You don’t need self-help books to motivate yourself and improve your life. Just listen to hip-hop and pay attention to the lyrics. We present Better Living Through Hip-Hop

This week Childish Gambino, aka Troy from “Community,” aka Donald Glover, appeared at the SXSW music festival and is the headlining performer for the 2014 mtvU Woodie Awards, which airs this Sunday at 8pm ET. The 30-year-old rapper, actor, writer and comedian has already accomplished more in his life than the entire staff of Guy Code Blog (even if you include all of our freelancers). If you need inspiration and advice on how to succeed, he’s certainly a good source for it. We picked some of our favorite Gambino lyrics and hope they invigorate you to do something productive this weekend. Just make sure you get it done before 8pm on Sunday, cause you need to watch the Woodies.
