Weekday Wake-Ups: Week 4

by

We are now in the fourth week now of our Weekday Wake-Ups Playlist. Make sure you FOLLOW the playlist and save the songs you like so you never miss an update. We are keeping the playlist at a 15 song capacity, so songs will start to disappear each week. Don’t miss out!

This week we will be focusing a little bit more on hip-hop and rap music to motivate you on your morning commute. With a bit of a “Pre-game pump up” theme this week, this edition of the Weekday Wake-ups will get you ready to get up every morning and make the day your… B… you get the idea.

X Gon’ Give It To Ya – DMX 

If you like rap music, then I need not tell you how this track should be on any pump up-style playlist. Even if you don’t like hard rap music, this song would make your grandmother ready to run through a brick wall.

Don’t Wanna See Me Make It – J-Reyez 

This one is for all your haters. As you get older and begin to experience success in your personal/professional life, you may notice that some people are not as thrilled with your achievements as you are. This grind anthem will motivate you to push the noise to the side and focus on your future.

Nothing 2 Lose – KYLE 

KYLE, also known as “The Happy Rapper”, brings us this cheery tune that reminds us to be happy with what we have achieved, thankful for the things in our lives, and live like we have nothing to lose. In other words, live with no regrets, be confident in your decisions and in yourself.

American Dream – Skizzy Mars

Another testament to overcoming hate in pursuit of your goals. Skizzy Mars is using his talents to overcome obstacles, make a fortune for himself, and live life the way he wants to. Anybody who listens to this song should adopt his attitude and work towards their own “American Dream”.

Remember The Name (feat. Styles of Beyond) – Fort Minor

Another pre-game warm-up classic. This song perfectly breaks down what it’s like to grind –  easy to understand percentages accurately sum up the life of a hard worker. “Ten percent luck, twenty percent skill, fifteen percent concentrated power of will. Five percent pleasure, fifty percent pain, and a hundred percent reason to remember the name.”
