Life happens. Between work and all the other obligations you have, it can be easy to just rotate the same songs and playlists over and over and over again. Here's some situations you might currently be encountering with new music selections to plug in instead of the same ol' stuff.
iF: You need a new workout tune that makes you want to run through a wall then rip out the heart of your coworker that still makes "TPS reports" jokes ...
THEN try: "Heart Attack American" by The Bronx
You get 12 seconds of humanity before the piercing scream of lead singer Matt Caughthran should absolutely decimate your previous personal best dead lift and/or cause you to beat someone to death with a BOSU ball.
IF: You just got fired from ___________ (insert unoriginal Groupon spinoff daily deal website here) and you're thinking of getting your "Breaking Bad" on but the closest experience you've had with drugs is that one time you took too many antihistamines ...
THEN: listen to Master P's "Ghetto D"
This is basically a 4:37 TED talk about how to make crack and what to do when you start doing it. Should put you in the game something proper. Good luck!*
(*Note: RedEye does not recommend that people become crack dealers. It's totally about pills now, anyway.)
IF: you're looking for a song that reminds you of Juvenile's "Back that Azz Up" because sometimes, you know, you just want to twerk something after a hard day at the office ...
THEN: try: 2 Chainz "Used 2"
Released last year, this sleeper jam provides 125 percent of the Mannie Fresh thump you're used to (see what I did there?).
IF: you need a new song to declare your affection to your sweet baboo, but still want him/her to know they're going to catch a dislocated hip the next time you make love ...
THEN: try "This D***" by Tee Flii
Remember to stretch beforehand!
IF: you want to pregame, but recently relocated from Houston/Atlanta/New Orleans/Baton Rouge/a correctional facility and are tired of hearing your friend's playlist he made for homecoming in 2004 with mad Chingy on it ...
THEN: try this playlist:
It's a bona fide Power Hour filled with the Southern rap classics (with some Chicago and NYC flavor) you need to drink way too much and end up either passing out before it's time to leave or doing that weird drunk-guy zombie-eye move before you fall asleep in a booth at the bar.
