Welcome to Volume 7 of the most wave worthy playlist ever…To Dylan, Love Stoney. Bite on in to this absolutely insane blend of melodies to submit, submit, submit to!
Kendrick Lamar – “HUMBLE.”
I know I tend to stick to throwbacks like The Revival for the TDLS playlist but holy Foley…this is the Kendrick I love. He shines on the track, waxes that ass and sits everyone down.
Jetpack Jones – “On Time”
On this Don Diestro produced track Jetpack reminds all that “everything happens on its’ own time…when it’s supposed to.” A slick reminder to not let that confidence of yours to get shook and things will happen as they should. If you keep your head down you never know what you’ll miss.
Nina Simone – “Feeling Good”
If you haven’t been watching Legion on FX then I can’t help you. Or your confidence. Aubrey Plaza is absolutely brilliant, like Mark Henry fake retirement speech brilliant. So catch the show, get feeling good. Enjoy the Aubrey dance video and check out the Spotify playlist for the original version of “Feeling Good” by Nina Simone.
Wale – “The Girls On Drugs”
Insecurity breeds lack of confidence, or is it vice versa. I can’t tell them apart like the Usos. Ever so introspective Wale speaks on the hunger that some females show when wanting to be seen…heard…loved.
“Let me tell you about the women I be chilling with,
Told me nobody love her, that’s why she cut her wrist,
Not close enough for the hospital but cut it close,
That’s why she want to get high cuz she be feeling low,
Told me pour me a vodka, pill and little smoke,
So I could numb her insides and we will never know”
Find your inner confidence, find your light, stay humble and listen to To Dylan, Love Stoney right here on the Spotify playlist!
Why are there “3 i’s to my alumnis”? What is hiiiPower? Does this involve hiiiFlyer Rob Van Dam?
The advent of hiiiPower was given birth by TDE’s own, Ab-Soul. According to Kendrick Lamar, in an interview with hiphopdx.com, hiiiPower is much greater than it appears:
“Hiiipower: the three i’s represent heart, honor and respect. That’s how we carry ourselves in the streets, and just in the world, period. Hiiipower, it basically is the simplest form of representing just being above all the madness, all the bullshit. No matter what the world is going through, you’re always going to keep your dignity and carry yourself with this manner that it don’t phase you. Whatever you think negative is in your life. Overcoming that and still having that self-respect.”
Ever since I heard the first song of this playlist I was hooked like the Mandible Claw in Triple H’s grill. Without further ado I bring to you the 6th volume of To Dylan, Love Stoney: hiiiPower.
Kendrick Lamar – “hiiiPower”
The blueprint for hiiiPower! A wise man (yes, Kendrick) once said…”build your own pyramids, write your own hieroglyphs”. How does that resonate with you? Are you following your own path or just following the path laid out in front of you by others? Watching Iron Fist this reminds me of Joy Meachum, would she be at Rand if her family didn’t push her that way? I don’t think so.
Isaiah Rashad – “Wat’s Wrong” ft Kendrick Lamar & Zacari
Isaiah is one of the fresher TDE acts but dude just hits it out of the park everytime and his bars keep pace with the other great acts in TDE. Just take a listen and tell me you don’t want more. Up and coming like Cien.
Wale – “Keep It Moving” ft Ab-Soul & Magazeen
Although you won’t find this track on the Spotify playlist (see below), the whole Festivus album by Wale is James Worthy of a download, big game. This particular track features back and forth bars by Wale and Ab-Soul with a delightful last verse by legend Magazeen. What are you waiting for? Keep it moving and listen already!
Schoolboy Q – “Birds & The Beez” ft Kendrick Lamar
My favorite Schoolboy Q song. Birds & The Beez hits hard with more bromance than Breeze and Fandango. Q goes in with the realism that is life on the street and what that could mean to his family and how he recognizes that life is wrong…but it’s survival. Kendrick comes in to remind Q that all he wants his for him to succeed for his family. “Blue pill, red pill, choose now…birds or the beez”.
I sincerely hope that music helps you someway in life and reminds you of what you are capable of. Thanks for listening to the 6th installment of To Dylan, Love Stoney. Check out the hiiiPower of the Spotify playlist right herrreee…
Always forward, moving ahead. My memory isn’t hateful, I’m just too focused on right now and moving forward.
I do remember the important moments though, like wrestling….unlike Goldberg who absolutely forgot how to wrestle.
With that being said…let’s get to some jams that express just being of the mindset to push through and ride on out in life…like you are actually LIVING.
Bob Marley – “Keep On Moving”
Maybe it’s 2 volumes too many to NOT have some Marley. Push through the negative energies and get to your life the way you want to live it.
Kendrick Lamar – “Ab-Soul’s Outro” ft Ab-Soul & Terrace Martin
Section.80 by Kendrick Lamar may just very well be my favorite EP of all time. No lie. Most of it will find it’s way onto the new Spotify playlist…in due time.
Ab-Soul absolutely waxes his life illuminating poetics on the outro – duh, thus the name of the song. Anybody else miss Big V’s poems? I know i do.
Just really listen to the song and what is being said is what I’m trying to say. It’s beautiful with bars like this:
“What’s your life about, enlighten me, is you gonna live on your knees or die on your feet? Take out that student loan and pay off your college degree, and do exactly what you see on TV.”
Fortunate Youth – “Long One”
In life and wrestling sometimes you just have to suck it up knowing that it will be a long, strange trip to get to where you want to be. Live that journey knowing you aren’t alone.
Unlike Baron Corbin.
Wale – “The Power”
The closer of volumes…Wale. “The Power” puts the power back inside you with a verbal slam. Or TJ Duckett in his prime. How you doin?
Reminder to follow the Spotify playlist to get the complete To Dylan, Love Stoney experience!
Be good, live good, do good.
