IF MY LOVE LIFE WAS A PLAYLIST

IF MY LOVE LIFE WAS A PLAYLIST

Love! Gotta love love right? I've been blessed to have had the feeling. It's as cool as the fucking Catalina Wine Mixer. Everyone has to have a soundtrack to the history of their love life. If you don't, I encourage you to create a playlist of your love life. You may cry. You may smile but it's a funny activity that I did and I'm glad I created one. I'm going to share it with you, maybe put some of you on game. 

IMMATURE - CONSTANTLY

 

The first girl that ever called my house for me was Tasha. She probably has a gang of kids now, but she was bad dawg. She used to call my house and have the Immature album "Playtime Is Over" playing in the background along with her momma cussing her out about being on the phone for so long and her sisters yelling "Is that Justin?" (My government) repeatedly. She used to play "Constantly" so fucking much I learned the words. Tasha was my shorty back then along with Cee-Cee. 

SUBWAY FEAT 702 - THIS LIL GAME WE PLAY

Another song honey's I used to talk on the phone with would play in the background. We was like 11 years old and had no business listening to this shit. 

KEY - GROWN ASS MAN

A couple of women had me fucked up in my love life. It happens. They forget I'm a Grown Ass Man and I do what I please if we're not dating exclusively. I trip too. I'm not innocent, but just because I look like Little Bill don't mean I'm not a grown ass man. 

JONELL FEAT METHOD MAN - ROUND AND ROUND

Every man has been in this situation. Especially myself. I had no act right when I was young. Locked out of apartments. Houses. All for doing normal shit like lying, and being inconsiderate. Never cheated though. I'm wearing that shit like a badge of honor since women think that's all we do. I've thought about it no doubt. Could've done it a bunch of times but I held on strong. 

NIRVANA - RAPE ME 

What the fuck right? Rape is not cool. Never will be. In the words of the ATL rapper Trouble "Like a thief in the night. I'll take anything but some pussy." I picked this song because of the rape some women have committed against me. It's called "Time Rape." They were raping my fucking time. Let me give an example so I'm clear. Let's say I'm at a woman crib. We've talked. Ate. Joaned on each other because that's what we do. Fucked. Everything. Spent hours together maybe a night. In my mind I'm thinking damn I got some leftover chinamen at my crib and I'm trying to play some Zelda and watch ESPN. I tell her I gotta go and she says "Why? Just Stay here." She is officially raping my time. You are trying to force me to stay here against my will. No means No. I have to leave. 

C-MURDER FEAT MAGIC & SNOOP DOGG - DOWN FOR MY NIGGAS

You ever go on double dates with your woman and she expects you to be best friends with her homegirls boyfriend? Don't get me wrong I'm not rude or no shit like that. I speak. I'm a gentlemen, I engage in conversation but your woman expects you to kick it with the nigga like you've known him for 10 years. She'll even say some silly shit like "He likes sports too bae. You guys should hang out" WHAT MAN DON'T LIKE SPORTS?! She trying to set up play dates and shit. No disrespect I ain't hanging with this guy unless you're present. My gang is already gang. I'm down for them. I ride for them. 

GUCCI MANE - FIRST DAY OUT

When I stop fucking with a chick this the first song that pops in my head. She on my shit list. I'm on the forbes list. I'm back in the streets. 

AMY WINEHOUSE - IN MY BED

When she don't want to give up the box no more or makes it very difficult for you to get it. You've already fucked 856989 times but she hit you with the deadliest question known to man. "What are we?" 

NIGHT AND DAY - AL B SURE

When you feeling her and what you have is fresh. Shorty is right! 

SLUM VILLAGE - CLIMAX

PEOPLE. SLEEP. ON. THIS. SONG. There was a phase in my sex life in college where I tried to count how many times I can make women orgasm. I'd just be doing my thing and then she says that magic sentence and in my mind I scream "GOT EM!" Dilla also sampled the song above for this. Fun Fact. 

CAM'RON FEAT JUELZ SANTANA - HEY MA PT 3

"Now I remember when I met you I said it. I wanted you girl I meant it I said it. I fuck with you girl" - Juelz Santana

Enough said. 

D'ANGELO - LADY 

When she is yours and you know what you're blessed to have, that means the world. She rare and I'm lucky. 

