We were born to be kings, only major league teams

from Pusha T (Ft. Rick Ross) – Hold On Lyrics on Rap Genius


A somewhat common motif in rap that has been hashed on is that Africans were born to be kings: Pusha shared the same sentiment earlier on this song and Pimp C’s sampled intro on “FuckWithMeYouKnowIGotIt” (which features Ross) goes in detail on how blacks were born to succeed.

Ross and his crew are no different — they were destined for greatness. Ross compares MMG’s success in the rap game to the baseball hierarchy: in American professional baseball, there are minor baseball leagues to help players prepare for the pros. However, Ross and his crew are highly successful, so they only play in the major league (of the rap game).
