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.

Needed this. I was just thinking of what day I should slack off this week. I’m working towards toning and lifting my butt, and shaving my saddlebags. Squat city chick…squat squat city chick…

Love it! …I also like MC Lyte’s Wonder Years where she raps, “when im near pull up a chair let me explain how i maintain the youthful glow. for you that dont know its called h2o so stop asking when i walk by how i look so young and stay that fly. It’s elementary kick the liquor when you turn dirty thirty the rest is a secret so i keep it for the worthy.” Classic.
