What am I listening to right now? Listen here! #2

No Make Up/ Kendrick Lamar: The beat is initially what lured me into the song... The soft rock chorus gives it an interesting twist. Loving Kendrick Lamar right now!

Gon' Be OK/ Lil B: The song opens with Obama's voice and his speech on "change." Sets the tone for inspiration. Great beat with the incorporation of the piano and wind instruments. I don't know much about Lil B, but this song put me on him.

Finer Thangs/ Pimp C, Slim Thug, Brooke Valentine: I just love the beat of this song. Lyrics, okay. Good to hear from Pimp C. and Slim Thug.

T.I. ft. B.o.B/ We Don't Get Down Like Y'all: Catchy song. Not the best T.I. song in a lyrical sense, but the collab with B. o. B. is dope!

J. Holiday/ Freakin' You: This is my sexy song of the day. I hear flashbacks to "Bed" in this song... that was the r&b anthem a couple of years ago! It's good to hear from J. Holiday again. "Keep your heels on, toes up to the chandelier while I enter your stratosphere..." WHOAAAAAAAAA!

Tory Lanez/ Violins: Now we have my Tory Lanez song of the day. I have a lot of respect of the young and talented. I appreciate the fact that his songs are very multidimensional. Whether it's with the beats, or his ability to rap and sing in the same song. His lyrics in this song are clever.

Cory Gunz/ Outta My Mind: I love listening to Cory Gunz' voice. He has such a unique sound. This song has crazy lyrics. It gets you pumped. He's one of the better artists in YMCMB, in my opinion.

It Ain't Over Till it's Over: This song just brings back good memories... Mary J, Fabo and Jadakiss. I love the collaboration. I hear trademark sounds from each of the artists.

Gangsta of Love: Yelawolf and Cyhi. It goes hard. Explicit though. I'm not a big fan of songs with too many bad words. It's distracting to me. But this track is tolerable.
