put your foot in my nikes.

A tune as catchy and captivating as it is inspirational, Maino's "All the Above" tells his motivating story. This Brooklyn-born rapper emerged from prison in 2003 and founded Hustle Hard Entertainment. He decided to pursue music and found breakout success in first single "Hi Hater" (2008). "All the Above" speaks about how Maino overcame his struggles and hardships by always hustlin' and keeping his head in the game. He never gave up. The narrative is accented by a fantastic T-Pain hook and Just Blaze's done-up production. This song has been stuck in my head for a good while and will probably remain there.
