I’m sure you all were watching the clocks every last move if any of you guys had school yesterday like myself, waiting for the bell to ring you away to FREEDOM. Well in the midst of midterms and this thing called life, I somehow found time to put together some songs that I figured would be dope to listen to over this beautiful spring break. If you’re lazing your week away somewhere tropical, I think you’ll find this compilation of songs extra enjoyable. Here’s a teaser track from the playlist, but if you want to listen to the whole thing, click below. xx -Cic

Posted by on December 23, 2013

Best Of hip hop big Jeffs 15 Best Hip Hop Tracks of 2013 With the mainstream sound shifting further towards hip-hop (or is it the other way around?) the way it has in 2013, it’s become quite a good climate for rappers. While this year has had its share of successes and rises to fame (see Chance The Rapper, Logic), though, it’s certainly had its share of disappointments. Read on to see my selections as the year’s best work in hip-hop.

Bass, Electronic, Playlists | What I’m Listening To

There’s a certain kind of legitimacy that comes with a statement like ”What I’m Listening To” that I think resonates the deepest. The ever so relatable truth of stocking a device with tracks only to replay a few, while constantly skipping over the rest like a nuisance. So here I thought it would make the most coherent sense to gather all the tracks I’m listening to lately, and present them all in one place.

 Well folks, it’s been real. Tomorrow, Sept 22, marks the official end of summer 2013. In honor of the change in season, I present to you the second installment of my very own Warm Air mixtapes. A mix designed to ease the transition of swimsuits to sweaters and piña coladas to pumpkin spice and peppermint mocha lattes. A mix to warm you up in the cool autumn breeze, to relive the sweet memories of the past few months, and keep your spirits up and motivated as you face challenges in school, work, and everyday life. So close your eyes, and let this mix take you back to that moment on the beach where you dug a hole in the sand with your toes as you watched the sun set, or when you indulged in the most amazing 4th of July BBQ of your life, or drove around recklessly with the top down and the radio up, or the night you watched an epic fireworks spectacle with your boo thang wrapped up tight in your arms.

Remember, just because the summer is over doesn’t mean the fun is. Oh no, 2013 can and will go out with a bang. With 3 months left to go, it’s time the real fun begins.

I’d also like to dedicated this mix to one of my most beautiful friends as she turns 21 today. Hope you enjoy this mixtape as you take your first legal swigs of alcohol today, take an extra big one for me <3

When it comes to summertime playlists, it’s a cutthroat battle for the ultimate, all-inclusive and trendiest compilation, so hear me out for a second. Allow me to introduce to you, Warm Air, a three-part series by yours truly that will coincide with the rise and fall of your sweet summer season. I present to you this first installment of my series on the first day of summer, appropriately, in hopes that you might enhance any which way you decide to spend your greatest allowance of sunlight with the shimmering sounds of some of my current favorite artists. This playlist in particular is for the moment you wake up when the possibilities for your day are limitless; the sun is sparkling everywhere from the leaves on the tree to the water in the pool and the hood of your new Bugatti. With a mimosa in one hand and your beach towel in the other, these tracks will inspire and motivate you to carpe the shit out of the diem. But what happens when the sun is hot, the babes are out and you’re ready to play? Stay tuned for volume 2, coming soon to a boombox near you…
