Suaves Spotify Playlist of the Day 

Ok Word Press I have a confession. I am addicted to Spotify. Whether it is studying,working out, or just straight up chilling with whomever I come across with, Music in the process of being played.

So yeah here you go. This is what I’m listening to right now.  I’ll have a new playlist up every day, they will be different, and you will have a good time listening to it. 

Feel free to hit the comments section on music that you like, or if you think that the playlist is trash😂. Have a Suave day 

Let the Players Rest; Why the NBA should focus on quality instead of quantity 

As you can see over the past few months, there has been a rising concern that all star caliber players are being rested by their coaches,  so that players can stay healthy to play the entire season while avoiding serious injuries over the course of the long NBA season.

The NBA schedule can be tough on a NBA player. I mean look at the players, these men are huge. And if those gigantic beasts are pushed day in and day out, their bodies can be proned to aches and pains, which can lead to surgeries, and even more time off.

So what do they do now? You have the fans, of say Lebron James, who might live in Washington, and will save money to be able to see their favorite players in their hometown,  and if they sit out because they are constantly playing back to back road games, and traveling while being in pain, while the fan feels betrayed for not seeing who they mesmerize for hours on the TV.

Everyone is not happy right now. If the best players are not on the floor, the ratings will go down. I think the NBA should push their franchises to  posting their active players, who they are going to play in the game on that day early in advance, so if you are a fan and see your favorite player is playing in your city, then the fan would know whether or not the team is going 110% that game, not recovering from a long road trip.

The MLB and NFL have had somesort of roster set ups in advance to the games. These players need rest, because it is a long season, and a player must be ready to compete to possibly June if you are a member of a title contending team. 

The fans want quality, but the amount of time the players have to rest, it’s almost impossible for that to exist. So the NBA Has to do some serious marketing reconstruction in order to keep the fans and players happy. As for everything in life, we should be focused on quality over quantity. No matter what. 

Suave’s Spotify Sunday

Lady’s and Gentleman, we have made it to the last day of the week. So Suave wants to bring tradition into your life by starting Suaves Spotify Sunday, a day where Suave selects seven songs from Spotify to kee p your Sunday’s fresh and relaxing. Let’s get started 

  1. Crew-  Goldlink feat Brent Faiyaz and Shy Glizzy 

With Brent Faiyaz flexing with his melodic voice for the hook, Goldlink comes in and just murders his flow, showing love for his crew while also getting some clever lines like “girl your you can’t tie me down like Ray J said but no I’m down” great shoutout from the song Tie Me Down by New Boys and Ray J, one of my middle school favs. Shy Glizzy brings a turnt up vibe, combine all 3 of them and it’s one hell of a song.

2.  Saint JHN-  3 Below

Saint JHN interests me. With his feature In Teflon Sega’s Beretta Lake,  Saint JHN comes back and drops a single 3 Below,  which is just another great song from JHN, and I’m expecting a big 2017 from me.

3.  NAV- Good for it

NAV is blowing up, from his producing to his bars. NAV recently dropped NAV, a mixtape with amazing beats and songs, Good For it shows how NAV just flexes on everything and that he is good for anything that he is trying to accomplish. Although he is just “a brown boy with a bag” he is co signed with The  Weeknd, and with a Metro Boomin collaboration album in the works, this will not be the last time you heard of NAV in 2017.

4. Perfect by Ed Sheeran 

Ed did it again. This song is just a perfect example of what every guy goes through when they find the right woman. A true story of love and the confusion of what your emotions a person is going through when someone is in love, while making this song sound like a dope 1950’s love song, yeah no Ed you’re the king.

5. KYLE feat Cousin Stizz Want me back

KYLE is killing 2017 right now, From Doubt it to I SPY, although the vision and success started in 2012, KYLE knows exactly what he wants to do and is making the music he has dreamt about. Want me back is basically about all of your demons wanting you back, but knowing that your family and loved ones are with your side, showing you guidance from those demons, while doing it in the happiest way possible. 

6. Khalid Saved 

Khalid crushed American Teen, Saved Is a calm song, showing Khalid will always save a certain girls numbed after a breakup, and he just says the little things that can really break a guys heart, like “I hope you think of all the times… I was the only one who cared” I am currently going through this stuff and Khalid was spot on, Drake who?

7. Mac Demarco This Old Dog

I feel like it is an obligation, to always incorporate Mac Demarco into your Sunday playlist. His music is very calm yet hard hitting at the same time. if you want to catch some sun shine, while listening to some extremely soothing music, Demarco is your guy.

Hope you enjoyed Suaves Spotify Sunday. There will be more great songs next week, so don’t sleep on these Suave playlists next Sunday. Suave out.


