In 2001, hip-hop collective Ruff Ryders dropped the third volume in their Ride Or Die series: In The "R" We Trust. The project's first single was "They Ain't Ready," which paired D Block rapper Jadakiss with the Southern whiteboy Bubba Sparxxx. The combination proved to be an unlikely victory, as both rappers absolutely demolished the Timbaland laced beat. This was an era where the legendary Timbo was deep in the hip-hop game, channeling a blacksmith and forging straight fire for rappers. With a futuristic beat and clinical verses (Jada coming in on the third verse...damn) "They Ain't Ready" proves that it can still bump in 2017.
The streets is still mine, I stay with the steel nine
And it's still on nigga I'm stonger than corn liquor
Pink-eyed, niggas pretend to be weeded
That's what the industry needed
Kiss flippin' his flow, enemies heated
