Song (Album) of the Day:
#USee4Yourself – IDK
I came into today’s #NewMusicFriday with the expectation that Vince Staples new self-titled album would be my favorite of the week. While it was a solid project, IDK’s (formerly known as Jay IDK) #USee4Yourself absolutely blew me away. This is the type of album you listen to from Track 1 on without shuffling due to some great production and mixing and a story told throughout.
IDK brings the energy throughout and is able to switch up flows and sounds better than any rapper I have heard in a long time. My personal favorite songs are “PradadaBang ft Young Thug” and “Santa Monica Blvd.” Give IDK’s new album a listen and I guarantee you’ll quickly become a fan.
Positive Quote of the Day:
You should make something. You should bring something into the world that wasn’t in the world before. It doesn’t matter what it is. It doesn’t matter if it’s a table or a film or gardening-everyone should create. You should do something, then sit back and say, ‘I did that.’ – Ricky Gervais
What Makes Today Special?
The UK version of “The Office” premiered on BBC Two 20 years ago today. While I personally am not a huge fan of the UK version, the British version of the Office set the path for one of the greatest American sitcoms of all time to come into existence.
Michael Scott is one of the greatest TV characters of all-time, and Steve Carrell’s performance of him is also amongst the greatest of all-time.
Thank you, Ricky Gervais, for your comedic genius.
