You Ain't Know
Birdman & Lil' Wayne Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Yeah, I got a lot of loot, and I ain't lookin' for a lady
And you can never play me, I'm from Uptown, baby
I wake up in the mornin', take a piss, and wash my hands
Take a knee, and thank the Man, then get back to the money
You ain't know I gotta go
Where ya goin'? I gotta get back to the money
You ain't know I gotta go
Where ya goin'? I gotta get back to the money
To the money

Nigga, I ain't got a money printer
So for this paper chase I'm out runnin' sprinters
Yes, the last two Cash Money members
Shout out to the new Cash Money members
Baby and Slim still point guard and center
So much money on my mind it's all I remember
And I just bought a gun wit' a extender
And that bitch hold me up like suspenders
Cut like a blender, sharper than a bitch
They got so many pussy niggas I can make a list
Niggas wonder why I stress that I am the best
'Cause even bobble heads tell me, "yes," ha ha
Put it on the hood, I'm Holly Grove to death
I'm already good, I'm workin' on my left
A jungle on my wrist, a circus on my neck
Don't forget the Baby, no don't forget the F

You ain't know I gotta go
Where ya goin'? I gotta get back to the money
You ain't know I gotta go
Where ya goin'? I gotta get back to the money
You ain't know I gotta go
Where ya goin'? I gotta get back to the money
You ain't know I gotta go
Where ya goin'? I gotta get back to the money
To the money

Brush the platinum, grab the straps, homie, make it happen
Comin' through my neighborhood wit' fours on the Caddy
Limo tints out the pound and Uptown crackin'
Red bandanna duckin' feds, and the money stackin'
Rest in peace to Miss Gladys like everyday
We on the grind for the shine, and we gon' get paid
Spent a mill' on the wheels, custom wit' the Navi'
Two of the same whips; we doin' it big, livin' lavish

This is a Scott Storch, and I'm a hot torch
And gettin' money is my sport
And understand the rap game is my court
So I shall walk and come forth like a Rockport
Or some sort of matchin' slippers or yacht shoes
See, I don't cruise control, I control the cruise
Yes, I gets throat on a boat
And I vow to never fall like soap on a rope, and

I got a lot of loot, and I ain't lookin' for a lady
And you can never play me, I'm from Uptown, baby
I wake up in the mornin', take a piss, and wash my hands
Take a knee, and thank the Man, then get back to the money
You ain't know I gotta go
Where ya goin'? I gotta get back to the money
You ain't know I gotta go
Where ya goin'? I gotta get back to the money
You ain't know I gotta go
Where ya goin'? I gotta get back to the money
You ain't know I gotta go
Where ya goin'? I gotta get back to the money
To the money

Fresh wit' the hustle, so we bounce back on them suckers
Blowin' big, doin' gigs, got it ran in hundreds
They reppin', layin' here, we stuntin'
On the grind all the time, homie, get money
Third Ward soldier, thirteen gangsta
Seventeenth hustler, known top ranker
Money go getter, them clowns can't figure
Poppin' at the mouth like this cutter won't split 'em
Know how to survive hustlin', stayin' fly
My whole hood cried when my lil' brother died
Know I had to ride, never let it slide
It's just the G in me, and I'ma get it 'til I die, daddy

You ain't know I gotta go
Where ya goin'? I gotta get back to the money
You ain't know I gotta go
Where ya goin'? I gotta get back to the money
You ain't know I gotta go
Where ya goin'? I gotta get back to the money
You ain't know I gotta go
Where ya goin'? I gotta get back to the money
To the money

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to Birdman & Lil' Wayne's "You Ain't Know" are a declaration of their love for money, fame and hustling- their way of life. They start out the song by highlighting their wealth, and how they have no interest in women - they are driven by their entrepreneurial spirit. They are from Uptown, which is a region of New Orleans that is known for its poverty and crime, but also as a strong community with a distinct culture. Lil' Wayne talks about his morning routine of thanking God and getting back to making money, while Birdman talks about how they are still on the rise despite all their success. The chorus is a refrain of the need to get back to the grind of making money, no matter what.


The verses detail how they have become the best in the game and how they plan to stay that way. Lil' Wayne boasts about how much money he has made and how he doesn't need to print it himself, while also referencing Bobbleheads telling him he's the best. He makes allusions to his Hollygrove, New Orleans roots and the struggle to get to where he is, while also highlighting the things that come with his success, like jungle-inspired watches and massive necklaces. Birdman also references his success and how he's still working towards more of it. He talks about his custom car and how they are living their best lives, but also how they never forget where they came from, by mentioning Miss Gladys who was a beloved figure in the Cash Money community.


The song concludes with Birdman again expressing the need to get back to grinding and Lil' Wayne talking about his ability to survive and thrive in the world they live in. The song overall is a celebration of their success, but also a reminder of where they came from and what it takes to keep going.

Cut like a blender, sharper than a bitch

I'm always focused on making money
