“In order for me to grow, I had to let go of some habits
And it’s easy to say I’m on now cause you see it, and it happens
But before it ever did I had to believe and get it cracking”
I love this song from the late, great Nipsey Hussle and wanted to share it as an Inspirational Jam for you all today. I hope it motivates someone going through the trenches right now on the way to their goals.
On “Bigger Than Life,” which is featured on the 2013 compilation mixtape Nip Hussle The Great: Vol. 2, Nipsey takes us through his journey as an artist and how he had to hustle to get to where he was even at that point. And it wasn’t easy. He had been making music for several years before that. He had to let go of some bad habits. He had to plan and work to find his place in the industry. The results weren’t given to him; they were earned.
This song serves as a serious motivation for me. It reminds me that it’s okay to toil and even struggle for your purpose. Nothing great comes easy. Rest in peace, Nip.
