Can't wait to see AraabMuzik kill it tonight on the MPC alongside with Flosstradamus & others in company. It's been a few months since I've been to a live show, but I'll be ready for this one. If you don't have tickets yet, there should be some left so jump on it ASAP if you're trying to go (get tix here).

In case you haven't heard it yet, go check out AraabMuzik's recent free mixtape, For Professional Use Only, after the jump...

Day 316: Today's Mood - Relax to some Nosaj Thing x Toro Y Moi

Nosaj Thing and Toro Y Moi are an amazing duo on this collaboration. I feel like they were meant to make music together as their styles mix so well. The combination of synth sounds with the soft finger-snapping and vocals make it one of those tracks that can put you to sleep.

Toro Y Moi will be performing at the Fonda Theater this weekend for all those in LA, which I might have to go see. In the meantime, I'm going to get a bit more familiar with his music.

Check out a cool track by Toro Y Moi after the jump...

Day 315: Kendrick Lamar x Drake with "Poetic Justice" (Music Video)

"If I told you that a flower bloom in a dark room would you trust it"
- K-dot

This has got to be my favorite song from Kendrick Lamar's recent album, GKMC, featuring Drizzy. I think this is my 3rd blog post about this song but whatever.. it's that dope. That Janet Jackson sample got me hooked too.

Gotta support the dynamic duo from Toronto, The Airplane Boys. They have such a unique vision & style with their music, fusing up-tempo hip-hop with new generation types of sounds and beats. I really like the direction they are going with this mixtape. Very artistic and full of energy.

Drake has pretty much perfected the formula for catchy phrases and hard drums. So, so catchy.

Day 312: A very inspiring bball documentary - "10,000 Hours" (Video)

Episode 1:

This is a really interesting bball documentary that caught my attention, which is about two young Asian ballers from the Bay Area who put themselves through intense workouts to improve their game in hopes of one day of getting into the NBA. Yeah, it looks like they have a long journey ahead but the takeaway is this: it's all about realizing what your dream is no matter what people say and what's stacked against you. At the end of the day, you'll never find out if that dream was possible w/o putting in the work & being fully dedicated in becoming better. That means never giving up and never losing focus.

I love playing the game of basketball even though I'm not that great, but after watching this documentary I'm determined to find ways to work on my game and maintain my body in good bball shape. I wish I could have their coach put me on the right track, or I might just have to move back to the bay for a little bit and find him, haha.

I would've never found out about this if it wasn't for one of my bball homies, so s/o to J.Cov for showing me this one. He helped out with Episode 3 so check that out. More episodes after the jump...
