“They paid a $100 for my tape and it was f*ckin’ worth it!”
Never let another person tell you enjoying the success you cried, bled and sweat for is frowned upon. Making others feel less inferior to build yourself up? That’s lame as shit, but putting in work to spawn a dream into reality? That’s what we’re all here for in the first place.
Nipsey Hussle reflects back on the past couple of months and the accomplishments (and pitfalls) that came to define life on “Count Up That Loot.” The melodic backdrop provided by DJ Drew Byrd runs neck-and-neck with Nip’s boasts as the song’s illuminating factor. Nonetheless, it’s not difficult to imagine Hussle and his team playing this record at loud volumes on New Year’s Eve with bottles and blunts in rotation.
Hard work can never be fully appreciated without moments of celebration sprinkled in between.
