MTV’s new series “Washington Heights” is all about twenty-somethings following their dreams and passions and the dramz that comes with it — from family struggles to dirty crushes. The best part of the show, besides the relatable cast is the fashion and music. Definitely the music.

The show’s main narrator JP is a rapper and he helped pick songs for the show. We figured since he and his friends have legit taste, they would share their favorite song that gets them going — whether they’re werkin it at the gym or writing a song at midnight.
