Joey Badass in his new single “Devastated”, opens up to us about a time in his life when he was devastated, stuck, and didn’t believe that he would make it out of his dark times. It can be difficult to invest so much into something, and still feel like you’re stuck. Does this sound familiar to you?
“At times I thought we’d never make it / But now we’re on our way to greatness / And all that ever took was patience.”
The chorus speaks volumes. YES, we always want things to go our way or want it to happen when and how we want them to, but life just doesn’t work that way. Soon, you must learn to stop rushing to get to your final destination and instead, learn to appreciate the journey. What you may not realize is that the journey is set up to make you wiser, stronger and unbreakable. Joey is sharing the message to continue to work hard, stay focused on your path, remain patient and you will be well on your way to greatness.
“Looking up to the Lord, we pray/ Trying to be my best each day”
Simple reminder to not give up. Look to God, pray, and try to be better a better person than you were yesterday. Um hello, this is the hip-hop we love!
