Sorry if you clicked on this thinking that "Boombox 3.0" was going to be about my new hip-hop album of the same name being produced by the RZA. We're totally in talks for a collabo though.
No, I'm here to talk about the different ways Brooklyn citizens listen to music. Many people use iPods. Some people, a home stereo. Some people have invested so much money in their car's speaker system that even when they're not driving they'll just park their car, turn it on, pump the tunes, and be able to hear their sweet rockage up and down the block.
Not the guy in 1R though. No, my neighbor down in 1R has decided that all that shit is for pussies. 1R has created a new musical delivery system and I don't know how it can be beat. You wanna REALLY enjoy "Gasolina?" Here's how he does it:
1. Buy a bunch of sweet speakers and sub-woofers for your home stereo.
2. Insert latest Daddy Yankee album into the CD player.
3. Turn everything up as high as it can possibly go. If you do it right, you won't even be able to stand in the room without rupturing your ear drums and suffering a seizure.
4. Open your windows.
5. Now, STAND OUTSIDE YOUR APARTMENT AND ROCK OUT WITH YOUR NEW HOUSE-SIZED BOOMBOX!
The best part is, you don't even need a first-floor apartment to do this! Even if you live higher up, you can just stand on the fire escape!
This is for real, though. This dude from 1R stands outside ALL DAY and listens to his music. It's pretty incredible. I would try it, but I think the neighborhood is more comfortable with reggaeton than my Ween/Slayer megamix.
