Bryan Scagline: My top 5 songs to jam to and why

Jamming dama always seems more fun when you are listening to some of your favorite songs. Here are my top 5 songs to jam to and why. Give them a listen and see if they inspire you like they inspire me.

Keep House – Ball of Flame Shoot Fire

What Do You Mean – Justin Bieber

Antidote – Travis Scott

Lord Pretty Flacko Jodye – A$AP Rocky

Father Stretch My Hands, Pt.1 – yeezy

*BONUS TRACK*

Opportunity Cost – G Eazy

“Keep House” is the perfect song to just go in on. From the comfort of his own home(s), Sander produced the timeless Edit #9 using this song and it has forever just sent me into a cozy but vulnerable place to really center in on dama. s/o colin <3

I have always been a shameless Bieber fan- and with the single “What do you Mean” it just puts me in a discoverable feel for dama with new tricks that can really pop!

Anytime TJ and I are together, one of us starts to hum Travis Scott randomly until we both catch on and just go IN. Boys got BARZ (not at all*) Just a fun fact that always gets me / TEEJ extra hyped!

A$AP Rocky was used in the OG GT Prospect edit featuring 2 Bears, Aynedter, and Stodd.  Specifically, with Aynedter’s part, everything just clicked with his trick choice, flow, and of course the red/white/black color way from his prospect mod. Just a memorable edit for me, Aynedter and Wiens know my love of the steez!!! #10fttall #100lbs

Kanye does nothing but get me stoked for any occasion. With his newest album “The Life of Pablo” – the single “Father Stretch my Hands” has always stuck out to me as a song I look forward to playing and just vibing out to.

….and lastly for a bonus track, I have to place G Eazy up there with “Opportunity Cost” as one of my most relatable and vibrant tracks to play kendama to.

Thanks!
