For many, music is a push factor against the demons of anxiety and nervousness before a competition. For others, a pre-game playlist is a "Secret sauce" used to stir up and release whatever is channeled within them in an effort to lead their team to victory.
Today we begin a new series titled "Gameday Playlist Vibes," which feature must-play pre-game songs from rising basketball stars in New Jersey. First up is Bloomfield guard Mike Ramos. As a sophomore, Ramos made the All Group 4 team and led Bloomfield to their first sectional title in 40 years. Enjoy the jams from the rising junior guard below.

Why I play music pre-game: The music brings me to a calm state and gets my mind set on what’s about to happen between the lines.
Why these are must play tracks for me: A-Boogie is my favorite artist. I also like YFN Lucci a lot as well. The Meek Mill song has great production and really gets me pumped for games. Here are five must play songs in my playlist gameday and pre-game.
A-Boogie - Not A Regular Person
YFN Lucci - Documentary
Big Sean - Even The Odds
Fabolous - Young OG II
Meek Mill - Blue Notes
