"All the Above" is a song by American rapper Maino, released on February 17, 2009, as the second single from his debut album If Tomorrow Comes... (2009). The song, which features vocals from American R&B singer T-Pain, was produced by Just Blaze and co-produced by Nard & B. The song is noted to have similar elements, such as the lead synthesizers, drum pattern, and violins but in a different key and different chords, as T.I.'s hit single "Live Your Life", also produced by Just Blaze.
"All the Above" peaked at number 39 on the Billboard Hot 100, making this his only Top 40 hit on that chart to date. It also peaked at numbers 10, 24 and 59, on the Hot Rap Songs, Digital Songs and Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs charts, respectively. A music video directed by Erik White was made to promote the single.
"All the Above" is Maino's first single to chart on the Billboard Hot 100. It debuted at number 54 and then rose to number 39 the next week, before falling out of the top fifty a couple weeks later, and then climbed back into the top fifty for another five weeks without surpassing the original peak position. It also peaked at number 10 on the Hot Rap Songs chart, number 24 on the Digital Songs chart and number 59 on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart. The single was certified platinum and is Maino's only Top 40 hit to date.
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 on March 23, 2009.
