This Is For The Winners #AmethystList

This is for the winners Amethyst List

Welcome to this week’s #AmethystList on Apple Music.

Shout out to all of you pathological manifestors on this beautiful Saturday.

We missed an article last week; quick update of that Amethyst List called ‘Can’t Fake The Funk’ based on some really funky records modern & classic.

Now let’s get into this creation called “This Is For The Winners”  I decided to make my Apple Music list match this week’s Soundcloud list “This Is For The Sinners” with titles & illustration. Meaning you can play them back to back.

This particular list is based on sounds, production & cadences. Like all #AmethystList playlists each song is methodically & melodically placed so it’s shuffle-friendly but sounds really amazing in a chronological order. This title list is in the form of a story & goes like this:

 

      • Heaven
      • One I Want
      • Stay Blessed
      • Don’t Wanna Breathe
      • She Don’t Wanna Man
      • No Drama
      • Love Scars
      • Me or Us
      • The Life
      • Diplomatic Immunity
      • How U Feel
      • You Got Me
      • God’s Plan

If you want to start dancing right away or listen along while you read here you go. Now let’s get into it.

“Heaven” by Justine Skye off her newly released album called ‘Ultraviolet’ is just the kind of R&B track to set the tone followed up by the similar sounds of “One I Want” by Majid Jordan & PartyNextDoor.

“Stay Blessed” from Bryson Tiller takes us to the theme of a man in love and pouring his heart out followed by Kodak Black’s “Don’t Wanna Breathe” a similar sentiment.

Taking us back with a classic by Curren$y “She Don’t Wanna Man”He tell her balance the cheque book, I tell her roll the weed up. This song is so raw & real.

Up next is the new single “No Drama” by Tinashe featuring Offset. This beat matches perfectly with “Love Scars” from Trippie Redd.

Squeezed into the transition “Me Or Us” a short & sweet track by Young Thug. Moving into a certified LEGENDARY banger from the G.O.A.T. Styles P featuring Pharoahe Monch “The Life.”Amethyst List

A perfect opening for The Boy Drake’s latest single “Diplomatic Immunity” that meshes well into
“How U Feel” by Huncho Jack (Travis Scott & Quavo).

Back again Justine Skye’s“You Got Me” with vocals lended by PartyNextDoor is another promising song off her new album.

Rapping it up I leave you with another single from Champagne Papi called “God’s Plan.”

Convictions to My Addictions #AmethystList

What’s Your Addiction?

“Shorty let me tell you about my only vice
It has to do with lots of lovin and it ain’t nothin nice” 

Q-tip – Electric Relaxtion

Welcome back!  Last week I skipped the write-up for the last playlist called ‘Wrist Flicking Chemist’ if you didn’t get a chance to check it take a listen it was surprisingly inspired by Breaking Bad and had new tracks from Killy, Sean Leon, Miguel and so much more.

Now here we are with the stand point of the addict vs last week was the chemist (I know I’m clever).  So what kind of vices we talking about?  I tried to focus on the addiction of being loved & being in love but I do touch on money, power, sex, and drugs.

*Just as a disclaimer this is strictly for entertainment and I’m not promoting drug use*

Like every #AmethystList the titles of each song in this particular order tells a story according to the theme but each song is methodically melodically placed so it’s shuffle friendly.  This list goes like this:

  • Love/Hate
  • Monday to Monday
  • Tough Love
  • You Can Stay Here Tonight
  • Rendezvous
  • Wanna Get To Know You
  • Power
  • Addiction
  • How’s It Goin Down
  • U With Me?

Now let’s get into the synopsis if you just want to listen here you go.  For the lovers of music come along this musical journey with me.

First up we have a powerful Intro off of Dru Hill’s Dru World Order called “Love/Hate” I love the vocals but the simple lyrics ‘You can love me or hate me’ is the best way to set any mood.

‘I got my mind on my money nigga from Monday to Monday.  Thinking about my money go to Church on a Sunday.  Popped an ecstacy pills, xans when I wanna.  You can’t talk to me about that good or bad karma.’ These lyrics from “Monday to Monday” by Roy Woods perfectly describes the theme of this list.  Money, sex, and drugs.  This beat reminds me of Gypsy Woman by Crystal Waters but has that Caribbean influence you adopt from Toronto.  His debut album ‘Say Less’ just released with more of these vibes.

“Tough Love” is a clever title to follow but an even better song by Chris Brown from my favourite album of the year HBOAFM.

As a transition I placed this little snippet “You Can Stay Here Tonight”  by Tinashe to fall into “Rendezvous” by PartyNextDoor.  The deep production of this song takes you to another place.

