Pursuit of Happiness, doh.

I previously blogged about Kid Cudi, releasing his new album "Man on the moon: End of day” and how much i dug the track "She Came Along." However, his other single is “Pursuit of Happiness” featuring RATATAT and MGMT = AMAZING. In my head, shit like this never happens and is almost too good to be true. Ratatat is my favorite indie producers and whats dope is, they finally got back up and did this new track with Cudi, still sounding like themselves, reminding me why I fell in love with them in the first place. annnnnd that's a big run on sentence on my part. Ratatat makes me swing both ways, i either throw a solo dance party in my room/car or twist up the stress-oh-la and drive to a chill spot and draw. I don't blaze anymore, but still enjoy them thoroughly. I've actually played "Loud Pipes" by Ratatat and drew to the beat/ drawing was some crazy abstract piece with neon colors and dots and dashes and slashes and some other cool rhyming words that I currently cant think of. That was when I was cool and actually sat down to i just doodle, if that. In conclusion...Ratatat is awesome, and you should be just as awesome and check their sound out. MGMT is just as good. Their videos are bugged out kinda, but dope. So I'm going to read "A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius" by Dave Eggers while you download these tracks:

Pursuit of Happiness - Kid Cudi, MGMT and Ratatat
Alive - Kid Cudi and Ratatat
Loud Pipes - Ratatat
Seventeen years - Ratatat

I fed you the first HellzBellz x Vans collab, now here's the other HellzBellz x Reebox collab....

Touch me in the morning and walk away....god dayum these are perfect! Laced up high with mellow yellow laces, equipped with studs, and a top down combo. Not only that but a insole with a inspiring “I’m ten steps ahead of you” hurts so good.
