Bassmentality 2/1/13 (playlist)
What up world! Greetings and #quasars. Mike 5ive Pre-Sent!
First let me say Rabbit, Rabbit! It’s a myth, according to Nick, Jr. (yes I’m citing Nick, Jr.) at the first of every month when you very first wake up say, “Rabbit, Rabbit!’ This is indefinitely grant you good luck all month long. Good luck to all those who remember,lol
This week’s show, 1st show of the spring Semester!, #hashtag was #NolaDays.
Unless you were under a rock you know the Superbowl is happening in my city this week. #Realtalk because the Saint’s not playing I could really care less. I know that’s not good sportsmanship but I have the RESERVED right to say Fcuk You if you not saying #whodat.
Anyway returning back to the theme/hashtag, In this week’s playlist, I wanted to compiled all of my memories and feelings of this week into a melody. For instance, earlier this week some students I’m teaching really got to experience “school” violence. There was a shooting on the corner of their block. Then counter clockwise we have Superbowl going on. I have to commute through the city so I see all this papier mache and gloss and wonder “damn where this shyt normally be at?” But I’m not totally saying this week was dystopian but I got to watch my Lady, New Orleans, go through her many phases. I definitely wanted to allude to the bad but still show that this is that City.
To start it off right I figure the best thing to do was introduce everybody to the main thing they know about New Orleans: Voodoo. And Papa Celestin held me down with “Marie Laveau.”
