Record Store Day 2017: Johnson's Jams

Sean Johnson RSD 2017

It’s Record Store Day – that day of the year where the world basks in the glory of its local independent music emporiums.

Casuals and hardcore collectors the world over are descending upon their favorite purveyors of the vinyl medium, so we thought we’d get involved in the fun…

We’re not short of music aficionados in the NYCFC locker room – there’s always fierce competition when it comes to selecting the prematch tunes which send our boys in blue out to battle at Yankee Stadium.

For Record Store Day 2017, we caught up with one of the new boys to get an idea of his music taste. May we present, Johnson’s Jams: The NYCFC’s goalkeeper’s top five records of all-time.

But first, an introduction from MC Johnson… Sean told “Just love dope beats and good lyrics. These albums pretty much cover every occasion, from pump up music to winding down and everything in between.”

Kanye West - Life of Pablo

Jay Z – Magna Carta... Holy Grail

Lil Wayne – Tha Carter II

Late Nights – Jeremiah

Drake – More Life
