Twenty years ago, Jay Z released the classic song "Can't Knock the Hustle." Now, Texas rapper Essay Potna releases its spiritual counterpart, "Don't Knock the Hustle" featuring Kevin Gates & Kirko Bangz.
On a surface level, "Don't Knock the Hustle" doesn't actually resemble "Can't Know the Hustle" at all. But the two songs both espouse the core belief that the hustle is sacred and unimpeachable.
"Don't Knock the Hustle" is a single from Essay Potna's new album Emotional RollerCoaster X30, which is now available on all streaming platforms. Stream it on Spotify.
