"Ready for Whatever" is a song by American rapper T.I., released as the sixth single from his sixth studio album Paper Trail (2008), the unofficial predecessor to Paperwork (2014). The song was produced by Southern hip hop record producer Drumma Boy.

In a recent interview for HopHopDX, Drumma Boy revealed that Ready for Whatever had to be edited at least 25 different times at the request of T.I.'s lawyers because of the song's detailing of his 2007 arrest for gun possession.[1]
