For the Redskins No. 2 overall pick Chase Young, music is a big part of his life. Whether he is setting the mood in the car and or getting ready for a game, certain songs have helped him get to where he is today.

"The artists I have on this playlist are just artists I've listened to and a lot of them have grown on me throughout my journey at The Ohio State," Young said to introduce the playlist. "The artists that I picked are just the artists I like to hear on a regular basis."

In addition to the music, Young also gives brief explanations explaining why he chose certain hits. Many stem from his personal preference in music.

A rap-heavy playlist, a lot of the songs feature artists who rap and sing on the track. For Young, the diversity and smoothness of the beats and lyrics is something that helps him relax on a car ride or get in the zone before he takes the field.

Additionally, some of them carry a deeper meaning. Young is able to connect the message of the music to his own life. He enjoys the song F.N. by Lil Tjay not just because it mellows him out, but because the artist talks about his friends using him for their own advantage. 

A high draft pick about to enter the NFL with money and expectations, Young understands that not everyone he encounters will want the best for him. 

"I just feel like that plays a role in my life," Young said of the song. "There's going to be a lot of people out there that don't have my best interests."

Rapper Roddy Ricch, who Young has on the playlist, is someone the defensive end can relate to. Ricch has burst onto the scene as of late in large part due to his unique sound. In a time where a lot of music sounds the same, Ricch thrives on being different.

Young is going through the same thing as he begins his NFL career. The first thing many will do is try and draw comparisons as to who he could mimic in the league. However, he'd rather just be himself and become a star that way.

"Everybody tries to compare you to a player in the league now or a past player. You just try to mute those things out and be who you are and play your game," Young said. "Just do what you do."

When Young takes the field for the first time with the Redskins to warm up, you can be sure that these songs will be blasting in his headphones as he gets in the right mindset.
