Seasons come and go, but music is forever ————————— As times change during the year, my music catalog typically goes through patterns. There’s always one or two albums I come back to per season, because they established a time in my past that reminds me of that season. In the winter, I listen to Late Registration by Kanye West, since at around that time a few years back I listened to it and it rekindled my interest in both Kanye West and music in general. In the spring, Nas’ Illmatic has encapsulated my bus rides during baseball seasons since my freshman year of high school, while songs like Halftime and Memory Lane rattle in my ears as I hear my friends yelling in the back of the bus. As the summer rolls around, Because the Internet by Gambino blasts from the speakers while waves crash in the background and I can still hear my summer friends yell for me to come in the water. And finally in the fall, Piñata by Freddie Gibbs and Madlib represents a time when my taste in music was again sparked, and evolved, as the leaves do in autumn. It, along with these other albums and many more ultimately led to me making this account. What are some albums that transport you to a specific season or time during the year?
Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik • This is OutKast's first studio album. First of all, name of the title is this one long word. I just wanted to say that. There are alot of chill songs on here. The hooks on here so catchy. The production on this album is great. I think both of Andre and Big Boi's lyrics flow are so nice, that it makes them the best hip hop duo of all time! This whole album is truly amazing and enjoyable. • Fav tracks: Players Ball, Southernplayalisticadillacmuzik, Ain't no thang, Call of Da Wild, Hootie Hoo • Rating: 9/10 • #kanyewest #mfdoom #outkast #kendricklamar #nas #jayz #tupac #biggie #eminem #jcole #joeybadass #rap #hiphop #music
