  • Started from the bottom now we're here
    Started from the bottom now my whole team fucking here
    Started from the bottom now we're here
    Started from the bottom now the whole team here, nigga
    Started from the bottom now we're here
    Started from the bottom now my whole team here, nigga
    Started from the bottom now we're here
    Started from the bottom now the whole team fucking here

    I done kept it real from the jump
    Living at my mama's house we'd argue every month
    Nigga, I was trying to get it on my own
    Working all night, traffic on the way home
    And my uncle calling me like "Where ya at?
    I gave you the keys told ya bring it right back"
    Nigga, I just think its funny how it goes
    Now I'm on the road, half a million for a show

    And we started from the bottom now we're here
    Started from the bottom now my whole team fucking here
    Started from the bottom now we're here
    Started from the bottom now the whole team here, nigga
    Started from the bottom now we're here
    Started from the bottom now my whole team fucking here
    Started from the bottom now we're here
    Started from the bottom now my whole team here, nigga

    Boys tell stories about the man
    Say I never struggled, wasn't hungry, yeah, I doubt it, nigga
    I could turn your boy into the man
    There ain't really much I hear that's poppin' off without us, nigga
    We just want the credit where it's due
    I'ma worry about me, give a fuck about you
    Nigga, just as a reminder to myself
    I wear every single chain, even when I'm in the house

    'Cause we started from the bottom now we're here
    Started from the bottom now my whole team fucking here
    Started from the bottom now we're here
    Started from the bottom now the whole team here, nigga

    No new niggas, nigga we don't feel that
    Fuck a fake friend, where your real friends at?
    We don't like to do too much explainin'
    Story stay the same I never changed it
    No new niggas, nigga we don't feel that
    Fuck a fake friend, where your real friends at?
    We don't like to do too much explainin'
    Story stay the same through the money and the fame

    'Cause we started from the bottom now we're here
    Started from the bottom now my whole team fucking here
    Started from the bottom now we're here
    Started from the bottom now the whole team here, nigga
    Started from the bottom now we're here
    Started from the bottom now my whole team here, nigga
    Started from the bottom now we're here
    Started from the bottom now my whole team here, nigga
