  • Lyrics
  • A duet with 50 Cent, this song talks about what they had to overcome to achieve their success. This is evidenced in the video, which shows the rappers as kids growing up in tough neighborhoods.
  • This uses a sample from "Rubber Band" by the disco group The Trammps.
  • The line, "Pac is gone, and Brenda still throwing babies in the garbage" is a reference to the Tupac song "Brenda's Got A Baby."
  • This was reworked as a duet with Mary J. Blige as "MVP" for her album The Breakthrough. >>
