It may be a little too late to love all over a New Years’ Eve evenin’ playlist, but Panda Magic has kept my resolution at the gym goin’ strong, y’all! Celebrate the return to those resolutions you already gave up with this beautiful mix of house, hip-hop, jazz, and funk.
You’ll be hearing a lot more from Kendrick Lamar in the coming months. The 25-year-old rapper from Compton came up on mixtapes that led to work with fellow Interscope artists Lil’ Wayne, Dr. Dre, and Snoop Dogg, and he’ll soon be appearing on Lady Gaga’s new single “PARTYNAUSEOUS.”
