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. Next up is St. Joes (Rutherford) forward Marc Dadika. The sensational senior is averaging 20 points and 15 rebounds per game thus far. Enjoy the jams from the Fairleigh Dickinson commit below.

On gameday to me its and all day type thing. Its pretty much on my mind all day trying to focus and get the job done. I Usually start listening an hour or so before the game to help get me going. Personally, i like to start off with slower paced songs then move to some faster paced more hype songs.
The first song I️ picked is "Everybody Dies" by J. Cole. Cole is definitely my favorite rapper in the game today. I️ picked Everybody Dies because he just goes off and straight raps
The next song on my list is "Dreams and Nightmares" by Meek Mill. Everybody knows this song and how hype it is, this one gets me in the zone.
"Ric Flair Drip" by Offset and Metro boomin is another one on my list. The Bass and Beat of this song hyped me from the first time I listened to it.
My last song is "Go Legend" by Big Sean and Travis Scott. I'm a big fan of both Big Sean and Travis Scott and this song gets me ready during gameday.
