Heavy Rotation: The “$100K Pyramid” Playlist

One of the best parts of my job is that I get to be a part of The $100,000 Pyramid. As the host, I get to hang out with my friends, laugh a lot with the contestants (and make some of them really happy), crack some (not always good) jokes, and just generally have a great time. Of course, I have a backstage ritual to get myself ready for all the fun, too, and you guessed it—it involves a playlist. You know nothing gets me going like spinning my favorite tunes and my “$100K Pyramid” Playlist on Spotify is no exception. There’s some solid “oldies” (if you can call them that), like Public Enemy’s “Don’t Believe the Hype”, “Money for Nothing” by Dire Straits, and Curtis Mayfield’s “Move On Up”. There are a few tracks by the likes of Cardi B, Wiz Khalifa, Post Malone, Childish Gambino, and Chance the Rapper. And of course, what seems to be the official song of summer (and a tune I find impossible to get out of my head), “Old Town Road”.
