Ready for Whatever

Ready for Whatever

T.I.

Ready For Whatever is a track off of Paper Trail explaining T.I.’s reasoning and logic to his actions in 2007, when he attempted to purchase several silenced machine guns.

Drumma Boy described in an October 22, 2014 interview with HipHopDx that T.I was required by his lawyers to alter the lyrics to the song before it could be released:

The first song that he recorded was ‘Ready For Whatever’ and he had to change the lyrics up on that song about 25 times because the lawyers were just so strict about how he was telling that particular story,” Drumma Boy says in a clip that premiered as a part of today’s DX Daily (October 22). “The first version was just all out telling you everything and then he had to kind of decode, and then he had to decode again. He had to proofread. They made him edit that song about 25 times. But just the finished results of ‘Ready For Whatever,’ if you go back and listen to it, you really see how he was feeling. You really start to understand what he was going through and why he would have so many pistols. In a life like that, having that much money, and feeling like you gotta protect your family. What else you gonna do?
