I heard all of this fuss about this interview and actually watched people need to calm the hell down and actually educate themselves so they can understand what this man is actually trying to say.

Summer....summer....summer...summer! Gotta love summer music and this track does not disappoint at all.
Enjoy mi Amigos.

Nottz produced joint right here...we've never been big on write ups here at Appealing Sound and that is honestly the way that I like it.
Happy Camping :)

"Summertime" - Asher Roth x Quan

"Angels and Demons" - Kid Cudi

Alright so this track apparently got lost in the shuffle a few years ago and was supposed to debut on Cudi's debut album Man On The Moon: End Of Day. I'm definitely feeling this track, seeing as Mr.Mescudi has turned over a new leaf and all, this might be one of the last gems of old Cudi that we get to see.....

"Angels & Demons" - Kid Cudi
"I am so unstable"

DayToday Season 4 Episode 5

So i just found out that one of my friends actually follows this and it was pretty bad ass, considering he had no idea that APPEALING SOUND was my blog....this one is for you Keegs, thanks for getting me back to it.

Happy Fathers Day

Just thought I'd throw a general HAPPY FATHERS DAY to all the fathers out there and a really special one for my grandfather Byron Ricks. This man has been there for me my entire life through thick and thin. I mean it, this man taught me to ride a bike, play basketball, fish, light a fire, drive, you name it he taught me. The title grandfather for him just doesn't do him justice at all. He is more of a father to me than anyone ,and Grandpa if your reading this (which I don't think you will lol) Happy Father's Day, love you sir.

Not sure who this will reach…but my 13  year old COUSIN Fajr Abdul-Akbar is missing. It has been 26 hours since she was last seen. 
If anyone has ANY sort of information on her whereabouts please call the number above. She resides, goes to school, and was last seen in Brooklyn, NY with some classmates. If you live in the Brooklyn area, please keep your eyes peeled. She was wearing a white scarf, but may have since taken it off.

"Coolest In The World" - Jahlil Beats x C. Dot Butler

"Marvin's Room" - Drake

Been meaning to get to this one for a while but, It seems like every time Drake releases another "piece of his story" we learn something else about the young and talented MC. Mainly that he has some issues with women lol. Either way this track is hot. Enjoy.
