This weeks beautiful hip-hop song is Too $hort's "Gettin' It". It goes along with what I was talking about in the earlier post about getting something out of your life. He grew up in Oakland, sold his own tapes out his trunk, never lost sight of his goals and was soon signed to a major label. After the release of "Gettin' It" (Album Number Ten) in 1996, Too $hort decided to retire.
"You gotta lot a dreams but you can't get out
The first thing you need to do is set your self some goals
Think positive, everything else is old
and work hard, never stop hustlin'..."
