This past weekend one of the greatest Football game finishes happened that you will ever see. The Auburn Tigers defeated their instate rivals the Alabama Crimson Tide in their annual Iron Bowl game 34-28. The Crimson tide attempted a 56 yard field goal with only 1 second left on the clock. The field goal was missed and Auburn’s Chris Davis returned it 109 yards for the dramatic win. The crowd went crazy stormed the field and it helped secure Auburn a spot in the SEC championship here in Atlanta December 7th.

I love it when a song instantly transport you to a time or gives you a certain nostalgia once the beat drops. This is the feeling I received after listening to Coming Down by PHZ-Sicks(pronounced physics) produced by the Best Kept Secretalso featuring TFOX. PHZ-Sicks currently resides in Woodbridge VA but the video details his Missisppi roots. Throughout the video he has family photos that he shows and this is a head nod track that might make you feel like you driving down the Interstate in an ol Cadillac or Cutlass. Listen to what he has to say below:
“The beat transported me back to the time I was living in Mississippi with my grandmother and family,” says PHZ. “I felt that since I showed my loved to them lyrically, I should do the same visually. Various family members are shown throughout the video through photos as the song rides along. We’re close to Thanksgiving and this is my way of saying thanks for being a important factor in making me the person and artist I am today
The track is off his upcoming album “The Moment” dropping December 3rd.
Today’s Sunday Grooves is brought to you by the lovely Jhene’ Aiko with the track Bed Peace. Childish Gambino is featured on the track and plays her love interest in the video (Lucky Guy).

You can find this song on Jhene’ EP Sail Out so sit back and Groove with this one.
The internet went crazy recently when footage of ATCQ’s performace of Bonita Applebum went viral. The legebdary group performed with Kanye West for the NYC stops of the Yeezus tour. Yes that in itself is a reason for us all to go nuts but when Stephanie Santiago came out with the trademark red, green, and black design that was immortalized on the Low End Theory album cover you have a classic moment. A lot of videos are floating around but my friend DJ Rasta Root was on stage and had a great view. S/O Jayforce for posting this on his site enjoy my friends!
