  • Yo Pain you ready? (Yay)
    Mane lets lock and load (yeah)
    Just Blaze, (yeah) Nard turn me up
    (Hey) B, I think we got one, (yeah) here we go

    Tell me what do you see (see)
    When you looking at me (whoa, whoa, whoa)
    On a mission to be (be)
    What I'm destined to be (whoa, whoa, whoa)
    I've done been through the pain and the sorrow
    The struggle is nothing but love (nothing but love)
    I'm a soldier, a rider, a ghetto survivor and all the above (hey)
    All the above, all the above, all the above
    All the above, all the above, all the above, all the above (unstoppable Maino)

    Listen, really what do you see (see)
    When you looking at me (me)
    See me come up from nothin'
    To me living my dreams
    I done been to the bottom
    I done suffered a lot
    I deserve to be rich
    Headed straight to the top
    Look how I ride for the block
    Look how I rep for the hood
    I get nothing but love now when I come through the hood
    Getting this fortune and fame
    Money make all of us change
    The new Benz is all white, call it John McCain
    How the hell could you stop me?
    Why in the world would you try?
    I go hard forever,
    That's just how I'm designed
    That's just how I was built
    See the look in my eyes
    You take all of this from me
    And I'm still gon' survive
    You get truth from me
    But these rappers gon' lie
    I'm a part of these streets
    Till the day that I die
    I wave hi to the haters, mad that I finally done made it
    Take a look and you can tell that I am destined for greatness

    Tell me what do you see (see)
    When you looking at me (whoa, whoa, whoa)
    On a mission to be (be)
    What I'm destined to be (whoa, whoa, whoa)
    I've done been through the pain and the sorrow
    The struggle is nothing but love (nothing but love)
    I'm a soldier, a rider, a ghetto survivor and all the above (hey)
    All the above, all the above, all the above
    All the above, all the above, all the above, all the above

    It's easy to hate
    It's harder to love me
    Y'all don't understand
    Y'all quickly to judge me
    Put your foot in my Nikes
    Picture you livin' in my life
    Picture you stuck in a cell
    Picture you wasting your life
    Picture you facing a charge
    Picture you beating the odds
    Picture you willing to bleed
    Picture you wearing the scars
    Thank you for making me struggle
    Thank you for making me grind
    I perfected my hustle
    Tell me the world ain't mine
    You been seein' me lately
    I'm a miracle, baby
    I refuse to lose
    This is what the ghetto done made me
    I put that on my father
    Tryna hope for tomorrow
    When I think that I can't
    I envision Obama
    I envision them diamonds
    I envision Ferrari's
    If the world was perfect
    All my niggas behind me
    Ain't you happy I made it
    That I'm making this statement
    Take a look and you can tell that I'm destined for greatness

    Tell me what do you see (see)
    When you looking at me (whoa, whoa, whoa)
    On a mission to be (be)
    What I'm destined to be (whoa, whoa, whoa)
    I've done been through the pain and the sorrow
    The struggle is nothing but love (nothing but love)
    I'm a soldier, a rider, a ghetto survivor and all the above (hey)
    All the above, all the above, all the above
    All the above, all the above, all the above, all the above

    Now we can go to the spot (spot) or if I'm out on the block (block)
    I hustle hard cause its all the same (they know, they know)
    And you know that grind don't stop (stop)
    Just 'cause I rose to the top (top)
    And everybody knows my name (they know, they know)
