Third Coast Mixtape No. 5: The Come Up

tcm-final5 This collection of songs is inspired by my neighborhood, parents' parting words before going out, nights that quickly shift into early mornings, missed calls, mismatched outfits, radio static that interrupts my favorite songs and conversations with good friends. They are moments that often capture transition and cling on to the spirit of being young and ambitious. This playlist is meant to move you; this is the come up. While most featured here are Chicago artists – Vic, Lupe, Noname – there are a few throwbacks and nods to those in search of a good groove and a shameless shimmy.
