A diamond in the rough
Meanings of "A diamond in the rough"
A person who is usually, notably of good character but lacks manners (etiquette), education, fashion style, sophistication. The person does not have to have all of the attributes to qualify. It can be any, or all of them.
The expression suggests an uncut diamond, which is
unattractive to the eye but which has the potential of
becoming a beautiful stone when properly cut and polished. While it's usually used to describe an unpolished or unsophisticated person that has potential, it can be used to describe other things.

I gotta holler just to be heard.
With every word, I drop knowledge!
I’m a diamond in the rough, a shiny piece of coal
tryin’ to reach my goal. My power of speech: unimpeachable.
I rap too much, rep too hard, confuse plenty
How the fuck a bitch this pretty rap that fire
I'm a diamond in the rough and bitches can't top fire
I've been all that, thinking I'm a have to quit playing
and you don't even care
that everything is upside down.
What looks like a diamond in the rough in the middle of the night
turns out to be nothing more than a waitress awaiting.
Because everything was good, but then it went bad
I tried to treat you like I should, gave you everything I had, but
It wasn't enough, a diamond in the rough
Wish that I could walk away, cuz this loving is tough, but
My lips are drying up, my insides are freezing up
I can’t look at you, you’re dazzling boy I’m so blind
I’m a diamond in the rough, I’m your bride
I’m going to make you mine, that’s what a queen do
'Cause I'm tryna stunt on Mr. Flintstone, one look and your bitch gone
Turn a T-Rex tooth to a chain, shit cost more than your Range
I'm a diamond in the rough, fancy diamonds by the way
I been making moves, been writing rhymes, been stacking commas
mais littéralement ça veut dire "attrape l'hameçon", ce que Maui essaye de faire.)
(*2 J'ai eu du mal à traduire cette phrase car "Watch me dazzle like a diamond in the rough" est un jeu de mot avec l'expréssion "diamond in the rough" qu'on pourrait dire à quelqu'un qui a un coeur d'or.)
Baby how can I compare you to a queen or a diamond in the rough? I'm scared too
Can't even recognise you, don't wanna look at your face, you make me sick, I'mma throw up
But money don't mean nothing if equal pay ain't the standard.
Trying to tweet these changes but one-forty letters can't change strangers.
It's not enough to be a diamond in the rough cause if you sit to pee,
you at the bottom of the ladder.
