#Sports: Thank You Brian Cashman!


I've been a life long New York Yankee fan since the age of 7 and as a Jersey native, that's kind of a big deal. I've grown up during the wonder years of Derek Jeter, Mariano Rivera, Jorge Posada, and Andy Pettite fueling the bombers to 5 world titles and having the Bombers in contention every year. Last year as well as this year have been beyond frustrating. So with the trade deadline now over I've got to give some love to Brian Cashman, Yankees GM for doing what has been needed to be done for quite some time now. He took 3 All-Stars, Aroldis Chapman, Andrew Miller, and Carlos Beltran (Ivan Nova too lol) and turned them into 12 electrifying, young, talented prospects. The Yankee farm system has been slim for years which happens when you build your team through trades and free agency year after year which just doesn't seem to work anymore. Cashman understood this and wisely convinced Hal and company to make these trades to secure the future of the Evil Empire. Oh yea, how could I forget! In 2 years, some guy named Bryce Harper and some other guys named Manny Mochado and Jose Fernandez will be free agents too. Lets say hypothetically the Yankees get 2 of those guys coupled with the influx of young prospects who will be well-seasoned by then and you could pretty much cue the Star Wars Empire Strikes Back theme music as loud as possible. Just look at what the Chicago Cubs are doing now. Thanks to Brian Cashman, the Yanks could be an even younger, more dominant version of that. I'm fine with that and if you're a Yankee fan you should be too.

Visions Vibes: Aitch - Drinkin and Women



Today's #VisionsVibes is from an artist whose journey I've watched unfold for the better part of the last 8 years. A Jersey native by the name of Aitch (formerly H-Money). I've watched as a close confidant and from a distance as he's mastered his craft and steadily grown into the artist on the cusp of stardom. He is a lyrical tactician with the swagger of a north jersey native and the flow to boot. His most recent single Drink and Women embodies his style of artistry and shows he has found his lane and is pushing forward full throttle. This is a name you need to remember because you will be hearing much more often. Check out Aitch's track Drinking and Women after the jump! Also checkout his Soundcloud, SnapchatTwitter, and Instagram

Visions Vibes: Drake - One Dance featuring Wizkid & Kyla


Today's  #VisionsVibes are from the Hitmaker himself, Drake. His most recent release "One Dance" is a dancehall/hip hop/house music crossover that seems like a reprise to Rihanna's "Work". This track has been on repeat ever since I saw it in a hilarious video, from internet celebrities King Keraun and Simone Shepherd, on the oddly true fact that some songs just grow on you pretty quickly even if you don't start out liking it. Check their video out here. One Dance definitely catches your attention with how melodic the beat is and will keep you dancing. It's reminiscent of Drake and Rihanna's "Take Care" in that sense. This track also helps build the growing anticipation for Drake's forthcoming album "Views From the Six" expected to release just in time for the summer. So check out the track below and jam out for the week. ENJOY!

Visions Vibes: Chance the Rapper - Favorite Song



My visions vibes for this week takes us back a few years! I'm admittedly new to the Chance the Rapper wave but I'm a die hard Childish Gambino fan and this song is the perfect collaboration of the two. Keeping it simple this week! Check the song and the album Acid Rap which is where it comes from. Enjoy!

Visions Vibes: Big K.R.I.T. - Just Last Week


Hey guys! Today's Visions Vibes is also a bit of a throwback! Today April 10th 2016 marks the 3rd anniversary of Big K.R.I.T.'s Album King Remembered In Time! This album was a true classic in my eyes and solidified K.R.I.T. as on of my favorite rappers and one of the top southern rappers of this generation. So in honor of the release, my #VisionsVibes track is "Just Last Week" featuring Future. This track was featured as a snippet on the album and the original track released later. It's truly a dope track that converges turn up and lyrical skill in the right sweet spot. Enjoy the track and the full album below!
