Summer time is here man, which means no school, beach parties, babes and booze, and still jobs if you have em so yeah. But no matter where you are, you can’t escape the intensity of the all everywhere SUMMER JAMS. 2013 is nothing next to 2012, what with your Call Me Maybe’s and all, but there is some jams for sure, and I’m bout to drop a select few out of my just finished SUMMER JAMS 2013 Playlist (pretty much the ones with the coolest videos).
RICH HOMIE QUAN – TYPE OF WAY
This shit is a fuckin problem. Rappers have been trying to mix singing in raps and not sounding soft as fuck for a few years now, and Future kind of had it, and Kevin Gates has it but isn’t this catchy, so this might end of being the blueprint for sing-rap for years to come. Even if “Rich Homie Quan” ends up being another Mims or J-Kwon. The best part is that its so vague that it has to be about not feeling ANY type of way. If you have any feeling whatsoever you are fuckin up. Brilliant. A+
Bloc Party – Ratchet
If you’re into British indie rock, you’re probably familiar with Bloc Party and they been solid for years. But nothing’s better than when a solid band releases an extra ridiculous party jam because they’ve run out of fucks to give. This is one of the best of the best of those. Also fucking ridiculous video thanks to crazy genius Cyriak from those weird cow videos. I want to do coke and acid now. A+
Disclosure – When A Fire Starts To Burn
Disclosure filled the void in my summer when Daft Punk decided to drop an easy listening record for dads. Yeah that’s all fine and nice and I like that song with Pharrell, but where’s the bangers man? Luckily I found this album, with a very high banger percentage. And this sick as fuck video. I think the message might be ‘religion is magic’, but I all I know is I fucking love it, especially the cute little cat =^.^=. A+
Pusha T – Numbers on the Board
Usually I like to keep a SUMMA JAMZ playlist heavy on the posi vibes and fun sing along jams, but you always need a couple grimey ass bangers to really take the shit to another level. Also this summer has been pretty low in Grade A pop jams :/. But Pusha T probably dropped his most accessible song yet in the form of a grimey banger with a ridiculous bass pounding beat. Production by Kanye West, and even tho Yeezus is a little too weird to be on here, this shit is the right vibe for cruising and throwing slushies at nerds. A+
Action Bronson – Strictly 4 My Jeeps
Action Bronson is an Albanian overweight really short rapper from Queens with a red beard who used to be a gourmet chef and sounds a lot like Ghost Face Killah. Now on paper that doesn’t make sense, but dude has released like five great mixtapes in two years and drops this banger right in time for summer, completely with a Grade A video and Riff Raff cameo. Just roll with it man, this shit is fuckin massive, Harry Fraud always do it well too. A+
Those are just some of them, here’s my full playlist if you don’t want to think and just take my word for it. (Pro-tip: Google youtube video downloader for your browser and get it together in like five minutes)
Now get out there and make your own before summer is over! cause fall is for leaves and cute sweaters, not bangin jams at barbeques.
