We Made It
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 (Huh!)
But I know that I leaped every hurdle
And I'm so victorious (Huh!)
Take a look, I'm a symbol of greatness
Now call a nigga Morpheus (Yeah!)
As a force securin' the win
But they believe I'm so notorious (Yeah!)
You know that I've been by my bread
Even though we rappin' now (Yes!)
And we used to live on the strip
Even though a nigga higher level trappin' now (Huh!)
Superseded every one of my little struggles and
Failure has never been an option (Trust!)
A nigga paper long like rush hour traffic
And I'm about to take the hood shoppin'
Get it!

Together we made it (Busta: You see we did it niggas!)
We made it even though
We had our backs up against the wall (Come on!)
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 bangin' instrumental)
On the road (Ride with me here, yeah)
On the road (You come and get it, yeah, yeah)
On the road (Yeah, yeah, yeah, yo!)

Yo, when it all got started
We was steadily just gettin' rejected
And it seemed like nothin' we could do
Would ever get us respected
At best, we were stressed
At the worst they probably said we're pathetic
Had all the pieces to that puzzle
Just no way to connect it
I was fightin' through every rhyme
Tightenin' up every line
Never restin' the question
If I was out of my mind
It finally came time
To do it or let it die
So we put the chips on the table
And told 'em to let it ride, singin', yeah

Together we made it (You see we did it niggas!)
We made it even though
We had our backs up against the wall (Come on!)
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 bangin' instrumental)
On the road (Ride with me here, yeah)
On the road (You come and get it, yeah, yeah)
On the road (Yeah, yeah, yeah)

Look, in case you misunderstand
Exactly what I'm buildin'
The shit that I can leave
For my children (children), children (children)
Now at home I wake up, I smile
To see how far I've come (Yeah!)
Fightin' for sales on a strip
To negate the hustle from (Yeah!)
From nights in jail on a bench
Usin' my muscles, son (Yeah!)
To countin' money like
Dre and Jimmy and Russell once (Yeah nigga!)
But now I live when I dream
You see we finally did it (Oh!)
Let's make a toast to the hustle
Regardless how you did 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 (Come on!)
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 bangin' instrumental)
On the road (Ride with me here, yeah)
On the road (You come and get it, yeah, yeah)
On the road (Yeah, yeah, yeah, yo!)
