Stay Tuned: Balaram Stack Playlist 036: When smoke pours out of tinted car windows, it usually sounds like this inside

what youth stay tuned balaram stack music

During filming of Balaram’s “4 Cities” vid we heard a lot of good music we don’t normally hear. At bars, in cars, at Balaram’s house, on the train. The kind of shit that kind of makes you want to party. Modern hits mixed with classic hip hop. Very New York. Very sick. At certain times we’d be zipping through the city in one of his friend’s fast cars, vape smoke flying through the air, and these crunchy tracks pounding on the speakers. Your weekend just got louder.

Big L: “Put it on”

Meek Mill: : “Blue Notes”

Post Malone: “I Fall Apart”

Want to know what gets Chippa hyped to huck? Sounds like it’s ’90s punk and hip hop…and we’re just fine with that. Lagwagon, Millencolin and a little splash of A$AP. Sounds like Chip. Energetic, explosive with a fuck ton of pop.
