Summer Meme: Sing Along / Seven Songs

I got tagged by my boy Tofu. This blog tag mission involves listing 7 songs that are shaping my summer. The instructions are this:

“List seven songs you are into right now. No matter what the genre, whether they have words, or even if they’re not any good, but they must be songs you’re really enjoying now, shaping your spring summer. Post these instructions in your blog along with your seven songs. Then tag seven other people to see what they’re listening to.”

I'm gonna bend the rules though because that is what I do. These songs shape my summer, but the shape is a beautiful female figure. So I'm going to go through and list from the head to the toes where each song fits.

7) - The Head: Nas - Hero
This has been the song so far that I haven't been able to get out of my head. Read this if you want to know how I feel about this joint.

6) - The Mouth: Young Jeezy Feat. Kanye West - Put On
I chose this for the mouth because I find myself randomly quoting Kanye's verse...excessively. You don't know how many times I have said "I need just at least, one of Russel's nieces" or "I feel like there's still bitches that owe me sex". I can't recreate the warbling vocals that 'Ye did with the help of autotune but I can match his intensity and that is all that matters.

5) - The Shoulders: Bill O'Reilly - DO IT LIIIIVE!!!!!!11 (Discotech Remix)
Why the shoulders? Because this song deserves a shrug. Who would have thought that I would have a Bill O'Reilly "song" on repeat, let alone be listening to him this summer? This joint is not only funny but it's dope as hell.

4) - The Chest: T.I. - No Matter What
I chose this song for the chest because it takes a lot of heart to do what T.I. is doing. Making great music while knowing that he isn't going to be a free man pretty soon. This song is just crazy. Organs, synths, the whole kitchen sink and a catchy ass chorus.

3) - The Hips/Ass: Harumi - Don't Know What I'm Gonna Do
A little known artist released a self titled album in 1968 that combined psychedelic rock and soul and this is my favorite track from it. The instrumentation and melody of this song is great, I can't count how many times I have listened to this one.

2) - The Legs: Bishop Lamont Feat. Busta Rhymes - Kissin' Tha Curb
This Carson California rapper is down with the good doctor, Dre and he brings in Busta to pump some more energy into a song already brimming with it. Why the legs though? Because it makes me want to go American History X and stomp a face into a curb. Any Busta Rhymes feature can make you want to do that though.

1) - The Feet: Rich Boy - Chevy A Monsta
Rich Boy despite having the forehead of the Predator he can make some catchy shit. "Chevy A Monsta" is no exception. The beat get's my feet tapping and also makes me wish I could put them on a Chevrolet gas pedal instead of getting my public transportation on in this hot ass summer weather. Oh and this track has a "Tales from the Crypt" sample in the beginning which renders it a winner automatically.

I think I might be a little late because I have only 3 people that I can even tag for this one. It seems everyone else already did this 7 songs thing. So here, I tag Chris, Ren Ariel Sano and Model Minority.
