Tareau’s Three Tunes Tuedays #2

Well thank you for looking at my 1st music post last week. I got a good response so let’s do it again.

Alessia Cara “Here” 

Lmfao yes! I love this song. When I was a tour bus driver, my co workers daughter would always sing this song. I had no idea what she was singing about but I loved the story. About a teenage girl who gets dragged to a party by her friends. She clearly did not want to be at said party. Hahahaha. She was singing her lil ass off tho. 

The Jackson 5 “Ready Or Not”


Off of their 3rd Album entitled “Third Album” I think this would be my favorite Jackson 5 song ever. With the utmost respect to the Delfonics, I really liked the Jackson 5 version better. 

The Stylistics “One Night Affair” 


Off of the hard to find “Love Spell” album, this song says it all. We’ve all been there. Men and Women alike. Man they were so soulful. 

 As a bonus song the rap group “Little Brother” sampled this song for their hit song “Lovin It” off of their album called “The Minstrel Show” 

Well here you are folks. Hopefully this will get you through, what feels like Monday Jr. Tuesday. Hahaha. Thank You 


Rappers Who Restored my Faith in Music

I’m back to listening to actual music! If you don’t know I took a break for a couple of years from rap/hip-hop music. Mostly because everything sounded the same and I was frustrated with the lack of originality. So I started listening to  a little Jazz, but mostly talk radio.

Well if you know me than you know, I need to peek behind the curtain of my past to see what’s going on sometimes. In the age of mumbling buffoonery and incoherent babble running the airwaves I think the game is changing back to the real.

I discovered a group of cats that have restored my faith in the genre I grew up loving. These are dudes that combined charisma with actual bars! Because at the end of the day that’s what I want: Bars! Substance. I missed music! But I’m back.

So without further  ado:


ScHoolboy Q


Repping: Los Angeles, Ca.

I was listening to this dude before I took my break, so he was definitely someone I wanted to tap in to, and check the consistency on. Yup, still killing the game! I love that his videos are like mini movies. Here’s a link to  School Boy’s Vevo so you can check out his work.

J. Cole


Repping: Fayetteville, NC.

We talking Bars? Ok cool.

This generations Nas ( yeah I said it!) never disappoints. The best part about Cole is, he doesn’t give a shit about changing his style to get the attention of casual fans. You fuck with Cole or you don’t. And if you don’t it’s probably because you like dumbed down mumblers.


Nef the Pharaoh


Repping: Vallejo, Ca.

This kid be grinding! I love work ethic. Pumping out video after video. Nef reminds me of a young Mac Dre. In style and work ethic. I definitely see and hear the influence.


Nipsey Hussle 


Repping: Los Angeles, Ca.

Nipsey makes me want to get up go make money, and be a G ass CEO! This is another rapper I was listening to before I quit rap. So he was definitely one of the guys I purposely came looking for. I love work ethic. This dude  owns his company, is killing independently and has a store on Slausen slanging clothes from HIS clothing line.




Repping: Sacramento, Ca.

Come on man. What can I say about the guy? Mozzy been grinding for years, and virtually put himself on. Who else you know without any major backing getting millions upon millions of views on YouTube, and everybody in the country talking about him. Mozzy got a mean buzz? How many street cats you know with mean bars? Straight outta Sacramento at that.


Rappers I plan to give a chance to

Chance the Rapper

I hear nothing but great things about this Chicago rapper. Bars is his speciality. So I’m tapping in soon as I press publish! Plus he just donated $1 Million dollars to the Chicago School district. And that’s big. He recognizes there’s no true progress as a people without educational progress.

Asap Rocky

He’s had a mean buzz for a couple of years. But it happened around the time I gave up on rap. But I’ll give him a solid listen, and see what it’s all about. I did hear him freestyle on the Sway show. So I’m all ears.

Tee Grizzley

The hottest thing out of Detroit right now, with the hottest song in the country. Hands down. Only 22, and the sky is the limit. I wanted to put him on the list, but I want to see a body of work first, to know I feel justified about this cat.

Lupe Fiasco 

That was my guy before I stopped listening to music. But I’m definitely looking for anything new he may have.


I need to get up on game quick! I do. I heard his freestyle on Sway in the morning. I’m eager to see his written shit.

G Eazy

I keep hearing great things about this cat too. Plus he rep Oakland, so I need to see!
