Here’s another round of our Staff Picks, where we get to showcase our different music interests, and probably help you build a playlist of your own. We’re always asked what we listen to, so we figured this would be a great way to connect with everyone. Feel free to share your music tastes with us.

2 Chainz & Drake “Big Amount”
This song, the beat, their flows, everything about it hits for me. I actually visualize how I think the video should be, and it involves a dojo in a trap house. Yeah, and I’ll take nothing less.
Mac Miller & Anderson .Paak “Dang!”
Jesus. Do yourselves a favor and set your alarm to this every morning. This is the kind of music I like to wake up to. Anderson .Paak’s chorus really meshes well with the instrumental and Mac’s flow. Bravo on all ends.
Deniece Williams “Free”
For the most part, I’m listening to oldies, and this one’s a goodie. Deniece Williams’ “Free” was often played by my mom growing up and it still gets me. Seriously, just listen to her voice.
21 Savage & Metro Boomin’ “Savage Mode”
I can’t get over how surprisingly good this tape is. 21 Savage’s voice meshed with Metro Boomin’s production just flows incredibly well.
William DeVaughn “Be Thankful For What You Got”
Another old goodie. I can’t help but feel like an old school pimp when this comes on. Everything s right in life when I hear it, so I play it quite often.
