Humble Beginnings

Lyricist: Bazzi    Composer: Bazzi

Count up the bands, count up the digits
All of us died‚ now all of us livin' (All of us livin'‚ yeah)
I pimped out my ride‚ call me Xzibit (Yeah, yeah, yeah)
I am a man from humble beginnings
Outside Detroit‚ where it's cold and rigid (Brr)
You won't be caught if they catch you slippin' (No, no, no)
Family back home‚ my family I'm missin' (Family I'm missin', yeah)
They livin' good like they gettin' commission
They gettin' commission, oh, yeah
Yeah, I'm feelin' good, I'm feelin' right
Stopped smokin' weed but I'm takin' a drag
Think of my pops and where we was at
Whippin' the Grand and it's all that we had
Place-to-pace, facin' eviction
I was like Raven, man, I had the vision
Picture me here, I picture me winnin'
Now I'm in the top floor, I'm smilin', I'm grinnin'

Can't believe that we made it
Can't believe that we made it
We was broke, we was breakin'
Now I'm here and I'm stayin'
Can't believe that we made it
Can't believe that we made it
We was broke, we was breakin'
Now I'm here and I'm

Countin' the bands, countin' the digits
Wasn't born rich, wasn't born privileged
Lebanese blood, I was born ambitious (I was born ambitious)
My pops told me, "If you want it, go get it"
You gotta go get it, yeah, yeah
Yeah, I been goin' hard, stayin' hot like the summer
You know I take my chance, I might never get another
Blinded to the hate, like my name is Stevie Wonder
Do it for the fam and the fans and my brothers
'Member Cherry Hill camp, sent there on the bus
Center kept me goin' like a voice from above
Knew that I was destined, man, I knew that I was touched
In my head was conversations that I knew should be discussed
Jumped like seven years, now I've turned into a star
Livin' in my dream, oh, man, I bought my dream car
Realizin', man nothin' doesn't make you who you are
'Cause money buys designer shit to wear over you scars
Damn, money buys designer shit to wear over you scars
Grateful for it all, but my wealth is in my heart
When they tell me that I made it, thought I made it from the start

Can't believe that we made it (I can't believe, can't believe)
Can't believe that we made it (I can't believe)
We was broke, we was breakin' (Breakin', breakin')
Now I'm here and I'm stayin'
Can't believe that we made it (Yeah, yeah)
Can't believe that we made it (I can't believe, I can't believe)
We was broke, we was breakin' (I can't believe)
Now I'm here and I'm
