Browning Christmas trees, no more presents, I think we’ve all got the post-holiday blues. Lucky for us, L.A. native Nipsey Hussle is here to get us ready for the new year, dropping some pearls of wisdom and words of encouragement in Bigger Than Life, a hidden cut from brand new mixtape The Marathon. With help from a pensive, soft synth provided by Music Korner, an enlightened Nipsey sheds light on life struggles and self-improvement: “But I hope [your passion’s] not material, ‘cause that’s all in illusion.” In addition to the proverb-heavy verses, Hussle’s partner in crime, June Summers, makes an equally impressive contribution, lending his velvety smooth vocals to the chorus and the bridge. From the thoughtful songwriting, to the mood-setting production, Bigger Than Life sounds like a hit to me. What will the Booth think? We’ll find out soon. Listeners who are enjoying Nipsey’s fortune-cookie flow can cop mixtapes The Marathon (out now) and June Summers: Hookman for Hire (out January 28), both of which contain this standout record.
