  • The time is now on everything
    Took my heart away from money, I ain't interested in fame
    And I pray that never change
    Ambition is priceless, it's something that's in your veins
    And I put that on my name

    Uh, the only hope I had was selling dope
    Was on my grind cause times were harder than the cellar floor
    My momma taught me never steal and never tell on folks
    I grew up looking at the niggas that was selling coke
    Oh, I was raised by the stop sign
    No religion I was getting saved by the glock nine
    By the minute I was getting paid like a hot line
    Servin' rollin' fiends was calling, we was dot com
    Well connected, well respected and well protected
    Aint get accepted, well rejected and now they regret it
    Aint get my message, was a signal when I was texting
    The niggas I was calling was fraud and I learned my lesson
    Now I move with aggression, use my mind as a weapon
    Cause chances are never given they tooken like interceptions
    So throw that pass, I'll be the corner back
    Me and Folarin MMG gon bring that Warner back

    For my ambition
    Easy to dream a dream, though it's harder to live it
    They gon love me for my Ambition
    Easy to dream a dream, though it's harder to live it
    They gon love me for my Ambition
    Easy to dream a dream, though it's harder to live it
    Look, they gon love me for my ambition
    Beautiful music, painting pictures that be my vision

    (It speaks for itself. Define Ambition for me?)

    My ambition to win, just to get me some ends
    Help me pay my little rent, maybe sit in a Benz
    I saw momma praying as she wait on results
    It was hot in the kitchen can I wait on the porch
    My father was missing, War Lord Oliver North
    Life was diggin' me deeper, I kept on coming up short
    Breaking so many laws, waking up in the dark
    Who cut my power off? It's time to move that powder soft
    Not too many options when you coming from the projects
    Sittin' in the trap now you moving Cyndi Lauper
    Girls wanna have fun, and a nigga with some change
    And I doubt that ever change
    Ambition is priceless that's something thats in your veins
    And I doubt that ever change
    Ambition is my shit and I put that on my name
    And I doubt that ever change

    For my ambition
    Easy to dream a dream, though it's harder to live it
    They gon love me for my Ambition
    Easy to dream a dream, though it's harder to live it
    They gon love me for my Ambition
    Easy to dream a dream, though it's harder to live it
    Look, they gon love me for my ambition
    Beautiful music, painting pictures that be my vision

    Well wishes to my opposition
    You niggas probably cop a plea before you cop a pistol
    I got nothing against them, they got fucking potential
    But every nigga who can read gotta get his issue
    Subscribe niggas reside where all the lions and killers be
    And I aint spend a minute up in the streets
    But I'm limitless mentally, I'm lyrically the MC
    Lebron shit, I was heading six after twenty three
    And family is everything and money is less important
    Long as your mama love you, don't ever love a woman
    I got a lot of bitches, they got a lot of feelings
    But I got that green on my eyes
    And that ain't no Donnie Simpson
    I retire you niggas, fuck you and your position!
    They play surface so slippery niggas can't even kick it
    Y'all rambling, talking shit to these bitches
    You know you real you don't say it
    You know you real, we gon feel it
    Ralph!

    Beautiful music, painting pictures that be my vision
    They gon' love me for my ambition
    Easy to dream a dream, though it's harder to live it
    Look, they gon' love me for my ambition
    Beautiful music, painting pictures that be my vision
    They gon' love me for my ambition Writer/s: Ernest Anthony Price, Olubowale Victor Akintimehin, Robert Rihmeek Williams, Tyler Matthew Carl Williams, William Leonard II Roberts
