On It

Official Releases:
Studio Version (3:01) – If
Radio Edit (3:01) – If (Clean Radio Edit), On It

“On It” was released as the third single from If as a part of the It single set (along with “Pay for It” and “Issues”). It peaked at #2 on the Billboard Hot Singles chart. A remix contest was announced shortly before the release of “If”; remixers were provided with vocal stems and were given the opportunity to remix the track without having heard it, though the track was made available for streaming before the end of the contest. The winning remix by Antron 2600 appears on the “On It” remix single.

Lyrics:
wait
I masturbate
let another motherfucker come and share my fate
and pray
catastrophe
I’m gonna kill a motherfucker with a fax machine
and break
it down
for y’all
to seeeeeeeee
cause I’m on it
yes indeed
on it
watch me bleed
on it
rest in peace
on it
hey hey hey
you are so good so far
you are so good so far
better than this
better than that
better watch out when you get me going going going
fake
I’m not awake
it’s not my fault you can’t relate
doubt
corporate accounts
I’m gonna hurt somebody with my 24 ounce
and break it down
for y’all
to seeeeeeeee
cause I’m on it
yes indeed
on it
watch me bleed
on it
rest in peace
on it
hey hey hey
you are so good so far
you are so good so far
I’m gonna be the one with my face in a magazine
I’m gonna be the one I have to face
better than this
better than that
better watch out when you get me going
in the morning I have come
rip the walls rip the bass
in the morning I’m gone
putting you in your place
