It’s truly amazing the effect that listening to music can have on a person’s mood. People usually choose to listen to music for two reasons. Either they pick are genre of music that matches their current mood or they choose a genre of music that will change their mood. This article contains a list of motivational power songs for the latter reason.

Listening to any of these songs will change your mood in terms of getting you pumped up. Whatever the reason you need to get pumped up for. May it be for an intense gym workout, a run or even an exam these songs that have been selected will do the trick. In no particular order here they are.

The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus – False Pretense
This song by The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, a band that formed way back in 2003 is fantastically motivational.

It is great for getting you in the zone so you can really get down to whatever it is you need motivation for.

Linkin Park feat. Jay-Z – Numb Encore
This song comes as a result of two excellent artists collaborating together. It was produced back in 2004 from their joint album “Collision Course”. It wasn’t a completely new song that the artists wrote together. It was two separate songs; “Numb” a 2003 single by Linkin Park and Jay-Z’ track “Encore” merged together. It works epicly and really helps to get you pumped.

Hadouken – Rebirth
This track is a little different to the other tracks that have been suggested. It is more quiet and a little slower moving. It’s one of those songs that you listen to as you are walking towards the exam hall or the gym or stretching before doing some exercise. Listening to it will get you into the correct frame of mind.

Ask Dangerous Lee: Do you believe that Blue Ivy is Beyonce and Jay-Z’s biological child?


Q: Do you believe that Blue Ivy is Beyonce and Jay-Z’s biological child?

Erica S.

Brooklyn, NY

A: My short answer is…YES, of course! My long opinion is this: Anyone who believes that Beyonce had a surrogate to carry her child and that Blue Ivy is not Beyonce and Jay-Z’s biological child is ignorant as hell! An image of Beyonce in a swim suit while she was pregnant was featured at DangerousLee.Biz and you can clearly see her exposed baby bump. Also, when looking at images of Blue Ivy I see the face of Solange’s son, Juelz.

Blue Ivy is a healthy dose of both of her biological parents, Beyonce and Jay-Z. Yes, she is light skinned (I mention this because ignorant people use her skin tone to prove their theory) but so is Beyonce, and ummm Jay-Z is not the darkest crayon in the box. I also believe that Jay-Z has family from the Islands, so like Beyonce he also has a mixed heritage…as most of us in America do!

I am sick and tired of people with the belief that Black people have to literally be black as tar to be Black. Wake up! Start by reading my three part article The Half Series: When Black People Look White. It was written two years ago, but continues to be relevant and unfortunately I believe it always will be.

Until next time, Keep it Dangerous!

Got a question for Dangerous Lee?
