Your Friday Earsnack Forecast

Guess what, boys and girls? 
It's Friday!

The earsnack forecast for today is very Drizzy with a chance of Robin Thicke.
Oh yeah. Get those umbrellas ready!

Jodeci Freestyle - Drake feat J. Cole

Probably the most perfect bridge between J. Cole's knock out Born Sinner release and Drake's upcoming album is this "freestyle". We all know Drake couldn't freestyle his way out of a sound booth (sorry, Drizzy) but J. Cole is pretty dang good at it. Drake's verses seem just as polished as anything else he does, while Cole takes his time and pulls in some classic freestyle rhymes and methods. 

Versace Remix - Migos feat Drake

This is my guilty pleasure song. Drake is cocky as usual. There are constant denials of Illuminati fellowship. The true reason why I think this song is awesome because I now get to walk around and ask people "Versace?" like it's an actual question. I also respond to questions with "Versace" like it's an actual answer. Really I just say "Versace" whenever the mood strikes me. 
Versace. Versace, Versace? Versace-Versace.

Give It 2 U - Robin Thicke ft Kendrick Lamar

Remember a few months back when the world was a calmer place and people tended to keep their clothes on in music videos?
Yeah, me neither. Because Robin Thicke came back and eff'd all that up (in a good way).
When I first heard 'Blurred Lines' I thought "What is this ignorant shit?" 
Then it was stuck in my head.
Next, I was dancing to it. 
Later, I saw the video on accident.
By that point, I was hooked. 
Well, Robin has released the second single and it's equally jammin. Plus, Kendrick Lamar is here for the party. That's like when it's raining and then the sun comes out and then you see a rainbow and it's all pretty like in a Care Bears movie. 

Bonus Earsnack - Drake's Girl Love Beyoncé. If you haven't heard that yet, check it out. 

Enjoy these songs and your weekend!

Justice for Georgina, aka Go See Get Out Immediately

In Get Out, the brilliant new Jordan Peele film, black people are used by white people's brains. 
That's the shortest explanation, as there are so many levels to the movie. I'm typically not one to see scary movies (I can't even get through Michael Jackson's "Thriller" video), but when I read about this movie's perfect score on Rotten Tomatoes and the raving reviews from critics, I had to go and support this film from a black director with black stars.

I'm not a fan of scary movies. They always give me nightmares. Before I saw the film, a coworker assured me that I wouldn't have nightmares after watching Get Out. He was right and wrong. I didn't have nightmares about monsters lurking in dark corners, but I stayed awake unpacking all of the themes and metaphors of the film. In doing so, a big part of why I wasn't afraid occurred to me: These …

Sex. Dirty, Dirty Sex

Friends, I have something I have to let you know - if you don't know already: Sex is disgusting. 
Seriously, think about it. Ew, don't think about it.  Yes, it feels fantastic. If you're with the right person at the right time it feels out-of-this-world incredible (fireworks, much?).  But have you ever stopped to think about what you're doing? Like, literally?
You're placing your most private parts into someone else's most private parts. Or allowing someone to place their most private parts into yours, depending on your gender/sexual preference. That's GROSS, people! Sure we ignore it because it just feels so damn good. But come on, ew!
Then throw on top of that the consequences of this nasty habit we have:  1. A baby. Oh yes, this is a consequence. Particularly if you're not currently in the market for an infant. I don't even want to think about what that does to the body. There's no turning back from a baby. Well, there is, but that's ano…

How The New Prince Album(s) Wrecked My Life – In The Best Possible Way

If you don't know, now you know: Prince dropped an album yesterday called ART OFFICIAL AGE, and also brought us the debut album from his chick trio 3RDEYEGIRL titled PLECTRUMELECTRUM. 
 The Almighty Prince has been teasing us with new music for quite awhile now, dropping singles like "Breakfast Can Wait" long before the new album was announced. But then came the catchy and sexy "U Know" and the news that Prince would give us the first breath of new music since 20Ten in 2010. 
I've spent all of yesterday and today listening to these albums and I'm still not done. No surprise: Prince is blowing my mind. I'm a sucker for an album that tells a story, and this one tells a tale that's futuristic and retrospective at the same damn time. How? Prince, that's how. There's a wondering feeling that the protagonist is trying to find his place in life and love, only to discover (with the help of a guiding being) that he is everything, everything is h…
