Nipsey Hussle's Marathon Mondays, his weekly drop of new music, continues with "I Don't Stress," an inspirational and sunrise-colored track. The L.A. rapper uses his own formidable struggles – from the pressures of the streets to the pressures of fame — to illustrate how he refuses to let life get the better of him. Very few people, not just rappers, could pull this off without sounding like they're overcompensating. But something in Nipsey's flow, how it occasionally seems to lag just a step behind the beat before accelerating into a barking delivery, makes it easy to believe him.
