    Memorial Day Weekend is here. For most people, that signals the unofficial start of the summer and BBQ's with great music. Exciting music. Classic music. Sometimes its hard knowing exactly what jams are appropriate because there are so many summer bangers, so we over here at XXL have put together a playlist that you can bump at your BBQ. You might mess around and receive a standing ovation with this joint here. Throw some burgers on the grill, blast these records and thank us later. Grill em, grill em! -Khalid Salaam
