This week, DJ Goldilocks and DJ O$AP began saying their goodbyes to Radio Laurier and their listeners for this school year. Crazy to think how quickly the time’s passed…but as sad as it is to say goodbye to this year, they hoped their playlist of the morning gave you More Life.
That’s right, DJ Goldilocks and DJ O$AP jammed out this morning to Drake’s newly-released album, More Life. They discussed the album’s track list and some of the featured artists.
Currently, their favourite tracks are: Ice Melts feat. Young Thug (DJ O$AP’s choice), and Get It Together (DJ Goldilocks’ choice). They made special mention of the songs Passionfruit and Gyalchester. They also compared the similar beats to some of the songs in More Life to that of Drake’s last album, Views. Could there have been some inspiration stemming from the popularity of One Dance to influence Passionfruit?
There were a few interludes on this album, which was more of a miss for these DJ’s. O$SAP and Goldilocks agreed that the interlude with Drake’s mother on the phone seems to be an overdone feature that many rap artists are including on their recent albums, for example Mac Miller in the Divine Feminine.
Drake really impressed the DJ’s with some of his featured artists, especially Young Thug! Young Thug is one of O$AP’s favourite rappers, and thinks he is one of the most underrated rappers.
If you want to hear more of Young Thug’s music to see for yourself, here’s a few of his suggestions:

The trio made it an all-request Monday for their second last show. From Drake to Aaron Carter, they were able to cover a lot of bases. Since DJ Nix was absent for #MoreLifeMonday, we asked her for her review. She really loves the playlist, and seems to get something new out of every listen. She also has a strange appreciation for the way Giggs says “dirty dirty” in “KMT.”
After being in University for five years, the DJs thought it was appropriate to share their exam survival skills. They are:
1. Eat balanced meals.
You have no lecture, so plan and execute healthy, balanced meals. One carb, one fruit or vegetable, and one protein per plate. Your body will convert this into energy you can use to fuel your studies.
2. Get 7-8 hours of sleep.
This goes without saying. Resist the temptation to stay up all night and study. Plan your time, because it will catch up with you and affect your performance on the test.
Although coffee is a typical go-to while studying, drink lots of water. You should be drinking half of your body weight in ounces per day. It’s good for your skin and overall health, and even helps improve your concentration.
4. Take proper breaks.
Whether it’s taking an hour to grab a bite with a friend, reading for fun, or going to the gym, make sure to take breaks from studying. Cramming will only get you so far, and really, not far at all.
