"Born-N-Raised" is the third single from DJ Khaled's debut album, Listennn... the Album, produced by The Runners. The single features Pitbull, Trick Daddy and Rick Ross. It was released on June 6, 2006.[1] The song is also included on Pitbull's second studio album El Mariel.


HipHopDX said, when reviewing for Listennn...the Album: "Musically, Khaled and the crew keep it dirty with "Born-N-Raised," which is an infectious anthem.".[2] According to PopMatters: Listennn "opens with the song, in which the local heavyweights Trick Daddy, Pitbull and Rick Ross reestablish their status as the leaders of the pack. The beat barely contains Trick’s greasy flow as he proclaims once again, against his own wailing overdubs, that he is a thug. Pitbull bilingually shouts out Trick and Luke (of 2 Live Crew). Rick Ross shines the most, closing the track with carefully enunciated statements proclaiming his greatness and name-checking neighborhoods."[3] RapReviews commented on the song: "The Runners' opening organs and funk of "Born-N-Raised" are laced up."[4] XXL said about "Born-N-Raised": "Inspired collaborations like the Miami anthem featuring Trick Daddy, Rick Ross and Pitbull save it's album from further mediocrity."[5] Stylus Magazine: "Khaled constantly represents Miami and Dade County throughout Listennn, not the least on the all-star anthem "Born N Raised" featuring Trick Daddy, Pitbull, and Rick Ross."[6]
