Also it says, “The phrase 'Mama said,' connect[s] his hope to the advice of a mentor figure. She sees him as prophesied to be (successful) in amazing ways, so she encourages him.”

According to Youtube.com, someone commented on the music video saying, “No matter how hard your dreams seem, keep going. You might even have to climb up the side of a building in downtown LA, but it'll all be worth it at the top.”