DJ QUIK - IT'Z YOUR FANTASY

However any woman I've dealt with wanted it. I could deliver. You know I can't make a playlist without my all time favorite rapper. 

DMX - HOW'S IT GOIN DOWN

Every man has been through this shit. I definitely went through this. She hate her man and she creep on the side. It's life. 

FUTURE - MARCH MADNESS

This has nothing to do what my love life what so fucking ever. It's just flame. I'm a play it at my wedding though. 

ILL AL SKRATCH - I'LL TAKE HER

True Story =) 

JANET JACKSON - FUNNY HOW TIME FLIES

Every relationship, fling, friends with benefits, whatever they were all fun. Good or bad there were fun moments and time most definitely flies by. 

Z-RO - I HATE YOU BITCH

I've had heartbreak and it's some weak shit. When I would think about it at the time this song comes to my head. All I could think about when it happened was "Damn this the consequence for loyalty?" It turned me into a savage for a couple of years because I could've been doing so much cooler shit with my time. I really wasn't even tripping off the woman I was just tripping off the time I wasted, I can't get that shit back. I regret that phase in my life to the point it's a blur to me. It never happened (Future voice). I just became heartless. I got over that shit though but that shit hurt back then. 

KEY & FKI - I CANT MAKE MY MIND UP

Every time I asked a woman what she wanted to eat. This was her answer. 

LLOYD - VALENTINE

I've had some dope Valentine's Day moments in my life. I got my first real kiss on Valentine's Day. This song fits. 

N.E.R.D - RUN TO THE SUN

There was this girl in high school who I used to like and I was the only black kid who listened to N.E.R.D in my school and I had my headphones on and she asked to put them on and she heard this song and she loved it. I just thought it was dope that I put her on one of my favorite bands. We kicked it a few times and we always bonded over music. 

NEW EDITION - YOU'RE NOT MY TYPE OF GIRL

Telling girls I didn't "Like them Like them" back is a horrible feeling as a kid and a adult. I never forget I made a girl cry in 4th grade because she asked to be my girlfriend and I said "I don't like you that way." She cried and I felt like complete shit. I wasn't mean to her or anything but I liked this other girl so that's why I didn't like her but that girl didn't like me. You see how that works? 

THE PHARCYDE - 4 BETTER OR 4 WORSE

You have to take good Benny and bad Benny. 

WALE - THE BREAK UP SONG

BRUHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH. I don't even listen to Wale but this his most relatable song. Hit home for me. 

PRINCE - THE BEAUTIFUL ONES

You ever feel so emotional over a woman? 

R.KELLY - SEEMS LIKE YOU'RE READY

The afternoon I lost my virginity. This song was on a slow jam mix cd I had. 

PRETTY WILLIE - 4 WALLS

This song just reminds me of all the clubs I'd hit up when I was a teenager chasing girls. Palace, Saints, Limelight, Incahoots, etc. We thought we were grown. True St.Louis shit. 

RICK JAMES & TEENA MARIE - FIRE AND DESIRE

When you overcome that player shit and get into a dope ass relationship. It's too POLITE! 

SIR MICHAEL ROCKS - OVER AND OVER

Self Explanatory. Don't you agree? 

LIL JON & THE EASTSIDE BOYS FEAT USHER & LUDACRIS - LOVERS AND FRIENDS

The friends with benefits phase. Shit was unhealthy but so right at the same time. 

SWV - YOU'RE ALWAYS ON MY MIND

Back in the day when you get a shorty number and after the first few convos on the phone you both can't stop thinking about each other. Too real. 

AMERIE - WHY DON'T WE FALL IN LOVE

Song always reminded me of the summer flings. I never forget I met this chick Tiffany through mutual people and she straight looked like Amerie low key and she was taller than me and this song straight came on the radio while I was trying to get her number. Easy money. You know I got those digits.

JAY-Z - ALLURE

Jay rapped about how the drug game was hard to leave. He just didn't know why he did it. This was my relationships in high school. We know we 're not right for each other yet we still can't stay away from each other. It's the Allure of the game. 

JAGGED EDGE - LET'S GET MARRIED

You ever have a woman fuck you so good it was like her credit score was on the line? If she put it on you so good her prize would be a perfect credit score? I have. I have (Khaled voice). This was the song that popped up in my head when she was on top riding my life away.
