Most of the hip-hop artists had been through a troubled life before making it big in the music industry. This is reflected in the lyrics of some of their songs. In their songs, they like to boast about fast cars and some expensive stuff they own. Perhaps this is one of the reasons why the hip-hop genre is liked by so many individuals.
A few of their songs talk about getting rich and can be associated easily with gambling. If you like gambling online, the lyrics of these songs will surely inspire you to place your bets. Given below are some of the songs from the hip-hop genre that have been inspiring a lot of gamblers:
1. Mo Money Mo Problems by The Notorious B.I.G.
This song by The Notorious B.I.G. (stage name of Christopher George Latore Wallace) featured Ma$e and Diddy. It was released after Christopher’s death and talks about the troubles one encounter after becoming an affluent individual.
The song went on to become one of the biggest hits in the history of hip-hop. If you love gambling, you’ll certainly like this song. The song warns you about the dangers of getting too greedy. So, the song would teach you responsible gambling as well.
2. Vegas by Kendrick Lamar
Vegas combines the thrill of gambling in casinos and Lamar’s feelings about a woman. It tells how he’ll attract the girl and uses some popular games as metaphors for this. In this song, Lamar lets you know how far he’ll go to woo the girl.
The song talks about how he’ll gamble with life. He says he’s also willing to go to hell to be with his love. If you’re in love with someone and also with gambling, this would be a perfect song for some inspiration.
3. I’m So Paid by Akon
Featuring Lil Wayne and Young Jeezy, this is a fantastic hip-hop song by Akon. There are parts of the song’s lyrics that will surely serve as an inspiration for gamblers. One of them says he’ll keep trying to reach the top.
It also says he’ll do that no matter how much one wants him to fail. There are other lines in this song that may not be motivational, but they talk a lot about money. Some of them may even sound like he’s trying to show you how rich he is.
4. It Was a Good Day by Ice Cube
In It Was a Good Day, Ice Cube talks about his ideal day. This day involved having a breakfast with no pork, encounter with a girl, and gambling. The lyrics doesn’t say something significant. It’ll come across to you as some random talk, but it also says something about luck.
He says he picked up the cash flow after rolling the sevens and elevens. A blogger talked about this song in 2012 and the post generated a lot of publicity. This inspired a campaign on the internet to put Ice Cube’s name on a blimp.
5. Life is a Gamble by Big K.R.I.T.
Just like Kendrick Lamar’s Vegas, the lyrics of this song uses gambling as a metaphor. The lines in Life is a Gamble convey some deep messages. However, they come with reference to gambling. The song talks about how you make bets on your life. Big K.R.I.T says how he rolled the dice and won in life, but others won’t be always that lucky. The song comes from the album King Remembered In Time and it is what K.R.I.T stands for. This is the only song that was not produced by Big K.R.I.T himself.
