. Having the ability to thrive in this space where she has lost both parents and tends to turn to her music to release her frustrations. Also sometimes feeling like the lone wolf she unfortunately sticks out like a sore thumb as beautiful freckles invade her face's space. Her mixtape will indeed tell a story and it will offer the listener insight into the pain behind the oh so rare smile. Raised in Chicago she is now based in New York and finding her way through life with music, prayer and meditation. Feeling as if some listeners may get tired of waiting Milli has begun releasing snippets of songs to ensure the listeners that she is definitely working.  Just stick with the chick who just wants to live the rest of her life telling her story and helping others realize that they too can make it through the storm. Blessings to all who read this!
