While the quest for greatness requires a single-minded, almost obsessive dedication to your goals, it’s good for your health to take a step back and realize how small our strivings are in the grand scheme of things. Here to deliver our daily dose of perspective is Jigg, who outlines his hopes for the future while acknowledging the fleeting nature of success on new mixtape single Life Will Grow Sweeter. Beatsmith G4 continues in the dreamy, Chipmunk-sampled vein of the Olympicks-produced Keep Waiting, looping a string-drenched snippet of Barbara Mason’s Child of Tomorrow as the Miami rhymesayer waxes philosophical about his quest to break the cycle of struggle and poverty. After juxtaposing the plight of his peers behind bars with his own fantasies of luxurious penthouse living, he concludes the cut on a philosophical note: “I guess we just a bunch of moths chasin’ perfection when it’s nonexistent… What you think is important doesn’t matter either / when you finally realize that, life will grow sweeter.” Feeling this reflective banger? Then stay tuned for further leaks leading up to the yet-unscheduled release of Jigg’s Highgrade 2 tape.
