Two things keep Spackenkill (N.Y.) sophomore Stanley Garrant particularly happy these days: golf and music. The golf standout said before he picks up his Ping i20 Driver, he’ll tune into hip-hop music to get his mind into game mode. Check out five songs that occupy Garrant’s iPod.
“A.D.H.D” – Kendrick Lamar
Garrant: The song is about the artist and how he grew up. My favorite parts are the lyrics and the beat.
“Golden Salvation” – Wale
Garrant: The song is about happiness and making it. I like the uptempo beat.
“Bound 2” – Kanye West
Garrant: This song is a mix of old and new sounds, which I like. I also like the flow and mix of the tempo.
“Holy Grail” – Jay-Z
Garrant: This is an uptempo song with a mix of pop, R&B and hip-hop. It’s got a good beat.
“Chaining Day” – J.Cole
Garrant: The lyrics are about making it as a rapper. J.Cole is one of my favorite artists.
