I Sy's Daily Game. It's a production of iHeartRadio. What's Up,
Sized Team, You're listening to The Daily Game the compilation
of motivational quotes I've collected over the years that I
found inspiring and helped me through the game of life.
Today's quote comes from legendary music producer Rick Rubin. Rick

Rubin is something else as far as a producer. He's
the pinnacle of being a producer. He's produced everybody from
early hip hop L COOLJ, Beastie Boys to speed metal
Slayer to Red Hot Chili Peppers. I was honored to
work with Rick Rubin. I did a duet with Slayer

and we did some punk rock exploited covers on the
Judgment Nights soundtrack. So Rick, pretty much what he says
is law, and he's always been in music, never anything else,
and just that producer that is going to get the
best out of you. And I love a lot of
Rick's quotes, but this is a great one. Demonstrate it,

don't explain it. This can go for everything, This can
go for everything, this can go for love in the streets.
We say, show and prove, That's what we say, Show
and prove. Don't tell me you my man, show me
you my boy, and prove it. Don't tell me you
love me, Show it and prove it. Rick just says

it a different way. Demonstrate it, don't explain it. You know,
it's so easy to tell somebody, Oh, I got your back,
I'm with you, I'm there forever that. Yeah, well demonstrate that.
Talk is cheap. And if you're a musician, don't tell
me how you're going to do the track. Don't don't
talk about it, don't explain do it. Go to the

studio do it. I'll understand the demonstration. You know. If
I'm an actor, I can tell you all about acting
theory and this is how it should be. Why don't
you just go up and get in front of cameraon
do it. Stop explaining things to people. Do it. There's
so many people out here in life that can explain
you how they're going to make a million dollars. Oh,

we're going to do this, we're gonna do that, We're
gonna do this, we're gonna do that. I would much
rather see the bank recy I would much rather show you.
Show me the bank receipt that you got ten twenty
million dollars in the bank. Now you got my attention
versus your theory on how it's gonna get done. Like
I always tell people, you know the difference between potential

and actual. An actual person can do it, demonstrate it.
A potential person loves to explain things, and this is
my theory and this is how it's gonna go now. Man,
Rick said it right, Man, Stop talking so fucking much.
Demonstrate it, don't explain it, just do it, and then

people will understand that you know what the fuck you're
talking about. This has been another Ice Cold fact from me.
Iced team. Listening again tomorrow when I drop some wisdom
on your ass till then, stay safe, stay smart, and
stay knowing. The best way to prove something is to

show them. Show improve ICE's Daily Game. It is a
