In 2006, it was Rick Ross' "Hustlin'."
In 2007, I have two "get money" anthems that motivates me to work hard and achieve my life
Rich Boy -- "Throw Some D's"
Mims -- "This is Why I'm Hot"
The sad part about both of these songs is that they feature bullshit lyrics. But these street bangers do boast a head-nodding beat and an infectious hook. As far as I'm concern, Rich and Mims have the first two great anthemic tracks of 2007.
I just have to flipped the lyrics a little to fit my life.
When I'm working at the office and I'm behind on deadline, I say to myself, "I betta throw some D's on this assignment and get it to the editor."
Yeah, I know, "throw some D's on my work?" Hey whatever gets me motivated. As soon as I hear that Rich Boy track and I'm revved up. And yes, I do like producer Palow da Don's verse: "I never slip, I never fall/ A lot of ho's give me they numbers but I never call . . . "
As for Mims' catchy "This is Why I'm Hot" -- a slick amalagamation of snap, crunk & hip-pop -- I used the song to boost my self-aggrandizement.
Like, two weeks ago, when I gave two boxes of my old clothes away to the local Salvation Army, I walked around all day rapping to myself:
"This is why I'm hot/
This is why I'm hot/
I give back to the 'hood/
Most rappers do not/
This song is the shit/
And I can't stop/
This is why, This is why
This is why I'm hot"
Ha! Ha! Let me stop trippin'. Anyway, I'm just giving you a glimpse into how my crazy mind works sometimes.
So what is your motivational anthem for 2007?
