I’m baaaaaaaack! *Mase voice*. Did you miss me? 👀 I know I missed youuuuu. First, let me apologize🙏🏾. I know I said I would be here weekly, but I promise I was away for a good reason and you were always on my mind. 💚
What have you been on? Affirming the last 4 weeks have been transformative and prosperous as always. For me, last month was full of changes and new beginnings - everything that spring promises to be. During this time, I’ve explored new cities, places, and have felt so inspired by it all. Can I take a moment to shout out Daylight Savings real quick? 🌞This really has saved me. It’s the sun being out while I go on a walk in the evening for me🚶🏾♀️. I just might have to start a petition for us to keep our clocks here.
Now that we got that out of the way, I’m so excited to share all the things I’ve been working on in the next coming weeks. More to come on this, but first let’s catch up properly.
Here are a few things I’ve been up to and what I was listening to in the process.
African Video Club: For the last year, I’ve been working on the first drop from my new line African Video Club. This is what really had me away. I’m about to cry because it still doesn’t feel real typing this tbh. With this first release, I wanted to pay homage to the Nollywood, Nigeria’s film industry, and the films that made an impact in my life. If you haven’t or even if you have, pick up a shirt here. 🙏🏾
SZA - Blood Stain/T Shirt ( NNEOMA EDIT) - I’ve been experimenting with sounds recently. I’ll share some more experiments (maybe) but for now here is an edit of a SZA record. 👀
Maeta - Toxic ft. Beam - Have you pressed play? This has been in heavy rotation. *This is actually what I’m listening to as I type*.
Such A Fun Age: You and I know, we love a good book. I just started this and I’m already stressed out. This story will have you tense 2 chapters in. Let me know if you want to join the book club meeting for this.
The Void Playlist: The playlist is back! All new vibes and new music from Elhae, Joyce Wrice, and Saba.
Krxzy - Options: I’m just trying to find an anthem for summer 2021. In my quest to find it, I’m officially nominating this song to take the title this year.
Dezzie - Bad Ones: Sorry. I had to start off with an apology on this one. If you’ve been around me in the last couple of weeks, then you’ve heard this song one to many times. RIP to my speakers.
Coi Leray - Better Days -Okay this song isn’t new, buuuut the way I’ve played this song over 100 times in 48 hours, it might as well be.
After a year of loss, L.A.’s Black churches celebrate their second pandemic Easter - Yesss I’ve really been reading. Join me on another journey and peep the lasted article from a real one @KaylinHype.
As I said, it feels too good to be back here with you. I missed this for real. I hope you enjoy this week’s playlist, pick up a shirt, and dive into the songs shared. What have you been listening to? What have you been up to? While you think on that and let me know, you can find me here now every other Tuesday.
Talk soooooon 💚💚💚
