The 10: Summer Vibe
By Winston Brown
To me, it’s not summer until I hear “Summer Time” by Will Smith. Say what you will about the man, he made the unofficial anthem of summer. It’s the perfect summer song that fits any summer scenario. I know I can hop online and hear it anytime of the year I want, but it’s something to be said about hearing it on the radio. No matter how you try and fight it, there are just some songs that soundtrack a season.
I love 90’s hip-hop, so I tend to let that be my compass during the summer months.
I decided to put together a list of 10 perfect summer hip-hop records that stay in my rotation. They aren’t ranked, but they are sure to give you summer vibes.
1. “Electric Relaxation” by a Tribe Called Quest
I don’t think I could create a list that has to do with music and not include Tribe on it. They just make perfect music. But, this song is like final boss level fire. A banger if there ever was one.
