November Releases: Jams That Should Be in Your Playlist
WHO THE HELL does he think he is?

Migos, Nicki Minaj, and Cardi B - MotorSport - Single

Released: October 27

Migos’ “Culture 2” is on its way and our first preview of the album is “MotorSport.” The track is a perfect musical cocktail, combing big-name rappers, excellent production and controversy.

Lil Xan - Far - Single

Released: October 31

Lil Xan has only been making music for about a year but has managed to amass a pretty large following, 680 thousand Instagram followers to be exact. “Far” isn’t a very special song, simple lyrics describing elicit activity over a nice beat. Despite this, the song still bangs.

Xan hasn’t made an official statement about releasing a new album or mixtape even though he’s been consistently releasing singles, this tells us that Xanarchy is near.

Rina Sawayama - RINA

Released: October 27

Rina Sawayama’s music is like a mixture of early 2000s R&B with Japanese bubblegum pop. When you listen to “RINA” your clothes will automatically get swapped for a blue Juicy Couture tracksuit and a pair of frameless tinted glasses. It will make you miss dial-up internet and playing Snake on your Nokia. You'll love every second of it.

Majid Jordan - The Space Between

Released: October 27

“The Space Between” is OVO Sound’s fourth release of the year following Drake’s “More Life,” PARTYNEXTDOOR’s “Seven Days” and dvsn’s “Morning After.” It does a great job at creating a relaxed atmosphere and is quintessential vibe music. This album is loaded with sharp and modern beats that still manage to sound like something from the past.

N.E.R.D. and Rihanna - Lemon - Single

Released: November 1

“Lemon” is a record that can’t really be described, you have to hear it to really get it. It’s like N.E.R.D. wants to give us something to dance to, but is also trying to send a message. Their forthcoming album “No_One Ever Really Dies” doesn’t have an official release date yet but is rumoured to be arriving soon.

Big Sean & Metro Boomin - Pull Up N Wreck (feat. 21 Savage) - Single

Released: November 3

“Fuck the professor, I'm too professional,” this track is the definition of fighting words. With the help of Metro Boomin's production skills and 21 Savage's bars, Big Sean is able to convince listeners into believing that he's actually "about that life."

yaeji - EP2

Released: November 3

“EP2” features five tracks that consist of baby soft vocals layered over New York house beats. It’s a little slow at first but speeds up quickly with “raingurl”, where yaeji sing/raps in Korean and English.

J.Robb - Soulection White Label - J. Robb

Released: November 3

Before getting into the tracks it’s important to understand who and what’s behind this EP. According to their website, Soulection is a music label, radio show and a collective of artists and creators who are attempting to increase the visibility of “meaningful music.” The “White Label” portion of the title signifies that the EP is a part of Soulection’s White Label series, a collection of EPs that each feature a different producer. In this edition, the producer of choice is J.Robb, a Baltimore based producer.

Maroon 5 - Red Pill Blues

Released: November 3

A lot has changed since Maroon 5 released their iconic genre-bending album “Songs About Jane.” Since then, the band has taken on three new members and has been primarily making radio-friendly pop music. “Red Pill Blues” follows the mainstream hit formula but somehow contains elements of old Maroon 5, which for this reason alone shows that it's deserving of being on your fall playlist.

Sam Smith - The Thrill of It All

Released: November 3

Waiting for Sam Smith to release this felt like forever, but it’s only been three years since his debut album. All 14 tracks of "The Thrill of it All” are laden with amazing vocals and intense emotion. Smith’s lead single, “Too good At Goodbyes,” embodies the album’s central themes: love, fear of vulnerability, and breakups.

Wiz Khalifa - Laugh Now, Fly Later

Expected release: November 10

Last month Wiz Khalifa tweeted about his upcoming project "Laugh Now, Fly Later," giving fans the title and release date. On Monday he posted the cover art on Instagram, confirming that the mixtape is still on schedule.

Eminem - Revival

Expected release: November 17

Besides the Cypher that he did for the BET Hip Hop Awards this October, Eminem has been keeping a low profile. But rumour has it that the rapper is planning on releasing new music pretty soon. Fans should be on the lookout for a surprise performance this Sunday at the MTV Europe Music Awards.

blackbear - cybersex

Expected release: November 27

blackbear’s mixtape “cybersex” is expected to drop towards the end of November, but he has already released serval songs from the mixtape as singles. The first single was released in October and the latest, “santa monica & la brea” was released on November 2. So far "cybersex” is coming in strong with its catchy chorus’ and inclusion of noteworthy artists like Tinashe and Cam’Ron.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
