    Ten tracks to bump at your Homecoming tailgate

    Here’s a playlist that’ll put a little pep in your step and get your head bobbing up and down during Homecoming weekend.

    1.  “Big Rings” — Drake x Future

    “I listen to this when I’m mobbin’ with about 15 guys,” Will Yao-Paul, a business freshman, said.

    No surprise here. The latest Drake and Future mix-tape broke the Internet after the two biggest names in hip-hop decided to collaborate.

    With hits such as “Diamonds Dancing,” “Plastic Bag” and “Jumpman,” this tape makes it a really great time to be alive.

    “Big Rings” will open egotistical wavelengths in the most modest cliques, creating an affinity for “some really big rings” and “some really nice things.”

    2. “Nightcrawler” — Travi$ Scott x Swae Lee x Chief Keef

    Swae Lee of Rae Sremmurd opens the track with distorted vocals, but as soon as the beat drops, you won’t be able to contain yourself.

    Travi$ Scott created an anthem for self-gratification that makes listeners feel like they need to order more bottles, more models and more hours.

    3. “Blasé” — Ty Dolla $ign x Future x Rae Sremmurd

    Blasé (adj.)—unimpressed or indifferent to something because one has experienced or seen it so often before.

    Want a chill banger? No worries—Ty Dolla $ign, Future and Rae Shremmurd got you.

    “Blasé” makes listeners feel some type of way with its catchy hooks. Its repetitive use of the word “blasé” becomes overshadowed by the simple, yet booming beat.

    4.  “Collard Greens” — ScHoolboy Q x Kendrick Lamar

    Who could forget this classic banger? “Collard Greens” was definitely the track that put ScHoolboy Q on the map for party animals and frat stars galore.

    “The song gets me hyped,” Noah Zimmerman, a mechanical engineering freshman, said.

    With ScHoolboy Q’s laid-back flow and bumpin’ production, this ambidextrous anthem has the best of both worlds—creating a relaxing atmosphere or classic nostalgic party vibes.

    5. “Up Like Trump” — Rae Sremmurd

    The rambunctious duo we know as Rae Sremmurd knows how to make music; the two know how to turn up. Everything these guys put out is an instant hit.

    Sure, their vocals can be annoying, but if you want to get a party started turn to track seven, and you’ll be sure to get “up like Donald Trump.”

    6. “Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye 2” — A$AP Rocky

    Looking to get everyone in your clique rowdy and ready? Bump A$AP Rocky’s “LPFJ2” and let the production set into your nerves.

    For former “Dragon Ball Z” fans, the beat is reminiscent of Cell’s theme song. So if you were digging “Dragon Ball” give this track a try. You won’t be disappointed.

    7. “Back to Back” — Drake

    Remember the Meek Mill/Drake beef? How could we forget the song that declared Drizzy the clear winner? Even your professor knows the lyrics to this song.

    “I listen to it twice a week. It gets me pumped up,” said Mallory Lamparter, an undeclared sophomore.

    What was meant to shut Meek Mill up became so much more than that; this is a song of self-assurance.

    Drake spits with pure vitality and punch over gritty production that should get everyone rowdy at your pre-game.

    8. “When in Rome” — Mac Miller

    When Mac Miller decided to drop GO:OD AM in September, he treated his listeners with a track that displayed his self-absorbance and cockiness.

    “When in Rome” presents a fast-paced beat layered with Miller’s assertion of self-dominance, which is somewhat similar to what can be heard in Drake’s “Back to Back.”

    Bump this in the whip to a high volume if you dare.

    9. “I Like Tuh” — Carnage x iLoveMakonnen

    For my non hip-hop heads, I have a special treat for you all: Carnage.

    When the EDM DJ released a track with iLoveMakonnen, it was an underestimated gem for all party-goers.

    The beat is strangely satisfying, and Makonnen’s use of the words “I like tuh” can get stuck in your head within a few seconds.

    Your crew is sure to jump up and down to this track.

    10 “We Dem Boyz” — Wiz Khalifa

    Want to make some noise? No matter what, this track will have you and your squad ready to take on the night.

    The infectious beat gets under your skin and aids you in reaching the highest level of “turnt.”

    Here’s a playlist that’ll put a little pep in your step and get your head bobbing up and down during Homecoming weekend.
