"All the Above" is the second single from Brooklyn rapper Maino's debut album If Tomorrow Comes.... It features R&B singer T-Pain, who sings the bridge, chorus and last verse. "All The Above" was produced by Just Blaze (and co-produced by Nard & B), the producer of T.I.'s song "Live Your Life". Both songs have similar elements including the lead synthesizers, drum pattern, and violins but in a different key and different chords.
The music video, which was directed by Erik White, was shot in Miami and features Maino drinking "Purple Stuff", a relaxation drink from Funktional Beverages, during an interview sequence. The music video premiered on MTV Jams March 23, 2009.
It ranked at #61 on BET's Notarized: Top 100 Videos of 2009 countdown.
In popular culture
Aspiring rappers ZipShady and Sticky Stick remixed the song to be about the TI N-Spire calculator. The video can be found on YouTube.
During the 2009–10 NCAA baseball season, very many ACC teams, most prominently the Florida State Seminoles, the Miami Hurricanes, the Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets, the Virginia Cavaliers, and the Virginia Tech Hokies, used the chorus and T-Pain's line, (from the extended version), as a walk-up song. It was also used prevalently at that year's ACC Baseball Tournament, in Greensboro, North Carolina.
Ryan Hanigan of the Cincinnati Reds, Dan Uggla of the Atlanta Braves and Robert Andino of the Baltimore Orioles use it as their walk-up song.
The Charlotte Bobcats use it as their pre-tip-off song.
The West Virginia Mountaineers men's basketball team used the song in their pre-game entrance video for the 2009–2010 season.
Another remix dubbed "The StreetMix" has been on some street mixtapes featuring Chamillionaire and an underground artist called Shadow. Chamillionaire is on the first verse, Maino on the second, T-Pain on the hook, and Shadow on the bridge. Shadow's parts are in Tagalog while the rest of the song is in English.
