Hammer in the left ready when the price isn't

from Earl Sweatshirt (Ft. Vince Staples) – Burgundy Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Earl is saying he’d rob a store with a gun for things he couldn’t afford.

Also, notice the wordplay, the hammer will be in his “left” hand when the price is not “right”.

Also, there is a rumored unreleased/rare song by Earl called “Arm & Hammer”. He could be referring to the song and or someone selling it for a price.
