“Jack & Jill Ran Up The Hill”; Remember that? A time when life seemed so simple. Now we got killer locusts, deadly viruses and who knows what’s next. One thing I noticed about the pandemic, some people will not change who they are no matter what’s going on. I know I’m dwelling on the ignorant side and all problems might not have a solution, but if there is something out there that can benefit your survival and you say no to it? I just don’t get it. I’m confused. I didn’t think anybody would have a problem wearing a mask to help protect their health. I mean what do they make the mask for anyway? Exactly! To block harmful germs, viruses or deadly bacteria from getting in or out. Anyway, that’s just the way I see things. The other thing I see is, time flies no matter what! It’s July already! It’s hot! This mix is also hot, so let’s rock and listen together. Go!!!! Enjoy your holiday weekend.

Besides that, the pandemic continues and throughout the fight we still have to calm our nerves and get used to the new normal, whatever that is.

In the meantime we provide good music on hump day for you to chill to, while you’re staying inside and safe. It’s going to be a while maybe a lonnngg while before we even think about just going anywhere. Be safe out there and listen to the sounds of World Hip-Hop.
