Music really is for life.
A few minutes of sound can have such a lasting impact on one’s life; it’s quite amazing. This song encompasses that.
Having first stumbled upon this track during high school, it still resonates to this day as a much needed reminder of the role music plays in some of our lives. In some ways, it’s similar to prayer for the religious.
Featuring a legendary lineup of
rap music legends, this 2006 track off Hi-Tek’s Hi-Teknology 2: The Chip has the artists relaying what music means to them and why they feel, music is for life.
With the late J Dilla and Busta Rhymes offering commentary throughout the track, the lovely voice of Floetry’s Marsha Ambrosius on the hook and Nas and Common spitting some dope rhymes about their earliest memories of falling in love with music this track serenades the soul and (should) remind us all why we love hip-hop in the first place.
