I recently came to the realization that nothing brings people together quite like RnB and rap bangers. There I was, covered in other people’s sweat and cheap beer. To the right of me, a couple was grinding better than any I had seen before. To the left, three men in acid wash jeans were dancing their hearts out before the crowd. When “Drop It Like It’s Hot” came on, everyone dropped it simultaneosly and, naturally, there were smiles all around. I’m positive that in that moment, we were all thinking the same thing: this is my jam and these are my people.
