"Ridin'" (originally titled "My Bitch") is an unreleased song by A$AP Rocky featuring Lana Del Rey. The song was written by Rocky and Del Rey, after their work together on Del Rey's "National Anthem" music video, and was produced by The Kickdrums. The song leaked on June 27, 2012.

Background[]

"Ridin'" was originally meant to be featured on The Kickdrums' mixtape Follow the Leaders but was cut from the final tracklist. The Kickdrums explained, "well, we had like a general consensus to go ahead and leak it," and "ASAP really wanted to use it for his album". ASAP Rocky did not end up putting the track on his album LONG.LIVE.A$AP and almost three months after the interview with The Kickdrums, the song was leaked on DDotOmen.[1]

The day after "Ridin'" leaked, Rocky posted in now-deleted tweets saying the lyrics were just for his reference saying "I care about my craft too much to give the ppl [sic] garbage like that". The Kickdrums also took to twitter to confirm that they didn't leak the track, and were as surprised as everyone else.[2] An official looking cover, assumed to be created by a fan, caused more issues with the possibility of an intentional leak by The Kickdrums. The cover used an image taken from the "National Anthem" music video of Del Rey and Rocky with orange text reading "Ridin'" on top.

The song is registered with Del Rey as the sole writer on the HFA Songfile, but her and ASAP are listed as performers. It samples the instrumental from the song "And I Panicked" by The Dramatics.

Lyrics[]

[Lana Del Rey]:
I wanna be your object of your affection
Gimme all your time, touch, money, and attention
Pick me up after school, you can be my baby
Maybe we could go somewhere, get a little crazy

He's rich and I'm wishin', um, he could be my mister yum
Delicious to the maximum, chew him up like bubble gum
I'm his pretty party favor, he says I'm his favorite flavor

[ASAP Rocky]:
Uh, uh, catch me ridin' like a bitch
Got the 645, catch me ridin' with my bitch, uh
Long hair, Lana, that's my bitch, uh
You can tell by the swagger and the lips, uh

Uh, catch me ridin' like a bitch
Got the 645, catch me ridin' with my bitch, uh
Long hair, Lana, that's my bitch, uh
You can tell by the swagger and the lips, uh

[Lana Del Rey]:
You say that I am flawless, true perfection
So give me all your drugs, props, money, and connections
Pick me up after school, actin' kinda shady
You the coolest kid in town, I'm your little lady

He's sick and I'm kissin' him, magical musician, um
Drivin' at the cinema, lovin' him and lickin' him
He's my lovely life saver, doesn't mind my bad behavior

[ASAP Rocky]:
Uh, uh, catch me ridin' like a bitch
Got the 645, catch me ridin' with my bitch, uh
Long hair, Lana, that's my bitch, uh
You can tell by the swagger and the lips, uh

Uh, catch me ridin' like a bitch
Got the 645, catch me ridin' with my bitch, uh
Long hair, Lana, that's my bitch, uh
You can tell by the swagger and the lips, uh

Swervin', swervin', gettin' all them dimes
Tell her I be doin', I be swaggin' to my prime
This ain't all the time, it happen all the time
That's a big contradiction, get your money on your mind

What? What? Tell her I be on a chase
Chasin' for that paper, yeah, you see me on that race
What? What? Tell her I be goin' first
I be goin' first and they put me in a hearse, oh

Said one big room, full of bad bitches, no
One big room and it’s full of mad bitches
Lana, Lana, tell them what it is
Tell ‘em that you do it, and you mean you do it big
I said one big room, full of bad bitches, no
It's one big room and it’s full of mad bitches
I said Lana, Lana, tell 'em what it is
Tell ‘em when you do it that you only do it big

Uh, uh, catch me ridin' like a bitch
Got the 645, catch me ridin' with my bitch, uh
Long hair, Lana, that's my bitch, uh
You can tell by the swagger and the lips, uh

Uh, catch me ridin' like a bitch
Got the 645, catch me ridin' with my bitch, uh
Long hair, Lana, that's my bitch, uh
You can tell by the swagger and the lips, uh