Relaxing into a more upbeat tempo here’s some nostalgia with G-Unit & Joe called “Wanna Get To Know You”.  This song rhythmically matches “Power” by Goapele (If you see the connection hats off to you).  Following after that we have one of my favourite songs by Kanye West “Addiction” a very self-explanatory song check the lyrics…

What’s your addiction? Is it money? Is it girls? Is it weed? I’ve been afflicted by not one, not two, but all three. She’s got the same thing, about me, but more, about us
She’s coming over, so I guess, that means, I’m her drugs’

I’m hitting hard with classics but since we discussing love that messes with the mental to a point it must be an addiction who better to break it down honestly than DMX “How’s It Goin Down” featuring Faith Evans.  Followed up by the modern day version by the boy Drake “U With Me?” the best way to finish.

Now that you got the storyline check out the playlist here on Apple music & make sure you hit follow on my Apple Profile to get all the bonuses & perks.

 

 

 

‘Feed Them the Fruits of Eden’ #AmethystList

Amethyst List Album

“I seduce you with this Aston Martin I bought today.”

Future- Hallucinating

Temptations

An #AmethystList dedicated to the natural feelings brought up towards vices.  In a world where we are constantly shamed for our desires I’m a person of full admiration with lifestyles that harm no one.  Honouring people is an important part to coexistence & what better way to do that but through music.

Now like all of my playlists this is shuffle-friendly but sounds really amazing if you play it in chronological order.  Let’s explore this list we have here:

  • Wild Love
  • Ignorant Sh*t
  • Plastic Bag
  • Hallucinating
  • Insecure
  • Stuck With Me
  • Paradise
  • Aston Martin Music
  • Cherry Wine
  • First World Problemz / Nobody Carez

Let’s get into the breakdown but if you want to dive right in click here.  For the music lovers here we go.

An eerie sound to tune the mind we have “Wild Love” from Cashmere Cat featuring The Weeknd & Francis and The Lights.  Abel’s voice is so haunting here I can play this song on repeat.

Inner City Vices we’re picking up the tempo with this classic “Ignorant Sh*t” by Jay-z & Beanie Sigel spitting catchy lyrics & punchlines for days.  It plays right into “Plastic Bag” by Drake & Future.  Magic City on a Monday, this is probably one of my favourite stripper songs off of the beat alone.  Followed up by “Hallucinating” we have Future again. ‘I’m a young n*gga with this cheque & I f*ck it up, the freshest thang I ever bought was that Bentley Truck.’

The Vice Of Love we snap into “Insecure” by Brent Faiyaz.  ‘Please don’t think I’m insecure, I just can’t trust no one else.  Please don’t think I’m insecure, I just feel safe by myself.’ Now, understand I love to add a reply to songs that sound extremely similar production wise.  So “Stuck With Me” by Tamia was a perfect rebuttal. ‘Baby, you’re stuck with me.’

Matching the vibes I bring to you a fairly new artist Malcolm Jabriel that reached out to me & immediately I knew where to place this song called “Paradise.”  Jazzy tones & a sexy ballad it opens the door for another classic “Aston Martin Music” by Rick Ross, Drake, & Chrisette Michele. ‘Would have came back for you. I just needed time to do what I had to do. Caught in the life I can’t let it go. Whether that’s right I will never know.’

Now a little pick me up “Cherry Wine” by Nas & the late Amy Winehouse.  These lyrics are powerful beyond measure & always makes me feel like Nas is talking about me, take a look,“I want someone who like the champagne I like. My a-alike, someone to talk me off the bridge any day or night. She teach me how to live, she ain’t afraid of life.  Not easily impressed with the rich and famous life.  Cause she done been there and heard all the rumors before.  She loves art, she ride out with me on my music tour.  She like the herbs, natural medicine, she cooking good. She tell me everything is cool when it ain’t looking good.”

Now this final song to follow up I pat myself on the back for noticing how amazing these tracks play together.  “First world Problemz / Nobody Carez” by Brent Faiyaz.  I love this 3 piece song with a poem at the intermission.

Now your palate is wet & savory take a listen here on Apple Music.  Also hit follow on my Apple Music Profile to get ahead of the curb & hear my other lists.

Late Nights In Paradise

“Had a meeting with the devil last week, couldn’t believe what he said to me” Chris Brown “Yellow Tape”

I’m proud of this week’s Amethyst List.

I probably say this every time I make a playlist and I’m most likely going to say it again but I’ll just state it I killed this playlist.

