    Nas - "The World Is Yours"

    Best used: ON EVERY FUCKING MORNING OF THE WEEK.

    This seminal Pete Rock-produced classic is quite possibly the most encouraging song in the world to wake up to. Given the repeatedly rapped Scarface reference, it's probably worth noting that the song shouldn't be taken as encouraging a world-is-yours mentality in an exploitative Tony Montana drug baron sense, but rather a world-is yours-mentality that'll have you thinking that yes, you can get out of that bed, and if you're really bold, yes, you can go to work or school, and yes, you can succeed.
