My Anthems '07
February 28, 2007
(both photos jacked from AOL. Shhhh!)
In 2005, it was 50 Cent's "Ski Mask Way." (R.I.P. Disco D)
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?
