About Against All Odds

"Against All Odds" is a collaborative single, recorded by British musicians and production team Chase & Status featuring vocals from British rapper Kano. The single was released on 23 February 2009 as the second single from Chase & Status' debut studio album, More Than Alot. "Against All Odds" contains samples from the 1967 song "Dead End Street" by Lou Rawls and a drum sample from "Apache" by Incredible Bongo Band. The music video for the track features Kano and Chase & Status in an underground nightclub in London. "Against All Odds" was released as a double A-side single with the instrumental track "Saxon", which later went on to appear in the deluxe edition of More Than Alot. "Saxon" is a reggae-inspired dubstep song, as well as one of the few dubstep songs in the drum and bass album. Ironically, the instrumental contains heavy elements of the Metallica song "Wherever I May Roam", giving it its dark sound. The song also takes various vocal samples from the 1984 live project Coughing Up Fire!!!. The track's title refers to Saxon Studio International, the reggae sound system (group of MCs) being sampled from the project. "Saxon" is also the instrumental used in the Rihanna song "Red Lipstick" from the deluxe edition of her 2011 album Talk That Talk.

I was raised in a city with no heart,
Where there's no car,
Steppin' when it comes to be gettin' that dough fast,
I'm a hustler, I'm a, I'm a hustler
Raised on the battle field,
Born as a sufferer,
Before i had a deal i was still stackin' deals,
Get punked sell food to the costomers,
Now i get love crews in the back o' the S Class,
Dem cant move like dat Y'na,
(I was raised in)

I come from where man were done for hardly nothin'
You can see it in the blues that I'm hardly frontin'
Got kids with guns in the heart of London,
Bullet proof vests ?

There's no acters and actress' barley around here,
This matches them straps of Manchesters,
Soon as you exit Stanstead you might see
