The Playlist God is back and I am here to help your team win more basketball games this season. My jump shot may be a bit rusty, but my selection game is on point. It is vital to get the right energy and camaraderie going before your team takes the court this upcoming season.

It has been a slow summer for music as artists are on tour and performing at festivals in front of thousands of fans. Besides the surprise mixtape/project/album–or whatever you would like to call it from Drizzy and Hendrix–not much music has dropped. Well, at least not much good music. Mac Millions released a project called GO:OD AM that was certainly overshadowed by WATTBA, but it’s definitely a tape you need in your rotation. I’ll be honest, I haven’t given Fetty’s new album a proper listen yet, so I cannot give it the review it deserves. I am still not done with “679,” “Trap Queen,” and “My Way.” For immediate new music, the clouds are dry, the air is dirty, and the people are fiend-ing. Let’s hope it’s a Cole winter.
Whether you are a teenager about to play in your first AAU game or a professional NBA player in your 10th season, this is the perfect playlist for you.
