Whether you’ve got an intense weight room workout or a big game later this week, get your mind right with a few tunes to help keep you going.
We hit up Middletown (Middletown, Ohio) quarterback and Ohio State committ Jalin Marshall to find some beats that put him to work. Check out these hip-hop tracks shuffling on his playlist.
“I Remember” — Tyga
It’s got a nice rip. When I hear it, I think about what I’ve done in past games and try to recapture those moments in the next game.
“Fear” — Drake
The song has a slow-tempo, which calms me down and helps me focus. The hook is “please don’t be scared of me.” I sing this song out loud to let the other team know it’s OK not to be scared about what’s about to happen.
“Let It Go” — Ace Hood
The song has a fast beat with a nice bass. I listen to this right when I get on the bus [on the way to a game].
“Wish You Would” — Lil Wayne
All the songs I listen to are basically to get me hyped before a game. I visualize scoring touchdowns and just making things happen.
