I’m throwing it back to 2004 when I was in the beginning of 8th grade and would only listen to The Garden State Soundtrack, Oh, Inverted World by The Shins and Damien Rice’s O. This is back when my friend’s told me to stop listening to “depressing” music (aka it was too slow for them). I went through weird music phases; the following year the only thing I would accept for my birthday was Kanye West’s Late Registration and in between then I was jamming to G-Unit, more specifically my favorite member— The Game. Enjoy my 8th grade jams and feel free to post your own #tbt playlists below.
