A NAME WORTH INCONVENIENCE
Today JAY-Z releases his 13th studio album 4:44. Being the business man that is Shawn Carter, you could've guaranteed that this was going to be a TIDAL exclusive. I'm a longtime Spotify subscriber and I didn't think twice about activating a tidal subscription just for this JAY-Z album. Once I activated my new subscription it made me think of why do we go out of our way for certain people even when it inconveniences us and I thought of two reasons.
Not only do I regard JAY-Z as the greatest rapper of all time, I look at him as a guide for pivotal moments in my life. After hearing the snippets I knew JAY-Z was going in a direction that was much needed in today's climate, he was on the route to deep wisdom and deliberate introspection. Our love for our family and friends makes us go the extra mile because of the role and title they hold in our lives. That love is enough to make us do just about anything.
I'm such an avid listener of JAY-Z and I love all his albums. I even defended the album people call his weakest album (KINGDOM COME) as a stand out in his catalog. I knew anytime HOV announces a new album I would be in for a treat and more importantly he would meet my expectations! When we go out on a limb for someone more often than not we realize we would do the same. Also we believe that our expectation would be met in any scenario we go out of our way for.
Paying an extra 12.99 seems like a blimp on the radar for me because it is a chance to hear the greatest rapper express hisself in the most freest form. Going the extra mile for loved ones is second nature because that's what you do when they bear a name that's worth the inconvenience .
