My typical commute lasts about 15 minutes, and during that time I switch between several popular radio stations. And you know I get excited when I hear money lyrics. Here are my 3 favorite rap lyrics from this year with some explanations.
Coincidentally, all three of these songs peaked at #1 on the weekly top Rap Songs released by Billboard. And two of them involve Drake, which makes sense (as me why offline).
1: “Work too hard to be ballin’ on a budget”
Song: My Last – Chris Brown(0:24)
It’s great to hear that at least the budget was a consideration, even if he decided that he doesn’t like budgets either. Hopefully the rest of America doesn’t take his actions and apply them to their lives.
2: “Yeah, too much money, aint enough money You know the feds listening, [expletive] what money?”
Song: I’m On One – DJ Khaled ft. Drake, Rick Ross, and Lil Wayne (3:27)
The radio version doesn’t have the expletive, but the meaning remains the same. I hate when people cheat on their taxes, but I find the line hilarious nonetheless. Maybe he’s talking about just using some nifty tax deductions? I don’t know, but singing about it is probably him just talking a big game rather than actually hiding money from the IRS now that all eyes are on him.
3: “Me, myself, and all my millions”
Song: Headlines – Drake (2:08 mark)
Drake talks about life as a celebrity, and this line sums it up perfectly. When it comes down to it, he’s by himself – with all his money of course.
