Kyle

Throughout the night, the energy of the room kept increasing. Kyle pounded his bars through the mic, creating a constant hyper tangle of limbs, hair, and feet down in the sand. Kyle became a conductor on stage, throwing up his hands on a chorus and the crowd increased in volume, filling in the words. When he pointed out random fans in the crowd, on command, they let the lyrics flood out of every pore. He made sure we received the most out of him and that he received just as much from us.

No one can forget about the Cleveland Cavaliers after falling short to the Warriors in Game 6. Even with LeBron James bringing in 32 points and 18 rebounds on his home court, he could not bring it home alone. After giving himself the title “best player in the world,” he could not lead his team to victory alone.

Tyler The Creator

Although his music and productions offend people constantly, I admire the fact that he raps what he wants to rap about, and he produces what he wants to produce with no label director to answer to or a restrictive censoring agent.

I’m very comfortable with driving because I’ve had tons of practice with my parents on and off the highway.

Muse NME

I remember the first time I heard their song ¨Supermassive Black Hole¨while watching “Twilight.” The guitar riffs and the lead singer’s vocals led me to look them up on YouTube. Listening to songs like the one from “Twilight” led me to listen to others such as ¨Uprising,”“Knights of Cydonia”and ¨Hysteria.”I instantly became hooked to their music, and eventually I listened to all of their songs (thanks to Spotify).
