We all have those moments where we think it’s a day closer to the weekend than it actually is. If you thought today was Thursday and realized it’s only Wednesday, this article is for you.

But don’t worry, here is a list of 12 songs guaranteed to put a little motivation and energy into your world to get you past hump day and through the rest of the work week!


  1. 50 Cent “I Get Money“- Sometimes you need to remind yourself one of the benefits of working; more money!
  2. Rick Ross “Hustlin'” – The only way to achieve your goals is to hustle, every day.
  3. Jay-Z “On To The Next One” – Just a couple more hours until you can go home, then it’s on to the next.
  4. Young Jeezy “Go Getta'” – ‘Cause if you don’t go out and get it yourself, no one else will.
  5. Puff Daddy ft. Mase “Can’t Nobody Hold Me Down” – Only person that can hold you down is you.
  6. Outkast “Git Up, Git Out” – The hook says it all.
  7. Young Gunz “Can’t Stop Won’t Stop” – You can’t be stopped. You won’t be stopped; even if people are trying you.
  8. Dj Khaled “All I Do IS Win” – Winners circle over here! No time for losers, so keep working and winning.
  9. Ace Hood “Hustle Hard”– Ace Hood calls this the hustler anthem. The beat and the hook alone should motivate you.
  10. Ye’ and Jay “Who Gon’ Stop Me” – Refer to #6.
  11. Tupac “Keep Ya Head up”– Terrible boss? Annoying coworker? Try to keep ya head up until you can change your situation.
  12. Biggie Smalls ft. 112 “Sky Is The Limit” – It’s only right to finish this playlist off with a classic. If this storytelling song doesn’t inspire you then maybe you need some other genre of music. Perhaps gospel/inspirational music?
