Looking for a playlist for a dope kickback? Look no further! Here are some hot tracks to make your kickback dope:

Anderson .Paak – Heart Don’t Stand A Chance

Anderson .Paak’s latest album Malibu is full of dope tracks and “Heart Don’t Stand A Chance” is one of the best on the album. The groovy guitar solos and soulful lyrics from .Paak make this a killer track to chill to.

D’Angelo – Really Love

After 14 years of not releasing new music, D’Angelo gives us a beautiful guitar-laced track. His distinguishable sound gives vibes on a different level that is crucial for any chill playlist.

The Internet – Under Control

The Internet is a soul band signed to Tyler, The Creator’s collective Odd Future, whose soulful sound is as dope as the vibes they give. The smooth bass line and Syd the Kyd’s soft vocals make you feel like you’re riding a cloud on a summer day. Who doesn’t want to feel like that?

Duby Rodgers – 30 in A 35 (Cruisin’)

Cleveland’s own hip-hop artist Duby Rogers released his latest project “D.A.F.T. II” at the beginning of the new year and he didn’t disappoint. The AyyeDeesMM collective member gave a handful of tracks to kick it to, with “30 in a 35 (Cruisin’)” leading the forefront of the best tracks to kick back to.

A Tribe Called Quest – Electric Relaxation

A Tribe Called Quest is quintessential to any kickback playlist. In particular, this track has the ultimate jazz vibes and chill, yet intellectual rhymes with a hint of Afrocentric style that is pivotal to give you a unique, fresh feel to kick back to.

Frank Sinatra – The Best Is Yet To Come

Talk about a throwback! Sure, this song is almost a half a century old, but Sinatra provides cool bravado accompanied by the immortal Count Basie to let you know “the best is yet to come.” So why not kick back and enjoy life?
