Can't Hold Us Lyrics

[Intro:]
Ay, ay, ay
Good to see you, come on in, let's go
Yeah, let's go
Alright, alright
OK, uh, alright, OK
Alright, OK

Return of the Mack, get up!
What it is, what it does, what it is, what it isn’t.
Looking for a better way to get...

    "On my I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T shit hustlin,
    Chasing dreams since I was fourteen with the four track bussing
    Halfway cross that city with the backpack fatcat crushin"

    Pretty sure that means he was 14 with a backpack with a speaker inside playing a beat that was a "four on the floor" tempo/style and he was rapping to it walking so far he made it halfway accross the city - he was rapping about politicians crushing them

    "Now I never ever did it for a throne.
    That validation comes from giving it back to the people."

    didnt do it for fame or money he did it because he wanfed to help take the power away from big corporations and politicians

    "On my I-N-D-E-P-E-N-D-E-N-T shit hustler,
    Chasing dreams since I was fourteen with the four track bussing
    Halfway cross that city with the backpack,"

    I think it's about how he's been working towards his dream since he was young, and now that he has made it to the point he has been working towards, he is celebrating.

    "Now I never ever did it for a throne.
    That validation comes from giving it back to the people."

    I think it is also about being grateful towards those who have helped him get to where he is in his life and career, as well as giving back to them.

    It doesnt really have a meaning its just that they are keeping their hands up at a party.
