Roddy Ricch & Mustard “Ballin'” Official Lyrics & Meaning | Verified


I’m an Elliante boy now so I don’t need
no flash. I don’t need no lights no nothing. If I walk in the darkest room, if it’s a
small little light coming out the creek you gonna see it in the diamonds. For sure. Ballin’ was made in the beginning of my
career when Die Young had first came out. I made a song with Mustard. At the time, it wasn’t no album talk or
nothing. It was just “let’s just do some songs
and shit” you know what I’m saying? And just see what we can do. Because we had never been in the studio before
so we didn’t know if I was going to fuck with the vibe or if he was going to fuck with
the vibe or anything so it was just like “let’s see what we whip.” And once we whipped that shit was just crazy. He held that motherfucker for like a year. I’m not even gonna play, he kept that in
the vault for a year and really was just like “this gonna be one the ones, I gotta put
this shit out.” Soon as they hear that sample in the beginning,
people listen and they be like “oh shit. This Ballin’” and they go crazy. They start screaming and shit or they start
singing the hook before I even sing it. And then when that shit come on, I ain’t
gotta, I ain’t gotta sing that shit. A Forgi, is a Forgiatto rim. Mustard is a big fan of the Forgis. All his whips Forgi’d out, so it’s like
it was only right. I actually was driving a Jeep on Forgiattos
at the time, which is why I wrote that shit. It could simply mean, shit you trapping shit
go bad and you walking through puddles of blood. At the same time we could be talking about
trapping until you got red bottoms on. It’s just all about your perspective and
however you want to take it. I don’t even go to the mall no more like
I’ll send my partners to go. He like “oh I want to go cop some shoes.” He going to go do his own little shopping,
I’ll give him my little money I want to spend man, “if you see something you know
I like just get it.” Cause I don’t even like being out like that
no more. You know what I’m saying so. I be having my partners cop my shit. Like shit, I trust you with the drip. Fuck it. I ain’t even gonna lie. Rest in Pease Hussle. I used to call him all the time, never answers. So I used to be like “why you don’t answer?” His shit on do not disturb. If he calling you back, you important. And I kind just admired that way and I was
like fuck, I’m gonna put my shit on do not disturb. If somebody important to me, they gonna know
because I’m gonna call them back. You can’t be mad at me because I been chasing
this shit. I been chasing my lifestyle right now like I been
chasing what I knew I was gonna be. Flying PJs doing everything a nigga really
want to do. Having that jewelry tucked in the vault. Having that money, I been waking up to do
this. I be talking about the Yaahjects all the time. What a lot of people don’t know, that that’s
like the only project in Compton. Where I’m from it’s called the New Wilmington
Arms. I had them tattoo the arms on me and I always
said like the reason why I got the Arms tatted on me is because I want people to always remember
that where I’m from and I wanted to always know that like I kept where I’m from with
me. I always showed Nip love because it was like
he just showed us something different. If you didn’t have access to understand
what Jay-Z knew, Nipsey was the LA nigga that would tell you like, “bro own your own shit. Nigga like, come in nigga be the master at
a table.” You know what I’m saying, like come in and
really demand your respect. When you’re in the Maybach, you know nobody
can’t see in and you just moving through the city, floating. You can recline and really just do anything
really. It’s really a little mini office. It’s a time where you can reflect and really
think about a lot of this shit. They call me Little Bird in my hood. Bird is my big homie. Bird took me in when I ain’t really have
nothing. Showed me the ropes of life, like kind of
what my pops and shit. I felt like Bird vision is just more of like
just seeing into a birds eye view. Almost like just seeing into the future and
what we can make this shit and what we did make this shit. Even right there, that’s like a unity line. You know what I’m saying. Whoever we come across with the great energy
and with the good vibes, we fucking with you, nigga. We don’t you know what I’m saying, we’re
not dealing in that anymore we got to be more together. We lost a brother like, really to some bullshit. When do we sit back and really just try to
make a difference in what we doing. Not who knew for me, but who knew for y’all. Because I’m the nigga, I knew I was the
man. But it was like y’all didn’t know. I had the Patek on, I took all my jewelery
off because I just, sometimes I like to be free and shit like that. But the AP was actually one of the first bust
downs I got. It was white and rose gold AP. It’s almost like, we’re in traffic now. You see me and my shit and you swerve back
because you see what I’m whipping in now. Always stay the course of what you got going
on. Always keeps a pure heart even regardless
of whatever is going on around you. A dojo is where a sensei teaches his students. It’s like dough, like money. Like I’m trying to get the dough-jo like
a sensei. So it’s like if you’re a sensei, you need
a dojo. So I’m trying to get a dojo. I mean first of all we should say, free Cholo. You know what I’m saying. He is currently fighting his cases and stuff
like that and I’m 100% behind him, supporting him, trying to get him out of his situation. I just know that it’s no game. You know what I’m saying. You have to hold onto hopes of people that
are pushing on in life and you gotta hold onto them hopes at the same time provide for
your family while you’re behind bars. Like it could be crazy. If you ain’t been through it, felt it, or
understood it like don’t speak on it. Niggas talk about it but we live it. Like the shit we go through is real. The shit we done experienced is real shit,
so it’s like if you ain’t really cut from that, don’t talk about it. I remember I used to say everyday like, “man
I’m gonna be a millionaire by 21.” Now I sit back and be like “nigga what a
hundred million everyday.” I don’t want to say like a limit or I really
just want to be wealthy healthy and really just more knowledgeable in life. If I wake up and just got 40 on me, I might
slide in Barney’s. Man let me just go ahead and cop this cop
that, cop this cop that. But I know, boom I’m going to Genius this
morning. I came straight from the crib so I’m going
to Genius I’ma go and I’m gonna come back home. If I got money on me, I might slide somewhere
and do some shit I ain’t supposed to be doing.
