This morning I had the privilege of listening to Lil Red’s track entitled, Godspeed. Godspeed, as defined by Merriam-Webster, is an expression of good wishes to a person starting a journey. We are all on a journey through this world. Lil Red wishes God’s blessings upon us as we travel along our own journey.
As a kid, my family had neither cable nor satellite. As a result, I’ve watched only two or three Dragon Ball Z episodes. My detachment from this reference does not diminish my appreciation for Lil Red’s work. In this song, Lil Red says, “God’s made a lot of movement in my life…. I made a lot of progress in my dreams but I’m wide awake.” I really like what he’s saying here. He’s pursuing his dreams- his dreams are becoming a reality because of the progress in his life.
May this song give you some encouragement today. “Time is a Luxury- one of the finer things” as Lil Red says. May you cherish your time today, fail to succumb to distractions and treat every moment like a luxury.
I love the rap style on his final verse. He switches up his flow to my favorite rap style. Make sure you listen to the whole song!
Remnants- always remember: “Never Gamble your life- Godspeed”
