Iman Takes You On A “Night Drive”

Iman Takes You On A “Night Drive”

“These songs are the ones that either represents me as an artist and person or that i just genuinely love.” — Yonkers rapper, Iman

***

“Wesley’s Theory,” Kendrick Lamar
Probably one of my favorite intros ever, so it’s only right I start it off with this classic.

“For My People,” Joey Bada$$
The message behind this song is how I feel a lot of the time.

“’03 Adolescence,” J. Cole
Motivation. Cole is one of my favorite rappers and I can relate to this man in so many ways.

“New God Flow,” Kanye West, Pusha T, Ghostface Killah
ONE OF THE GREATEST RAP SONGS (in my opinion). This song is so raw.

“U Don’t Know,” JAY-Z
The way JAY-Z rhymes was always crazy for me. The confidence, the way he puts what he says to the universe and actually made these things happen.

“Why,” Jadakiss
When I moved to Y.O. years ago, this was my introduction to Kiss.

“Song Cry,” JAY-Z
Classic. I mean, It’s JAY-Z…

“Open Letter,” Iman
I wrote this song as a reminder to myself to not worry about what other people are doing and to just focus on what path is already painted for me. Everyone has their own blessing at their own time.

“I Am,” Jorja Smith
Jorja talking real life sh*t with the beautiful vibes.

“Numb,” XXXTENTACION
It amazes me how X can literally do any genre and still make it the most fire I’ve heard in a while. This song just keeps me calm.

“Too Much,” Drake
Drake is one of those people that reasonate with people like me. I can relate to the stories and the feelings that he expresses.

“While We’re Young,” Jhene Aiko
When I feel like there is too much going on in my life, I throw this song on because it reminds me of a special someone.

“Welcome to Heartbreak,” Kanye West feat. Kid Cudi
I don’t think people give 808s & Heartbreaks enough credit. This album literally molded the sound of how music is today. Probably one of my favorite albums of all time and I lwill never get tired of this song.

“Mr. Rager,” Kid Cudi
ONE OF THE GREATEST SONGS TO EVER EXIST! Cudi is one of the people I look up to. He isn’t afraid to let all his emotion out in his music and you can hear his pain in his melodies. I will forever appreciate Cudi for his courageousness.

“We Could Be Free,” Vic Mensa feat. Ty Dolla $ign
I couldn’t stop listening to this song when it came out. So important for everything that’s going on in our society today.

“Baby Boy,” Childish Gambino
I love when I can hear your pain in your words and music. I always want people to feel what Im saying and make them feel what i feel as much as possible.
