Life Lessons: Why Joe Budden Stresses You Be a Morning Person

Joe Budden says he's a morning person, and an insomniac. While the two don't go hand-in-hand, he says he refuses to waste the day. For a little #MondayMotivation to get you out of bed, let the rapper tell you where his inspiration to put in work comes from:

"When I was teenager, I used to just want to stay in the bed til 12, one, two, three o'clock with no job or no source of income and my mom would say, 'If you don't get your ass up and get out and find a job, you're just being a bum.' Ever since then, I felt like if I wake up too late, I miss the day. 

"I want to be productive. I want to be as productive as I can possibly be. I don't want to have to look back and say that I slacked or that I didn't grab the bull by the horns."

Come back to every Monday morning for inspiration from top stars to start the week right as part of our Life Lessons series.

After you learn a little something from the MC, watch him talk about his latest LP, All Love Lost below:
