I Used to Feel So Devastated

"At times, I thought we'd never make it. But now we on our way to greatness. And all that ever took was patience"

- Joey Bada$$, DEVASTATED

This is one my favorite rap songs of all time.

1) It sounds amazing 2) I love the message

I'm the kind of person that usually enjoys a song for the beat or the hook initially and then if I like that, I dive deeper into the lyrics.

And that's exactly what happened with this song.

It came out when I was in college and we'd have it playing at every party and it just brings back good memories.

But I never really paid attention to the lyrics and now that I have, I love it even more.

I'll never forget when I passed my Series 65 in May 2020 to become a financial planner. As soon as I walked out of the building and got to my Jeep, I rolled the windows down and played this song on repeat as loud as I possibly could on the drive home.

This line - "At times, I thought we'd never make it. But now we on our way to greatness. And all that ever took was patience" - means everything to me because it's basically a reflection of the past ~2 years of my life.

Slow down, be patient, and play the long game.

Your time's coming.
