15 Rappers That Put In Work – XXL’s 9-to-5 Anthems
Blu & Exile “Blu Collar Worker”
Some women are just high maintenance, not the ideal situation for broke and aspiring rappers. Cali wordsmith Blu details the struggles trying to maintain his relationship, while balancing his bank account. He pleads on the hook, “Please don’t take it personal/But I gotta go and work some more/And I know deep down it hurts your soul, but I’m a blu collar worker, girl.”
Seemingly, in an effort to pick up some waitresses while on tour, indie rap superstar Slug wrote a theme for the working girls to deal with all the slobs they’re forced to serve daily. Nice job.
dead prez “Hell Yeah”
M-1 and stic.man prove that hustlin’ is work, too. On the last verse to this track, stic spits about stealing money out the cash register and jacking merchandise from the stock room. “I’m not the one to kiss ass for the top position/I take mine off the top like a politician.” Looks like, crime does pay.
