“Life Isn’t Worth It” by J Hustle 501

Hip-hop artist J Hustle 501’s latest single, “Life Isn’t Worth It,” offers a raw and introspective look into life lessons and moments of loss and hopelessness. Its unique blend of vulnerable lyrics, and a hard-hitting melody that echoes feelings of betrayal and hurt, sets it apart in the hip-hop world. In an era where lyrics have taken a backseat, J Hustle’s and Kevo’s songwriting feels like a refreshing throwback to the golden age of hip-hop.

“Life Isn’t Worth It” opens with a powerful instrumental, a melancholic piano and a haunting melody that immediately sets a reflective tone for the track. The lyrics, a lament about disloyalty and deception from those you love, resonate deeply. The opening lines, “I’ve been stabbed in the back by people I trust so many times, I gave everything just to end up with nothing; I gave my heart and my loyalty when they didn’t deserve it; Helped them out with no questions, but when I ask it’s a burden,” are a testament to the vulnerability we all share, having been hurt by those we never thought possible. 

The song continues with heart-wrenching lyrics from J Hustle and Kevo. Both are self-reflective, not just blaming others but also accepting their faults in their actions. This is commendable, as we often don’t look deep within ourselves after we’ve been hurt by someone.
