Seems like dark times so would love a playlist of songs to keep me motivated and optimistic.

I realize I'm posting songs that live on the razor's edge of uplifting and corny.

Because you don't have to be craving negativity to be turned off by empty platitudes and trite reassurances. Just thinking about songs for this post, I've censored myself a lot because a lot of songs I find uplifting would probably be seen as sad by some, because they go into the loss and pain that people had to go through to get that hard won perspective that I find truly uplifting. When you're going through some shit, you need to hear something authentic and earned, and that's hard for any artist to pull off in an uplifting way, rappers included. And even if it could be construed as corny, to paraphrase Mos Def, there are worse things than being corny.

And agree 100% on that album.

Older songs like Dreams, When Everything Is New, Still Lives Through, etc…they’ve got a lot of them.

But could make a long weekend of it. Was planning on a Boston trip in 2020 but that got shut down with COVID, so definitely catching a show on this run where I don’t have to fly to NC to do it.

The first half lists the trauma and the second half lists how to overcome it. Beautiful song that often chokes me up.

I know people generally have mixed feelings about this one but I've always loved it, and thought it was the better of the two versions. The beat and the content are the definition of uplifting.

This may be better described as "nostalgic" than uplifting but I think it qualifies as both.

Was this even a modest hit back then? LV would have been coming off Gangstas Paradise and Treach was a star then. Did Tommy Boy just drop the ball?

In response to Reply # 0


          

This one's weirdly uplifting to me, cuz even tho a lot of the lyrics are focused on people trying to bring you down, I think the ultimate message is self-reliance and having the confidence to remain above the fray to rise above all the negativity that may surround you. I love this song endlessly.

He’s got better songs, but in terms of getting a great and uplifting song to pop on radio and video - he really hit it out of the park with this one.

One of my favorite 9th Wonder beats, and what’s more uplifting than a trip to the record store, cracking that album open, and giving it those first listens? I love this song.

I tend to favor the DYWM-TFA run, but How I Got Over is an album that hit me hard and this was THE song off it to me. Damn, all 3 of them knocked it out of the park with the relatable and uplifting verses.

3 song stretch on any of their albums IMHOP. I thought about it for this list but the lyrics are a bit dark.

The first Phryme album is one of the best rap albums of the 2000’s to me, but this is still Royce and Premier’s best song IMO. Powerful stuff.
