Press Play ... Let It Ride.

Ms. E. is back with more dope for your ears. A great friend of mine is helping me bring the music to you in a better way, Chan-Lo.com will be packed full of goodies. However, for now peep the playlist, download the tracks, and transport to a happy place.

Keep Groovin'.
Peace. Love. Music.
1) "The Trip" and "The Extra Trip" - Wale
For an artist of his caliber, Wale is incredibly underrated. Both songs (which come on the hinge of his latest mixtape, More About Nothing) are so lyrically intrinsic that I had to listen close just to understand. Wonderful music.
2) "Devil In A New Dress" - Kanye West
Kanye crazy beat. Check. Yeezy spittin fire. Check. Dope is what they call this. Peep game.
3) "The Usual" - Trey Songz feat. Drake
The terrible twosome is back at it again on this, yet another leak, from Songz's upcoming album due to be released September 14th. The duo combine for a playful piece in which Songz addresses the public opinion regarding his sexually provocative lyrics. His reponse is laced with classic Trey-isms. As far as I'm concerned, if it ain't broke, don't fix it.
4) "Villematic" - J. Cole
I introduced Mr. Cole previously and my opinion has yet to waiver. This track is on heavy rotation and his words commandeer the beat. Very hard to accomplish. Done well by this young man.
5) "Only Girl (In the World)" - Rihanna
The first single off of RiRi's upcoming followup to Rated R, entitled Lost. This track is reminiscent of her previous hit, "Please Don't Stop The Music", in the fact that it exudes more of a techno/Euro dance vibe. Get your glow sticks ready. Aside from the track itself, Rihanna seems to be broadening her vocal range with this release. Certainly a different sound. Check it out.
6) "All I Want Is You (Remix)" - Miguel feat. Rick Ross and J. Cole
This record happens to be one of my favorites at the moment. Ricky Rozay give the track a bit more edge yet, the overall value remains the same. Check out both the original as well as the revamped remix and choose your favorite.
7) "Hard Times" - John Legend feat. The Roots
John Legend is back with the feel good music we are used to hearing from him. The combo with the legendary Roots gives this track a message for the masses. Be encouraged.
8) "I Think It's Over" and "Amazing You" - Ne-Yo
The King of the Pen is back with two tracks that convey polar opposite messages. The contrast was quite refreshing however, Ne-Yo has done it before. Would love to see something a bit more off the mark from him. Nonetheless, songs are good, classic Ne-Yo.
9) "Everyday Struggle" - Faith Evans feat. Raekwon
Music with a message is making a comeback and this is no different. Faith Evans lends her super star voice to this inspirational track. It's definietly a make you think piece.
10) "Check It Out" - Will. I. Am. feat. Nicki Minaj
Want to hear Nicki steal the show on someone else's record...again? Download the latest from the B.E.P. front man and see him slightly upstaged...In a good way.
11) "Take Me Away" - Jermaine Dupri feat. Johnta Austin
Great twist on the 80's track "Sailing" which has also been remade by the likes of N'SYNC and Avant. Wonderful cover.
12) "Follow Me (Like Twitter)" - Kevin McCall feat. Chris Brown
As first featured on Breezy's mixtape, In My Zone, this song seems to be resurfacing as a Kevin McCall joint. Has been one of my favorites so, I opted to put it on the list for your listening pleasure. Peep Chris's entire mixtape while you're at it.
Worth A Listen:
"Black and Yellow" - Wiz Khalifa
"Keep It 100" - Tank
"Pledge Allegiance to the Swag" - T.I. feat. Rick Ross
"Scratchy" - Trey Songz feat. Swizz Beatz
"Do You Get It?" - Kid Cudi
"Fireworks" - R. Kelly
Happy Downloading!
