#30DayBlogChallenge - Day 1 - Playlist Shuffle #MusicIsMyLife

Day 1: Put your Google Play Music on Shuffle and list the first 10 songs...and how you feel about them!

Like I said in my last post, I have to put a little Willie Stylez twist on some of these Blog Challenge topics! I am an AVID Google and Android user, so I don't own an iPod (an iPhone 6 Plus, yes, but it's only used secondary to my Note 4), but I do listen to most of my music on Google Play Music (as well as on Rhapsody, Spotify, SoundCloud and Pandora).  So you can say... #MusicIsMyLife

Anyway, here is what Google Play Music came up with for me:

1. "That Ain't Me" Lil Wayne feat. Jay Sean (I Am Not A Human Being) ~ So this song wasn't one of my FIRST choices when picking up my headphones. But I really do enjoy the song, and the message. It's a strong cut from the I Am Not A Human Being album, and a song you can really jam too.

2. "I Ain't Thru (Remix)" Keyshia Cole feat. Nicki Minaj & Gucci Mane (Calling All Hearts) ~ I love Nicki, love Keyshia and well, me and Gucci, we can get along at time. I always find myself bouncing and jamming to this HOT TRACK! Definitely one of Nicki's best features in the beginning of her major career!

3. "Right Round" Flo Rida (R.O.O.T.S.) ~ I can actually jam to this track! I definitely don't tell to many people I keep some Flo Rida on my playlists, but no one can deny his music is a guilty pleasure! I think Ke$ha guest starred on this track, but my copy didn't mention.

4. "Download (Remix)" Lil Kim feat. T-Pain, Charlie Wilson, The-Dream & Soulja Boy Tell'em ~ What can I say, Uncle Charlie, T-Pain AND The-Dream on one track, with a hot 32 by the Queen B herself...oh and a (surprisingly decent) verse from ya boy Soulja! Yea, definitely a great recipe for a HOT TRACK! I love the classic feel of the Roger Troutman Computer Love track under the T-Pain AutoTune mastery!

5. "Supermodel Baby" Tyga feat. Gata (The Free Album) ~ OK, I can't win them all. Let's just say, Tyga is LUCKY that The Free Album was indeed free, or I'd have demanded a refund! Shoot, to tell the truth, with the wack Autotune and even wacker lyrics on this track, I think I do want to demand the 2 minutes 39 seconds of my life back!!! SMDH! NEXT!

6. "Swagga Like Us" T.I. feat. Jay-Z, Kanye West & Lil Wayne (Paper Trail) ~ OK, this is more like it! SUPER Hot lyrics from arguably 4 of the best rappers in the game today!!! This remix is in several of my playlists and is definitely a long standing favorite HOT TRACK in my book!

7. "Shut It Down" Pitbull feat. Akon (Rebelution) ~ This may not be one of Pitbull's best tracks, but you gotta admit that ANYTHING with Pitbull on it is HOT! He knows how to get you up out of your seat!

8. "Lyrical Exercise (Beast Mix)" Ace Hood (Body Bag 3) ~ One of the most slept on in the game, Ace definitely went Beat Mode on this track! The Body Bag Series is a MUST Listen! Check out Ace Hood NOW!

9. "A Million Lights" DJ Khaled feat. Tyga, Cory Gunz, Mack Maine, Jae Millz, Kevin Rudolf (We The Best Forever) ~ BROOOOO! Talk about HOT TRACK! This who's who of the younger members of Young Money is BEAST of a track! The producer, the artists and the singer really did their thing on this track! I can listen to this one OVER AND OVER!!!

10. "Don't Say Nothing" Maino feat. Diddy-DirtyMoney (The Art Of War) ~ A HOT TRACK from one of the kings of the street and the king of flash! Maino stands out with great lyrics and his razor sharp delivery. Even Diddy pulls out a hot 16 for a strong feature, and of course, he brought the beautiful ladies of Dirty Money along with him! And they seal the deal to make this a great track! Certified Banger!

Bonus Track: "Do What You Do" Drake (Room For Improvement) ~ And finally, we end with a great early track from Drake, when he still had tons of respect from the industry and the fans! I still consider myself a fan, but you have to admit over the years, his rep has dwindled! Check out this mixtape, it's one of his best of his early period! You can definitely tell why Drake was once one of the hottest commodities in the game!

And for your listening pleasure:
