In this episode, I had the chance to attend North Gwinnett’s basketball alumni day. I spent thousands of hours in this gym during my teenage years learning how to overcome adversity, take in constructive criticism and become a true competitor in every aspect of my life. Getting back amongst my former teammates and coaches gave me a chance to reflect on how my days at North helped me arrive where I am today.

r-lum_-r-frustrated

A newcomer to the RnB scene, R.Lum.R‘s “Frustrated” has the makings of a song to build a name off of. The smooth track coupled with his vocals always has the song getting airplay on Sirius XM’s The Heat channel.

The Breakdown

I was in the car this weekend headed to a basketball event in North Carolina and caught this one. I immediately text all my go-to music people including team members Jordan Davis, Donte’ Grant, and Alli Lhamon. Take a listen below:

#iTunesSounds: “Oh Wonder” – Oh Wonder – Nov. 7, 2016

Oh Wonder released their debut self-titled album after dropping a song a month from their in-home studio in London, England that they compiled into a full body of work.

By: Brandon Clay @PSBPopCulture

The Breakdown

I’m ashamed to say this album slipped right by me. I listened to their single, “All We Do” on XM a while back but didn’t even think to listen to the rest of the album. Rookie move on my part. In the past ten days, I’ve played it front to back 20+ times. For the record, I blame both Anna Grace Smathers and Rob Hicks for not giving me the drop months ago. That said, it’s always nice to find a complete album like this late and feel like you finally joined the rest of the music world.

Favorite Tracks

5) “Lose It”

***Disclaimer: I thought this was awesome. They invited five dancers to audition for our music video. What they didn’t know was that they were actually starring in the video! Watch below to see what happensโ€ฆ

8) “Without You”

11) “All We Do”

The Breakdown

PSBPopCulture.com Team Member, JD Davis, joined me for this one as Mac performed for right at an hour blending old favorites with the 11 tracks off of his latest album. His energy was good on opening night setting the place on fire. Miller drew just over 2,500 fans on a Monday night nearly filling the Tabernacle to it’s 3,500 person capacity.

#FreshStyleFits: OVO Jordan Retro 12 Collection – Nov. 1, 2016

Drake dropped multiple fashion pieces to coincide with the release of the OVO Jordan Retro 12 collaboration earlier this fall. From bags to headbands, there were a variety of pieces designed to match the shoe.

By: Brandon Clay @PSBPopCulture

The Breakdown

I got my hands on the shoes back in the spring but had to wait on the release of the full line to get the accents pieces to match. With a trip to Philly and New Jersey on deck this weekend for the Keil Moore Showcase, I decided to rock the 12’s with the matching Top Loader Backpack and matching Duffle. Special shoutout to my photographer Larry Rhinehart for capturing the outfit as only he can.

My swag different. My bags different. [shot by @larrywrhinehart] ๐ŸŽ’: #Jordan #OVO
