Together we made it, we made it
Even though we had our backs up against the wall

See a nigga survived the worst
But my life is glorious
But I know that I leaped every hurdle
And I'm so victorious

Take a look I'm a symbol of greatness
Now call a nigga Morpheus
As force securin' the win
But they believe I'm so notorious

You know that I've been 'bout my bread
Even though we rapping now
(Yes)
We used to live on the strip
Even though a nigga higher level trapping now

I superseded every one of my little struggles and
So your head never ever been an option
A nigga paper long like rush hour traffic
And I'm about to take the hood shoppin', get it

Together we made it
(You see we did it niggas)
We made it
Even though we had our backs up against the wall
(C'mon)

Forever we waited
(Ha ha)
And they told us we were never going to get it
But we took it on the road
(To the riches)
On the road
(To the ghetto)

On the road
(In the projects to this banging instrumental)
On the road
(Ride with me)
On the road
(You come and get it)
On the road
(Yeah, yeah, yeah, yo)

When it all got started
We was steadily just getting rejected
And it seemed like nothing we could do
Would ever get us respected

At best we was stressed
And the worst they probably said was we were pathetic
Had all the pieces to that puzzle
Just a way to connect it

And I was fighting through every rhyme
Tightening up every line
Never resting the question
If I was out of my mind

And it finally came time to do it and let it die
So put the chips on the table
And told them to let it ride
Sing it, ya

Together we made it
(You see we did it niggas)
We made it
Even though we had our backs up against the wall
(C'mon)

Forever we waited
(Ha ha)
And they told us we were never going to get it
But we took it on the road
(To the riches)
On the road
(To the ghetto)

On the road
(In the projects to this banging instrumental)
On the road
(Ride with me)
On the road
(You come and get it)
On the road
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)

Look in case you misunderstand
Exactly what I'm building
The shit that I could leave for my children's
(Children's)
Children's
(Children)

Now on the wake up
I smile to see how far I've come
Fighting for sales on a strip to get hustle from
From nights in jail on a bench using my muscles son

To count money like Dre and Jimmy and Russell was
(Ya nigga)
But now I live when I dream you see me finally getting it
(Oh)
Let's make a toast to the hustle
Regardless how you get it sing it

Together we made it
(You see we did it niggas)
We made it
Even though we had our backs up against the wall
(C'mon)

Forever we waited
(Ha ha)
And they told us we were never going to get it
But we took it on the road
(To the riches)
On the road
(To the ghetto)

On the road
(In the projects to this banging instrumental)
On the road
(Ride with me)
On the road
(You come and get it)
On the road
(Yeah, yeah, yeah)
