(Jamaican man talking & Babu mixing)

Trade money
Money that looks funny but never no fake money
We don't love money but we don't hate money
More than a cat who got a Benz, bank roll and a wife
And look up to broke peeps who hold mics now
Your friend with no dough might be closer to earth
If you hold yourself back to make papes, get it straight
Community centers, rec rooms and schools
Rent money, electronic money and crew money
For the eye in the chief corner stone in thirteen
We're damn near starvin and we're dehydrated
(Chorus) 2x
Dope music, spittin everything from hash to yay
Then have 'em swingin at my door like Cassius Clay (no matter)
But comma manifest as the golden rule
Flashin trucks and jewels, but not tuckin they truck jewels
More big breaks, been dressy a little less bummy
On top of that I got a lot of people actin funny
Power to spit out your mouth cold could leave a man fold
'Cause money's blue and that's what it takes to pay rent
(Chorus) 2x
(Jamaican man talking & Babu mixing)
"Everybody got dreams of making cash money"
Approach easily, backed by walkin Evil Dee
(Share the wealth with Babu and Iriscience)
Expansion team, independent dollars, word a mouth
To get the cash crop you have to plant seed money
The same cat that battled them fools for lunch tickets
???, international money exchange
(Chorus) 4x
Trade money, trade money, trade money
Money exchange
