The N List - January

When Nako finds something new and exciting the first thing she does is share with friends, but in 2017 she's sharing it with avid readers of The Passport.

 The N List is compiled of songs, movies, shows, eateries wherever she may travel, new recipes, books, items.

The N list is monthly.

Here is the first N list for 2017


1. CM9 

When Yo Gotti, Memphis-native rapper dropped CM9 I wasn't plan on listening because I didn't enjoy CM8 but I am so glad I decided to tune in. Songs such as What Happened and Off Da Top quickly became my favorites. You will not regret giving this classic album a listen.

2. Hu$tle '17 Journal

I featured this journal on the, Last-Minute Millenial Gift Guide list and it made the N List for January, this journal is a must-have for all female girl bosses in 2017. It will be going to every meeting with me this year. Journals can be purchased on 













A good girlfriend of mine always sends me playlists to keep me updated on what's new in the music world and on one early morning while grinding, I fell in love with Drake's newest artist, DVSN. Songs such as The Line and Too Deep are my favorites. It's almost safe to say he sounds better then Drake while I jam to his beautiful voice when I'm cleaning the kitchen or doing some work. Give him a listen today. 


4. Early Morning Hustle Mug

When branding boss Briana Yelverton contacted me about her Early Morning Hustle mug, I had to support immediately. Not only is she a #GIRLBOSS but she's a black owned business and those are my favorite to support. These mugs can be purchased on


5. In The Company of Women: Inspiration and Advice

This book is so amazing and the perfect read for 2017. You don't have to rush and read, it's a slow read but a jam-packed with vital information and inspiration.

I copped my mother one for Christmas and she was full of joy.
