Ready for Whatever
by T.I.



[Intro]
hey, the price of fame cost to much
like these niggas talk to much
im ready for whatever somebody better tell em'
said im ready for whatever
hey, hey, hey,

[Verse 1]
even tho my head in the clouds im planted on the pavement
how i walk around people starring in amazment
i play alotta game a well-being i aint playing wit it
they so judgemental man but they dont understand
if ya life was in jeperady erryday is you tellin me
you wouldnt need weaponry jus because of ya felony's
consider this at least i got errybody sweating me
on the streets theres people who wont rest unless i rest in peace
killed my folk a year ago still in my sleep they threatin me
peranoid ya stressin me aint nobody protecting me
im dealing wit the pressure from my partner dieing next to me
niggas know i was arrested they coming for me eventually
this was all the things that i was goin thru mentally
this could be the reason i ignore the penitionary
not mentioning new orlean niggas comin in the city
killin all summer long aint nobody pay attention

(breakdown)
now is it that hard to understand if you listen
either die or go to jail thats a hell of decision
but im wrong and i know it my excuses unimportant
im just tryna let you know that i aint think i had a choice, fereal

(hook)
i had straps in my ride gotta go to prison
you waitin on me to die you gone be waiting for a minute
boy im ready for whateva somebody betta tell em
i'll be here when the smoke clear and errything settle (fereal)
cant afford the price of fame cause it cost too much
man these sucka niggas lame and they talk to much
dat why im ready for whateva somebody tell em
i'll be here when the smoke clear and everything settle

[break down]
[T.I. Talking]
foreal, foreal, ey foreal, i said when errything settle
foreal,ey foreal, ey foreal, ey foreal i said when errything settle foreal

[Verse2]
ima man i aint perfect i admit it im guilty
but understand feel me i was riding filthy
cuz niggas out there plottin to rob me and kill me
500,000 erry year spent on security
my future was bright but now its gettin blury
cuz niggas in a hurry to find me and bury me
but surely God'll deliver me up out it
ima fighter till the heart i'll foreva be about it
ima father to my sons as it to my community
look all that i done my good out weigh the negativity
ey mentally i was focused on that littin history reapet itself
thats why he was kept in a vicinity
yes offically i broke the law but not maliciously
through all the publicity was anyone considerate
my position and the logic hidden my decision
but they caught me wit em now im off to prison, PERIOD
[Breakdown]
but is it that hard to understand if you listen
either die or go to jail thats a hell of decision
but im wrong and i know it my excuses unimportant
im just tryna let you know that i aint think i had a choice, fereal

[Hook]

[Final Breakdown]

[T.I. Talking]
Ey i said listen homeboy
you can talk all you want mayne you know what im sayin
errybody talking to the king you know what im sayin
they like escalades errybody got one
but the fact of the matter remain
if yeaint walk a mile in my shoes and yeaint live a day in my life
yeaint survive the shit i done survived
yeaint had to deal wit the shit i had to deal wit homeboy
you cant muf**kin judge me partner
i mean look at folk like sean taylor
you know what they said they said had he had a strap
he woulda lived today
you know what im sayin
now true enough i did wrong i broke the law
i deserve to be punished i understand that ight cool
but listen man i gotta house full of kids
a mama and an old lady who life in my
responsibility you dig that!?
now for all of yall who think i was jus ridin around on some dumb shit
you know im smarter than you man
you know im smarter than you dawg
ey if you think i was just being stupid
shorty i got some muf**kin ocean front property in Idaho for sale homie
if you beleive that i gotta bridge in brooklyn i wanna sell you partnah
ey man real talk in order to understand my train of thoughts
you'll have to put yo self in my position
you cant expect me to think like you cuz my life aint like yours
you know what im sayin? if you dont understand that you dont
understand english im done talking!
