METHOD TO THE MADNESS: Get out and make some memories.
Summer is drawing to a close. I urge you, go out, have fun, get drunk. Now. Because With the fallen leaves, and for some, nervous breakdowns and failing grades, their will be the sobering season called Fall. The Fall is the time that most put in work, raise their stress levels and build their G.P.A. The Summer, for many, is the time to build memories. For myself, memories of a Summer have been compounded by music. I remember I was in Summer School back in 2000 when Nelly's "Country Grammar" had everyone unconsciously singing an interpolation of "The Jeffersons" theme song. In the Summer, songs often become the soundtrack to your life. Everyone has a song that takes them back in time to a Summer moment that meant something to them.
With this little mixtape I didn't include the "Umbrella's", "Ay Bay Bay's" or the "Can't Tell Me Nothing's". Nahhhhh, what I am trying to do is give you some songs that should have gotten more attention. Some of these songs have had no accompanying videos on MTV or major radio airplay. Some have. Either way, enjoy the music and the last days of Summer. You may find the track that could bring you back to August 2007 when that cold ass Winter comes.
