So I was chillen with the fellas at Dirt's crib for his birthday (Happy Birthday brotha) and Che was DJ'in like he usually does. And for the record I effin LOVE when Che DJ's cause I feel he and I have very similar taste in music. So "Sexes on Fire" by Kings of Leon comes on and I lost my cool, I got up, started singing along pretending to be the lead singer performing the song, Perse was pretending to be the drummer, Che pretendin to be the Base player, it pretty much turned into Karaoke lol.
Lemme tell ya somethin about me, if you went through my iPod I think you'd even look at me different. I have such a vast collection of Genres, Artist, and a song to cater to someone from any and all different walks of Life. So stuff like that gets me hype. From AFI, to Lindsay Lohan, to Lenni Williams to Jay-Z to Rick James. I got it all.
See Hip-Hop is my favorite genre, and chances are it always will, but I feel the people of my generation have forgotten about those days in the living room when their parents were kindly being asked: "Let's Groove Tonight" by Earth, Wind and Fire" Same with new music that isn't Hip-Hop. See there's nuttin wrong with Drake and Gucci Mane, but there's so much more music out there that I'm sure you don't know of and might actually like.
So with that said, I wanna share a few of my favorite pop alternative joints with ya in hopes that ya lend an ear to something other than the 7 song rotation on Hot 97:
"Tonight's Today" by Jack Penate
"Send it off to the Universe" by Samantha James
"Ruby" by Kaiser Chiefs
"Electric Feel" by MGMT
"Sexes on Fire" by Kings of Leon
Check these out with an open mind folks, I know they are different to some of you, but sometime a difference is needed...