The artists of each song are motivating forces in music today. I have been inspired by every single song on here so now I got a story to tell.

This hour long list is something to smoke a blunt, sip wine, vibe, relax, joyride or create to.  This shuffle-friendly list is initially in a title order according to a story of a lover focused on bettering themselves rather than the love of their life because they are battling thoughts of temptation.

  • This Ain’t
  • Paradise
  • Gave Your Love Away
  • Issues
  • Held me Down
  • Needed
  • Moving Mountains
  • Nuh Time/ Tek Time
  • I Think She like Me
  • Paradise
  • Better Man
  • Don’t Judge Me
  • Yellow Tape
  • You’re Everything

All of these songs vibe with a powerful & deep production, that’s why I stress it’s shuffle-friendly but in case you want to come along this journey with me here’s our Amethyst List’s breakdown.

On Halloween Chris Brown released his 45-song album called Heart Break On A Full Moon so we start with his song This Ain’t followed up by Daniel Casear’s Paradise featuring Badbadnotgood & Sean Leon.   I gotta make something for myself, if you want to get this money…come & join me. 

With sounds eclectic of house music & a 90’s vibe Majid Jordan Gave Your Love Away. Off their new sophomore album called The Space Between.  Noting thoughts of confusion.

Bringing honest feelings & emotions bluntly stated by PNB Rock & Russ we got some “Issues” while Nav & Metro Boomin slow the tempo with “Held Me Down” stating I been running from my problems, I’ve been running from you.  Then we have one of my top 10 new artists that I adore Brent Faiyaz with “Needed” a song that has a Dirty Diana flavour. Adding in sexy raspy soprano sounds from Syd we’re “Moving Mountains.”  A broken hearted lover’s reply I’ve been moving mountains for you, working my fingers to the bone and what I got to show for it?

I know you say that people make time for shit that they want, well it’s not I don’t want you but you want more from me…”Nuh Time/ Tek Time” is a 2 part ballad that hits home for me by singer Daniel Daley & producer Nineteen85’s duo called Dvsn from their album Morning After.  Then Ricky Rozay aka Rick Ross alongside Ty Dolla $ign “I Think She like Me” a sample from the classic joint  “People Make The World Go Round” by The Stylistics.

I’ve been looking for love in all the wrong places. Popping up a second time Chris Brown explains why it hurts when you fall out of  “Paradise.”  Now give me some time so I can be a better lover, PartyNextDoor pours out his heart in “Better Man” featuring Rick Ross.  I love the line ‘I watched my mama go through the same thing.’

Excuses, excuses while they say “Don’t Judge Me” this track is from Ty Dolla $ign (who just released Beach House 3) this song features Future & Swae Lee; of course I love the end transition it soothes into what I call the warning song of this story “Yellow Tape” a song that reverberates in your system lyrically & musically by Chris Brown.  My fave song from HBOAFM.

Finishing up this narrative our main character decided to do their own thing keeping it trill I bring you the ageless “You’re Everything” by Bun B featuring Rick Ross, David Banner, 8Ball & MJG.  Blended with vocals from Jodeci ‘s“Cry For You.”

Now that you got the 411 go listen to the vibes on Apple Music.

#AmethystList Returns

“I used to want a million, then I wanted ten, now I want 100.”– Young Dolph Drippy”


Making a comeback this Amethyst List Playlist is fully endorsed by Drippy Supply Clothing & Lifestyle brand.

With 2 brand new songs straight off “Thinking Out Loud” by Young Dolph & “Super Slime” by Future & Young Thug setting the tone.

Third song up is Drippy’s very own Wayve with “Rounds/100 Ways” transitioning the list into some of the hottest tracks from Toronto.

With music from Friyie, TVGUCCI, Pinky AFM & Mekhi giving you a different sound from our city that’s just straight vibes.

Now catch the transition, we still keeping it RepsUp with Preme’s single “Tango(Go)” & the double hitter Dvsn’s “Hallucinations RepsUp Remix” by Gilla.  Then we squeeze in those UK sounds with Giggs featuring Dave on “Peligro” (probably one of the most gangster beats ever produced.)

Speaking of crazy production Belly’s track “Papyrus” produced by Boi1da is the perfect song to proceed.  With Nav & Metro Boomin giving you a Minute picking up the mood perfectly to introduce Baka Not Nice’s banger “Money In The Bank.”

Followed by his brothers Preme & Partynextdoor brand new single “Can’t Hang”…when I say this shit bangs, we played it on repeat at the club with no complaints. This song followed by Party’s “Bad Intentions” closes up this list on a flawless high note.
