When the streets meets the suites: “Venture Capitalist (Like Ben Horowitz)” (Produced by multi-platinum producer Fantom Of The Beat, most notable for producing 50 Cent & Lil’ Kim’s “Magic Stick”) is a very straight forward, no nonsense, matter-of-factly, no-holds-barred, witty and ingenius mix of first person (Ben’s) Hip-Hop lyrical narrative and second person (Divine’s) experience. Divine combines and raps from both mindset and perspective of Ben and himself, utilizing some of the greatest entrepreneurial metaphors Ben holds dear and utilizes Hip-Hop rap lyrics to teach others about business, to his own life experiences of striving to rise from former drug dealer and ex-convict, to prominent rapper and eventually company CEO; all of which entails a winning against all odds mentality and attitude, determination and courage. Divine shows that not much is different from being an independent Hip-Hop artist, the streets and a tech venture capitalist and CEO in Silicon Valley. Each must have the intelligence, determination, ambition, drive and courage to succeed and overcome obstacles; and overall failure. Divine paints a vivid picture that The Hard Thing About Hard Things is; nothing’s easy. But he’s on his Ben Horowitz “$h!t”, Rap Genius translation: Divine’s about his business like Ben Horowitz, to courageously succeed against all odds.
