Exponentially fresh.

I wrote a LOT last week and definitely burned myself out a bit. So this weekend has been dedicated to relaxing and trying to do all the things that usually inspire me, which means the music I’ve been listening to is the type of shit that motivates me. Maybe what works for me will work for you, too. I know it’s a long weekend for a lot of you, but that work week is right around the corner.

Jay-Z’s life story in itself is motivating. He came from Marcy Projects (which isn’t all that far from me), and is now an undeniably successful artist and business man with a fly ass shorty to top it all off. Don’t even front like you wouldn’t like to reach the levels of success that Shawn Carter has seen. I sure do.

“I could never live forever, but the voice will, always knew I’d be somebody that the world would feel”…and of course, let’s not forget that Alchemist is basically my favorite producer next to Premo.

Alchemist – Take A Look Back

Nas feat. Keri Hilson – Hero

Not only is this some good Premier production, but Reks has to be one of the most talented lyricists out right now. Classic cut off of Grey Hairs. I just wish this had a better video.

Reks – Say Goodnight

This. Shit. Goes. That is all.

k-os – Superstarr Pt. Zero
