Maino ft. T-Pain - All The Above

If Tomorrow Comes...

Time for another pop quiz – is Maino (a.) a soldier, (b.) a rider, or (c.) a ghetto survivor?  As Shock G would say, “The answer is ‘d:’ All [of] The Above.”  Though the Brooklyn emcee came off as a straight-up cynic on his last Booth feature, this new single sees Maino donning his rose-colored glasses to forecast a brighter tomorrow over an expansive beat by Just Blaze and Nard & B.  The optimistic subject matter coupled with T-Pain‘s anthemic chorus make it seem as though the rapper’s angling for an uplifting crossover hit in the vein of T.I.‘s Best of the Booth award-winning Live Your Life, but will Maino’s motivational rhymes prove as crowd-pleasing as Tip’s?  It’s too early to tell, but All The Above is definitely a catchy second single from the up-and-coming emcee, whose debut studio album, If Tomorrow Comes…, is set to hit stores and online retailers May 19th.
