What I'm Listening to 1/4/2016

A weekly round-up of 10 songs I can't stop listening to, posted Mondays. This week: Harry Chapin, Gesaffelstein, Dr. Dre, and more choices that have absolutely nothing to do with one another. 

Honorable non-Spotify mention of the week: "FADE" by Kanye West. Two Kanye singles in two weeks? Happy New Year, indeed. Now if only that album would drop...

"Facts" - Kanye West

For the second year in a row, Kanye graced NYE with a surprise single. Borrowing flow from Drake and Future's "Jumpman", the new song is essentially a brand vs. brand diss track. The conflict: Kanye/YEEZY (not adidas, notably) vs. Nike. 

You bet I hijacked the party's aux cord the second this dropped.

Listen to "FACTS" at the link below, and let me know what you think.
