Staff Selection - March
March is coming to end and all those memories of Spring Break and St. Paddy's Day are starting to fade as fast as they came, and finals seem to be getting closer and closer. Luckily, the staff of Hand Me The Aux have put together a playlist of our favorite songs from this month so you can relive all of the high times and questionable decisions of the month.
From Kendrick's demo-tape Untitled Unmastered to SBTRKT's SAVE YOURSELF, some great music was released this month. A few up and coming artists released their first projects like Lil Yachty aka Lil Boat and Kap G. Lets also not forget that Young Thug finally released Slime Season 3, and Domo Genesis rose from the ashes with his banger Genesis. So you can say this month has been pretty good for music lovers.
Best Album of the Month
Untitled Unmastered - Kendrick Lamar
Kendrick Lamar released the demo tracks from his critically acclaimed album, To Pimp a Butterfly. Untitled Unmastered is arguably one of the best albums released in 2016 and these songs didn't make the cut for To Pimp a Butterfly, which says a lot about the talent and range of the 28 year old rapper. "Untitled Unmastered 2" is the staff's favorite song from the album.
Best Song of the Month
Show Me Love (feat. Chance the Rapper, Moses Sumney and Robin Hannibal) Skrillex Remix by Hundred Waters
Skrillex teams up Chance the Rapper, Moses Sumney and Robin Hannibal to remix Hundred Waters' "Show Me Love". This heartfelt song will be an anthem for the rest of the school year and the upcoming summer.
Best Debut Mixtape/Album
Lil Boat - Lil Yachty aka Lil Boat
Atlanta rapper Lil Yachty aka Lil Boat releases his first mixtape Lil Boat. We are forever thankful to Elen Pease for putting the staff onto Lil Yachty. From his hit single 1Night to the simply hilarious remix of Minnesota featuring Young Thug, Quavo and Skippa Da Flippa, Lil Yachty controls his audience's attention with his unorthodox melodies and authentic flow.
