    how did this song not get any mainstream love? I mean Akon on the hook is a pretty good shot at mainstream success if the rest of the track is good ..and the lyrics on this are sick. I thought this track would get him radio play, but I guess it didn't make noise at all.
    "I had a dream that I would rise to the top, you haters like it not, who number 1? I got my eyes on your spot"

    " Late nights on the corner crooked had em a dream, to drive a maroon 5 call it adam levine"
    "even paralyzed people gotta stand for somethin"

    cuz no matter how good u are the radio is all politics. u have to meet certain criteria for some programmers. sometimes u have to pay and competing with big time labels isnt feasable. sometimes u jus gotta dick ride the djs who are runnin shit but aint no real nigga gonna do that. there's way too much bullshit involved in gettin on the radio so i completely understand y a song hot as this didnt see massive radio spins

    simple...it wasn't a radio single. Very very very very rarely are lyrical songs radio friendly.
