SUMMER SIXTEEN: A Playlist for the Cookout

Happy 4th of July!

While I'm not huge on celebrating this day (see #whattothenegroisthe4th), today is dope for a few reasons. You get a day off work (hopefully), the family is around by the dozens (great, if they behave) and there's great food (no complaints here). However, there are a few things that can go wrong, too. Your cousin can bring questionable potato salad, the homie can invite that friend who talks way too much, or the music can be bad. In my opinion, the latter is the worst offense. 

While my family is equipped with our very own DJ (thanks bro), everyone is not as fortunate. And all aux cords aren't created equal. So, in an effort to help you save the family cookout or possibly score some points with that friend of a friend that's sliding through later, I've compiled the ultimate playlist for the cookout today. Sprinkled with a few of today's hits, our favorite jams from the 90s and the obligatory old school joints, you're guaranteed good vibes for the next five hours. 

Enjoy the playlist in its entirety on Tidal or Spotify. Sorry Apple Music lovers, the playlist won't share.
