Whenever I play games one of the first things I do is play some music that helps me feel motivated to win, there are a lot of racing game references since those are the games I mostly play. But here is a list of songs that I play whilst gaming:
12. Rae Sremmurd – Start A Party
This does what the title suggests it encourages you to party. This fun aspect track helps me have fun and have a mess around in the game. This is also especially perfect to perform skids.
11. Stormzy – Cold
This track is draped in hype from start to finish – especially when the drums and the trumpets come in coupled with Stormzy’s charismatic and vibrant flow. I normally play this song when I free roam. I will also listen to this song in real-life, when I’m in the town centre.
10. Krept & Konan Certified feat. Rick Ross
This song has a really energetic beat with aggressive drums and horns, coupled with an insanely hype chorus from Konan and aggressive flows from all 3 rappers. This song encourages me to go as fast as I can.
9. Logic – Alright feat. Big Sean
This is another triumphant song; the blissful trumpets add impact which is coupled with a well-made trap beat with synths as well. I also like the rapid flows from both Logic and Sean. I listen to this song when I celebrate success in my game.
8. Yung Lean – Crystal City feat. Asap Ferg
This song has a futuristic vibe to it along with auto-crooned rapping to add to that theme, I also like the bit where Lean and Ferg trade bars with each other. This is another midnight song I listen to when I’m driving a nice car in the middle of city lights or when I’m racing in the night.
7. Lil Uzi Vert – Hi Roller
This song makes me happy especially in the gaming spirit. I love the really bright sounding synths and the 808s which sound delighted to be in a fun track like this. The best time for me to listen to this song is when I’m in a car meet challenging people to a car drag race.
6. NF – No Name
Not only did this song get me into NF’s music but its best played when in a police chase (in the game of course). I love the cold tension building pianos coupled with aggressive drums. The best part of it though is his tone is aggressive and fast rapping. Another interesting fact is that this song has no swearing so it’s child friendly.
5. BTS – We Are Bulletproof Pt.2
This is the only song on the list that isn’t classified as Hip-Hop/Rap; it is in fact K-pop but does have a similar feel to a hip-hop song. All 7 members go hard on this song – even the singers, and the track makes it excellent to drive a Japanese or Korean car at night.
4. Post Malone – Rockstar feat. 21 Savage
This is legit one of my most replayed songs of 2017 and I have shown love to this song ever since it first came out. This cold and menacing vibe the track gives off is amazing, I also like the references too and the cold deliveries from Post and Savage. This is one of many songs that are suitable for a nice cruise in the night.
3. Asap Mob – Yamborghini High
I consider this to be a supercar national anthem, especially for Lamborghinis. This features the Rocky, Nast, Ant and Ferg showing of their wealth as well as their cars, it’s nothing new but they do it so well I practically play this song whenever I’m in an expensive car.
2. Travis Scott – Beibs In The Trap feat. NAV
This is no lie the best track for performing skids and drifts. This track has that motivation to do so, I really enjoy the eerie vibe this track provides and that’s exactly why I like Travis Scott’s music. The best parts for me is the distorted 808s and NAV’s verse.
1. Meek Mill – Litty feat. Tory Lanez
When I think motivation and success I think this song. Seriously whenever I’m hyped up I listen to this song. The beat is really energetic and this level of energy is matched perfectly with Meek and Tory’s verses. Whenever I’m in the gaming spirit anytime anywhere I will always play this song no matter what.
