The connection between money and speech has been strong in T.I.'s music lately. In 2014, he rapped, If it ain't about the money/ Ain't no use in you ringin' my line, stop wastin' my time. Last year he noted, If you ain't talking money get out my face. On his latest track, he declares, Lotta nigga talk, you don't ever get paid/ Fuck niggas hate, broke bitches throw the shade.
This topic brings out the best in T.I., who has consistently been rapping at a high level. He is dexterous and dismissive here: Focused on the money, fuck shit, forget about it/ I bought a Lamborghini, wrecked it, give a shit about it/ Get up out it, call an Uber, go and get a new one/ I gotta run a bag up, it's extra for the blue one.
