Inspirational Jam: “Bigger Than Life”-Nipsey Hussle

“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.

Take a listen to the song below.

Words Of Wisdom: “Just Don’t Quit”-Nipsey Hussle

Many have heard and are mourning the murder of rapper Nipsey Hussle. I didn’t listen to a lot of Nipsey’s music but I respected his hustle, intelligence, and the things I would always hear that he was doing for his community. I had planned to share this Words Of Wisdom clip from him in a few weeks, but I want to share it today in his memory. I hope this motivates someone today.

In this clip from an interview with radio host Big Boy, Nipsey talks about how he refused to quit on his goals, no matter his emotions. He kept going because he knew that he would ultimately reach the finish line. He even named his clothing line, The Marathon Clothing, because of that mentality. He didn’t give up doing what he loved and giving his all until the very end.

What separates those who make it and those who don’t is that the victors don’t give up. No matter how tough it gets. No matter how tired and frustrated you are. It really is a marathon. You have to pace yourself. Take short breaks when needed and continue the race. You may not reach the goal for a while, but you’ll definitely lose if you quit.

Watch Nipsey’s words of wisdom below. Thoughts and prayers go out to his family. RIP.
