Hip-hop has a gritty and showy property that makes it the ideal genre for hustler anthems. Every rapper from 2 Pac to 2 Chainz has made music to inspire the hustlers to keep grinding, but Jaye IV’s new single, “Hustle”, expands on the popular narrative to include themes of trust and mental health.
Over a bass-heavy beat trap beat Beatsbyhits produces with layers of synth harmonies and scatting hi-hats, Jaye IV performs his inspiring set, dishing out a list of fortune-cookie esque advice to listeners; “What you sow is what you rip/Better be careful what you sip/ Take it easy, do not hurry/ Time don’t wait for nobody/ If you’re feeling fucked up, better talk to somebody”. Though “Hustle” is inspired by the harsh realities of life, Jaye IV’s inspiring performance makes a rapturous bop out of it.