Why the Mets should try to acquire Eric Gagne

Over the past years, the New York Mets have revitalized many careers, like Renè Rivers and James Loney last year. Seeing the success of the storybook ending events of both of them coming out of nowhere, and helping the Mets make the postseason, when at a point in time it was questioned to whether they could even come close to the wild card. Im sorry if we’re giving contracts to Tim Tebow (I love you) let’s consider Gagne lol.

Although Gagne has not thrown an inning of pro ball in 4 years, he shows that he has stuff left in the tank for Team Canada, throwing over 94mph with authority.

The Mets need one more started reliever, pending how long Familias suspension will last, everyone moves up in the ranks, and some may not be ready to be a big 7th inning or 8th inning specialist, Gagne brings a veteran mentality, while also filling the old veteran void, presented by Bartolo Colon over the past years.

It is reported that 5 teams have asked to see him pitch, I would not be surprised if the Mets were one of them, it would be fun to watch, and the Mets can find small ways to upgrade their already deep franchise. 

It will definitely be an interesting year for baseball, so stay up to date on anything sports or media related from PPF Daily. Gucci Suave out.

Bibi Bourelly is who We need; Stay true to Yourself

It is safe to say, whatever time period we are in ,there will be people who go through life, and people who question everything and are comfortable about discussion.

German born singer, Bibi Bourelly is exactly that. Bourelly has become a role model to the every day teen, and you really see that in her music. Her father, Jean-Paul Bourelly,  was an artist and has collaborated with other artists with his guitar skills, can really influence a teen.

But if you really look down deep, everything around us influences us to be the people we are today. Our emotions control our attitudes, and some days will be good, while some may be terrible, and Bibi preaches that in all of her music.

Her hit single Ballin emphasizes that to the fullest extent. She just writes about her life, while being extremely true and inspirational to the listener. Her latest mixtape Free the Real (Pt.#2) Is filled with good vibes and can show that whenever she drops an album, it will be sensational.

I feel like we are seeing more artists who get life, and they are searching for the perfect sound, and are really striving to make a difference in this world. So keep doing you Bibi, and show off some of the Ego on the way!

When Complex Beats you to the Punch; How Great Minds think Alike

Yesterday was a normal day for me. I started my day at 9am to hit biceps and triceps before school, as  I was loading up my pre workout I decided to get pumped up to the talented Atlanta artist 6lack, who although I have seen on SoundCloud, and Twitter, he has not really been on Complex’s radar.

So I’m jamming, snap chatting, people are replying like ” yo who is this kid” and I’m like yeah it’s 6lack, a lot of “damn this guy is fire” and they’re not wrong, but something strange happened

Out of nowhere I check Facebook, and Complex runs a huge story on 6lack, and Nadeska Alexis did an amazing job showing all of the aspects of 6lack. Complex’s platform can be presented to a large audience, and when you have that platform and really want to help your favorite artists get recognized, you can really mend the mainstream the way you want it to be.

Although Complex has always been fire, most of my curiousity has been focused on Jinx from Complex, who has been focusing on Pigeons and Planes. He has a wide range of taste in music, and he uses his platform to present the dopest music he finds, and wherever he is going to present his stories.

We need people to be weird. And I am willing to go the extra mile, like all of the people who we read every day. So that people can be enlightened on how much good music, and random things out there, we just have to find it. 

Why Freedom of Speech is at danger right now; Let Different POV’s Speak

No matter who you voted for, after this election, we have been living a world full of L’s. Some big, some small. And we need to articulate these emotions in a way that others can understand them. That is why the 1st amendment is so important

I don’t think our fore fathers would think it would get this weird, but the core values of the  1st amenement are one of the most important things that we need right now 

If you let comedians come to a college, and tell there point of view to college students, and a college pays a Man to show their students a different point of view on things, and some people go insane.

I get there is a lot of hate out there right now, and you can’t get over calling them “rascist,liberal” or whatever name you want to throw on them and make that much of a scene at a College, a place to obtain knowledge and various points of view, no matter how much you think you are making a difference, you aren’t

If you really want to change things in that instance, go to that lecture or rally and respectfully protest. Protesting is good, but if you protest for another person to not talk, you are making that priviledge of free speech in grave danger, and you yourself just made yourself a target to be silenced.

These rights are priviledges. We were so lucky, we had peaceful protesting, but now every protest turns into a war because nobody is showing respect to their opposition

No matter how much you hate your opposition, you cannot silence them. Because you are putting yourself at risk of being silenced.

This is only the beginning. If we do not grow the fuck up, then we are going to be easily censored, because we are not acting like civilized human beings. So treat others the way you would like to be treated, and enioy your day. Gucci Suave out
