The House On Sunday: All-4-One, En Vogue, Keith Sweat, Shai & Toni Braxton

by DG

If you have a nephew or little cousin make sure you hit him hard enough to make him cry sometimes. Don’t start feeling sad and guilty when he starts crying though. You gotta grab him by the arms, stand him up straight and make him wipe the tears. Without uncles that do these type of things, he might be dressed like Sisqo sitting in Marvin’s Room listening to Beyonce by the time he’s 13. Call your loved ones today and stay grounded as you end and start a week.

All-4-One – I Swear

En Vogue – Don’t Let Go (Love)

Keith Sweat – Twisted

Shai – If I Ever Fall In Love

Toni Braxton – You’re Makin’ Me High

The House On Sunday: Babyface, Levert, Luther Vandross, Michael Jackson & The Isley Brothers

by DG

This playlist comes directly from my uncle’s basement. When I was younger, he would send my cousins and I to the store every Sunday to buy new albums. He had all the new music but still played Luther Vandross and Levert no matter what. Those are the type of memories that will last a lifetime. Call your loved ones and reminisce about some of your own before it’s too late.

Babyface – Nobody Knows It But Me

Gerald Levert & Eddie Levert – Already Missing You

Luther Vandross – Always and Forever

Michael Jackson – You Are Not Alone

The Isley Brothers ft. R. Kelly – Contagious

The House On Sunday: Call Your Loved Ones To Tell Them You Love Them

by DG

The worst feeling in the world is receiving a phone call and hearing someone has passed. The second worse feeling is knowing that you could’ve easily called or seen that same person yesterday. Don’t take your time on this earth for granted for tomorrow is not promised. No amount of money, parties, clothes, cars, drugs, sports events, etc; can equate to the life of a loved one. One love.

Boyz II Men – It’s So Hard To Say Goodbye To Yesterday

Destiny’s Child – Amazing Grace

Jackson 5 – I’ll Be There

Mariah Carey – Bye Bye

Whitney Houston – I Will Alwas Love You

It’s that day of the week again. It’s time to drive home halfway drunk, hop in the shower, make it to church late and sit in the back row hoping the preacher doesn’t mention you. It’s also the day to call your loved ones if you haven’t. Tell the people you love that you love them… they might need to hear it.

Adina Howard – Freak Like Me

Curtis Mayfield – Move On Up

Our cousins and uncles in the basement up at "The House"

Sometimes I catch myself acting like I can sing as I tap the wheel and nod my head like my father does every time he drives. There isn’t anything wrong with doing that until you turn your head and realize everyone in the car next to you is laughing. It’s Sunday so if you woke up listening to rap your dreams will never come true. Call your aunts, uncles, parents, siblings and cousins today… life isn’t short when you’re broke but you might hit the lottery tomorrow.

Earth Wind and Fire – September

Frankie Beverly and Maze – Before I Let Go

Jr. Walker and The All Stars – Shotgun

Stevie Wonder – Superstition

The Marvelettes – Please Mr. Postman

Curtis Mayfield Swag

These beautiful sounds were brought to you by way of Justyn Waves’ musical catalog.

Take time out of your day to call some of your aunts, uncles, siblings, parents and cousins. Stay grounded.

Waves with part of the female side of the 15th Story.

Sometimes we get caught up in the troubles of the world and forget the things that really matter. The people that love you and their health should always be the most important thing. The majority of the time we don’t realize that until it’s too late, so on this Sunday take time out of your day to call your loved ones or go see them. You never know when you’re going to get that phone call telling you someone is gone. Much love to my family, the people who support us and the 15th Story.

Al Green – Hangin’ On

Dustin Gibson ft. Veelo – Pushin’ On (Prod. Justyn Waves)

Luther Vandross – Never Too Much

Mariah Carey – Bye Bye

The Jackson 5 – I’ll Be There

Cousins together in St. Louis.

My father used to say, “they don’t make music like they used to” and I dismissed him by turning Master P back up. Looking back, I now realize that my favorite rap is inspired by that soul feeling from back then. Thank you dad, 9th Wonder, Kanye, Just Blaze, J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League and Dilla.

Curtis Mayfield – Give Me Your Love (Love Song)

Tom Brock – I Love You More And More

Willie Hutch – Aint That Mellow Mellow

Cousins outside The House probably up to no good.

You see those 3 guys up there? They were probably talking about something they had no business doing, but that’s what usually happened when the street lights came on. As I get older, I cherish and appreciate the times we had up at The House. I’ve also realized that the music we listen to today was inspired by everything we heard then. So in my effort to stay grounded, we put together another Sunday playlist of the music we grew up on. Call some of your family members and reminisce on the old times… it’s good for the soul.

David Ruffin – Common Man

Lamont Dozier – Joy

Mtume – Juicy Fruit

Vernon Burch – Joy & Pain

Willie Hutch – Love Me Back
