Video: “Sweatpants” by Childish Gambino & Problem

Everyone knows about Donald Glover’s new album Because the Internet and his history of having emotional problems within himself. Watching this very creative video I think displays the discussion going on inside his head 24/7. Basically this song is about him looking at himself both positively and negatively. At least that’s what I see. It could be interpreted many different ways. Check it out and see what you think. Then go watch the “3005″ video with Abella Anderson again.

 Writing for these “Me & My Headphones” gets more difficult every week. I don’t really have anything to say except listen to the music below. Each week we get tons of submissions and hundreds of songs are released every week. These are the best ones that we found and think will heighten your weekend. I tried to keep it small this weekend so that many it wasn’t so overwhelming and the quality is better. Please let us know what you think but liking the post or sharing. You should grab all these songs and follow the artists that made them. Good shit – have a good weekend! [Update] Fuck it, adding more songs you guys should have. You’re welcome.

Event: Hot 97 Summer Jam (June 1st @ MetLife Stadium)

For the biggest hip hop fans on the east coast, this is probably the biggest concert around. Drake’s OVO Fest is your other best option but the tickets at this point are incredibly high. Saw some girl actually offer to have sex with someone for good seats. So yah, scratch that. Anyways, the crowds and performances for this festival have been pretty monumental. Hot 97 has been doing this for a long time now and each year they draw some of the best poets of hip hop from around the country. This year will feature two stages and artists like Nas, 50 Cent, Lil’ Wayne, Wiz Khalifa, Kid Ink, Childish Gambino, and more will be in attendance. Still not the knockout line-up hip hop fans are looking for but it will be a party all day in MetLife Stadium no doubt. Tickets are on sale now so don’t waste time!

 This week is all over the map from songs with smooth lullaby synths to trap remixes of songs. I would highly recommend the Myndset remix and also the Chainsmokers remix. The song “Leaving” by Skrillex that I dug up out of his soundcloud is a gem also. Hope you all kicked off the WKND right and are ready for a good saturday. This is what I’m listening to and I hope you are too. Dosing off so I’ll let the music speak for itself. Peace -

“Days In The East” by Drake

About a week ago, Drake premiered a song in England that everyone ID’d as “Call On Me”. Turns out the song is called “Days In The East” and it’s quality. Produced by 40 and PARTYNEXTDOOR, this is signature Drake and the kid’s control of the hip hop game continues. Might actually contain a little PARTYNEXTDOOR sample but can’t be sure. The artwork also displays a “6″ which may indicate more music… man I hope. If you didn’t catch on already, the song is about Rihanna. Yesterday he also released this song called “Draft Day” to commemorate his boy Johnny Manziel but I wasn’t feeling it as much. This guy Drake man is too much. Kanye, where that new album at?

Event: The Number #Fest [April 12th, 2014 @ Ohio University]

In less than 2 weeks 15,000 students will rendezvous in the fields of Athens, OH for the biggest Collegiate Music Festival in the US. For over a decade, #Fest has been increasing in size and popularity and now it’s a nationwide known event. Their impressive line-ups and unique BYOB format attracted more than 15,000 students last year and I expect it’ll destroy that number this year. The festival is in two weeks and will feature a whole day of music starting with up-and-coming DJ’s and hip hop artists to big names like Carnage, GRiZ, and Wiz Khalifa. After the jump you can check out more about the festival and the artists they have performing. You can also go to their official site for more detail. Tickets are on sale now and are only $35. As spring slowly approaches, The Number #Fest seems like the best place to be on April 12th – see you guys there!
