  • Lyrics
  • This piano-heavy motivational anthem reads like a series of affirmations as Wiz Khalifa raps about on grinding hard and never giving up on a dream. He also speals of authenticity, making money and being your own boss.
  • The video shows Khalifa in his natural environment relaxing with a lingerie-clad girl in his hotel room and eating out with his boys. "It was about showing a little bit of my skills, that I'm in a class by myself," he explained to Vogue. "It was my look times whatever situation we were in. So you have me going to dinner; you have me in my car; you have me chilling. We just wanted to bring that out but still look comfortable, so it doesn't look like I'm doing too much."
