This isn’t a workout song. This is a pre-workout song.
The next time you’re negotiating with yourself, telling yourself that you’ll “exercise tomorrow”, that you “deserve a break”, that you “worked out really hard last week”, play this song. Listen to the lyrics and watch your self-pity disappear. If by the end of this song, you aren’t lacing up your shoes, shadowboxing, or enroute to the gym, then perhaps you had the song on mute.
Stic.Man, from Dead Prez, is an exceptional talent. Instead of writing a song about the hoes in his area code, he wrote a song (wait, a whole cd) about exercising, eating right, believing in yourself, and going for your dreams. I’m so in love right now.
