“ambition”
(feat. meek mill & rick ross)

[intro:]
the time is now on everything
took my heart away from money
aint interested in fame
but i pray that never change
ambition is priceless
it’s something that’s in your veins
and i put that on my name

[meek mill:]
uh, the only hope i had was selling dope
was on my grind cause times was harder than the cellar floor
my momma taught me never steal and never tell on folks
i grew up looking up to n*gg*s that was selling c*ke
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 no signal when i was texting
the n*gg*s 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 p*ss, i’ll be the corner back
me and folarin mmg gon bring that warner back

[hook:]
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?)

[rick ross:]
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 n*gg* 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 sh*t and i put that on my name
and i doubt that ever change

[hook]

[wale:]
well wishes to my opposition
you n*gg*s probably cop a plea before you cop a pistol
i got nothing against them, they got f*cking potential
but every n*gg* who can read gotta get his issue
subscribe n*gg*s 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 zmt
lebron sh*t, i was heading 6 after 23
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 b*tches, they got a lot of feelings
but i got that green on my eyes
and that ain’t no donnie simpson
i retire you n*gg*s: f*ck you and your position!
they play surface so slippery n*gg*s can’t even kick it
y’all rambling, talking sh*t to these b*tches
you know you real you don’t say it
you know you real, we gon feel it
ralph!

[outro:]
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
