For Jerome Grant, (Sweet Home Café, Washington, D.C.) every song is fused to a person or moment or feeling — the backbone of any good mixtape.
"So Many Details," Toro y Moi
If only I could wear a turtleneck while cooking.
"Come Down," Anderson .Paak
Early morning rush hour bike ride to work…effing D.C. drivers…
"Show You The Way," Thundercat
Throwback styling at its best! Michael and Kenny’s beard game plus Thundercats afro = WOOOOOOOO!!!* (*in my Ric Flair voice).
"Saint Pablo," Kanye West
Kanye for President 2020.
"American Dreamin," Jay-Z
And that, my friends, is why America is great! Keep dreamin'!
"Big Tymin (Remix)," Nef the Pharaoh
Me and my girl jam this on the way to Napa during our vacays. S/O Bay Area!
"Keep You in Mind," Gourdan Banks
The love my kitchen crew at Sweet Home Café has for our guest.
"Wanna Know (remix)," Dave ft. Drake
When you read that one bad Yelp review…
"Set Adrift on Memory Bliss," PM Dawn
Soundtrack to the good times at Mitsitam Café. S/O Big Steve, Will and Miriam!
"Diamonds and Wood," UGK
Country rap tunes at its finest! RIP Chad.
"No Less," SG Lewis and Louis Matters
Smooth, buttery, and soulful like a dab of ranch!
"Ocean Views," Nipsey Hustle
Days off sitting on my balcony drinking Hibiki with my dogs.
"Easy Lover," Phil Collins
One of my favorite Miami Vice episodes was “Phil the Shill” starring Phil Collins.
"Top Shotter," DMX, Sean Paul, Mr. Vegas
Long night services in St. Croix when I only survived off of Red Bulls and bottles of Belvedere…the good ole days!
"Same Ole G," Ginuwine
Let’s not forget that this is the guy that gave you the song PONY ... just sayin’.
