#SilasSundays: Volume 1, 2, 3, 4, 5

5th installment of the best mothaf***in’ playlist series running on the internet today of my weekly selection of tracks from the Sound Cloud dot com. The mission statement remains the same as the previous month’s worth of playlists: I will give ya’ll a handful of songs to delve into that you may not have heard before. Even though these playlists are primarily hip-hop or RnB-centric, a wide spectrum of genres such as electronic, blues/soul, and rock for example permeate and disrupt the natural order – in a good way. If you’re having a hard time keeping up with the various beef in hip-hop (i.e. Drake/Cudi, Meek/Game/Beanie Sigel/Sean f*****g Kingston???) and/or simply do not care about the absurdity, but just want to listen to music and unwind on a Sunday afternoon, you came to the right place.

Last week, I stated that the playlist I made for that week was my personal best and that it could not be topped. Well, the same goes for this week. The same may go for every subsequent week’s playlist but I’m not making any guarantees. Who knows, I could sprain my ankle in the future and that could seriously affect my selection making abilities for that week. I don’t want to subject myself to such pressure but for the transition from Volume 4 to 5, I did level up. The bolded songs from the tracklist this week are bold. Avoid your Sunday responsibilities or dread your stress filled Mondays in style with this quality soundtrack for your life.

This week’s photograph symbolizes two things: the birth of the 2016-2017 NBA season and the death of Vine. This goofy, adorable, bucktoothed child became an overnight viral sensation by simply repeating the name of NBA superstar LeBron James.


This hilarious 6-second video clip perfectly encapsulates the beauty of the social media enterprise Vine. Founded in 2012, Vine was truly an outlet for creative individuals to express themselves with millions of people around the world, sharing clever jokes, brief, yet devastating sports highlights, and optical illusions.


Last week, Twitter announced that Vine will be no more. All short video clips will be saved for archival purposes, which is a small victory in the midst of such a grand and traumatic loss. Let us know on Twitter @hustleEVRYDY what some of your all-time favorite Vines are. The Vine eulogies have been incredible so far; tears (from laughter) have been shed.

One last thing…

*whispers* the New York Knicks are still a superteam.
