[Feat. T-Pain]

Tell me what do you see
When you looking at me
(Whoa-Woah)
On a mission to be
What I'm destined to be
(Whoa-Woah)
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

All the above (repeat)

Maino
Really what do you see
When you looking at me
See me coming from nothing
To me living my dreams
I had been to the bottom
I had suffered a lot
I deserve to be rich
Heading straight to the top
Look how I rep for the block
Look how I rep for the hood
I get nothing but love now
That I come through the hood
Getting this fortunate fate
Why leave that gold on this chain
The new bases are white call them John Mcain
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 that look I'm 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 way hotter than hatters glad that I finally done made it
Take a look and you can tell that I am destined for greatness.

T-Pain
Tell me what do you see
When you looking at me
(Whoa-Woah)
On a mission to be
What I'm destined to be
(Whoa-Woah)
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

All the above (repeat)

Maino
It's easy to hate it's harder to love me
Yall don't understand yall quickly to judge me
Put ur foot in my nikes picture u livin in my life
Picture u 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 these scars
Thank you for making me struggle
Thank you for making me grind
I perfected my hustle tell me the world aint mine
You aint seein me lately
I'm a miracle baby
I refuse to lose this is the ghetto then maybe
I put that on my father
Tryna hope for tomorrow
When I think that I can't
I envision obama
I envision o donnis
I envision ferarris
If the world was perfect
All my niggas behind me
Aint u happy I made it that I'm making this statement
Take a look and u can tell I'm destined for greatness

T-Pain
Now we gon talk on this spot (Spot)
Or if I'm out on the block (block)
I hustle hard cos it's all the same (they know, they know)
And you know that grind don't stop
Just cos I rose to the top (top)
And everybody knows my name (they know, they know)
Ayyy still grinding (still grinding)
Still hustling (still hustleing)
No more pain (no more pain)
No more sufferering (no more sufferering)
My ladys and my shorties and my thugs
Keep that task and that shine and the love

All the above (repeat)

    No mater what happens keep trying, there's no telling what god has for you in store, because success in soon to be the only option for you to receive as long as you keep fith and beleive that there is no limit to the abillity for one person to become better, and me being here just now realize how life works. Im a 14 year old boy that is so talented and gift that understands that there is never a limit... :d emmanuel archie age 14 ( twandrews high point north carolina)

    I adore this song, especially the part that T-Pain sings... It's talking about how even though people come from the streets, they can get far. And it can speak about anyone who has a bad background, or had a difficult life, but they survived and they became who they were meant to be.

    i think there trying to say people dont really give u chances when you've been through alot cause they try to judge u from your past not your future and they to it let it go and put it behind them and look ahead of things and make a bright side of it.
