  • Is you ready or not?
    I've been waitin' the whole damn night
    Gimme all that you got
    I've got money ringin' my line
    You know I'd never stop
    Ooh, you better show me something
    Tell me one more time, is you ready or not?
    If you ready or not
    Re-ready or, ready or, ready or not

    You could run with me or run from me
    Yo, I run it up when they run the beat
    I remember havin' dreams of a hundred G's (a hunna)
    Now that's the kinda P's I'm pullin' up my sleeves
    Yo, my baby mom's mad that I been hardly 'round
    So I bought a couple handbags just to calm her down
    We got straps in them flats that hold army rounds
    My niggas movin' like them vets, we put your dargies down (down)
    Billy died but I've been sleepin' better
    And that's ever since a opp went to sleep forever (forever)
    Been around the world, I never thought I'd see it ever
    Where I'm from, these niggas only smokin' weed for pleasure
    Oh, Lord, I don't wanna sell crack no more (no more)
    I don't wanna be in jail cells so bored (so bored)
    I don't wanna be on bail, I'd rather go tour
    All my niggas wanna roll, and they're so sure

    Is you ready or not?
    I've been waitin' the whole damn night
    Gimme all that you got
    I've got money ringin' my line
    You know I'd never stop
    Ooh, you better show me something
    Tell me one more time, is you ready or not?
    If you ready or not
    Re-ready or, ready or, ready or not

    Court buses with them chains on me
    To tour buses with them chains on me
    The way I was isn't the way to be
    They won't listen, gotta make 'em see (see)
    Now my flows hit harder, call them waves at sea
    Everyone tryna cool now, they need favors done
    But where was they when I was choppin' through the razors, blunt?
    Before Billy died, he rinsed my favorite gun (R.I.P.)
    I'll never sell it, bro, I feel to go and frame it up
    I get mad love from strangers and less on the block
    Save half, spend the rest on a watch
    It's funny, where I'm from, guns are pressin' a lot
    But if you're from here, in life you have less of a shot
    Little Nathan got life, we couldn't tell him to stop
    Now he's doin' twenty-eight years whether ready or not
    God, I wonder, will you let me into heaven or what?
    I been ridin', I been stealin', I been sellin' a lot

    Is you ready or not?
    I've been waitin' the whole damn night
    Gimme all that you got (oh)
    I've got money ringin' my line (oh)
    You know I'd never stop
    Ooh, you better show me something
    Tell me one more time, is you ready or not?
    If you ready or not
    Re-ready or, ready or, ready or not

    You can't run from the fire, that's nothin' but facts (facts)
    Try to run from the fire, get touched in your back (back)
    My uncle messed up, he started fuckin' with crack
    But I didn't care, I was still in the trap fuckin' with that
    Yeah, them hoes changed quick, so I ain't fuckin' with that
    But my gun never switch, so I put trust into that
    Hella nights that I spent out on the one-way (the one-way)
    Knowin' that I'll make it out of there just one day (one day)
    You can't start life, pause life, or play rewind
    So when it comes to my time, don't play with mine
    Oh, you left your knife at home, but I stay with mine
    I know a nigga who made that same mistake and died
    Five watches and none of them say the time (none of them)
    Well, they do, but none of them say it right (none of them say it)
    Hella hoes but none of them stay the night (none of them stay the night)
    So I'm lonely, but that's just a player's life

    Is you ready or not?
    I've been waitin' the whole damn night
    Gimme all that you got
    I've got money ringin' my line
    You know I'd never stop
    Ooh, you better show me something
    Tell me one more time, is you ready or not?
    If you ready or not
    Re-ready or, ready or, ready or not

    You can't run away
    From these vibes we got
    Oh, baby, ayy, baby
    Yeah, 'cause you got a lot
    And anywhere you go
    Only you got to know
    Oh, baby, ayy, baby
    You can't hide from this life, oh no
