Music Is For Life

One of the most underrated songs to come out in a long time.

Music For Life is Hi-tek, Nas, Common, J Dilla, Busta Rhymes and Marsha Ambrosius.

Busta doesn't really rap, he sort of just speaks, and he says this:
Now, you know, this is serious thing behind the music that we're doing
It's like.. music, for me man, it mean, it means everything, feel me
You know when we going through, our personal strifes in life
You'know'what'I'm'sayin', we get up in that studio
close that door, lock ourselves in, that little four-wall space man
Get in the vocal booth and become whoever you wanna be
Express whatever you wanna feel, you'know'what'I'mean?
When you going through your most frustrating time in life
You'know'what'I'm'sayin', you can realize that..
When you can't find nobody else to speak to
You can speak through the music
Help other people feel your pain, your struggle, your passion
You'know, what you live and die for, your values in life
You'know'what'I'mean?, music man
Is the voice of every being in the Universe
What God had provided for us to communicate, when all else fails
It's what allows us to be able to connect
With touching our hearts & the soul of the streets.

and Hi-Tek has a line in his verse where he says:
When I get stressed out, it's my sanity.

I can't count the amount of times I've listen to 2Pac's "Me Against The World" and heard Pac say:
That's right
I know it seem hard sometimes but uhh
Remember one thing
Through every dark night, there's a bright day after that
So no matter how hard it get, stick your chest out
Keep your head up, and handle it
