Wiz Khalifa makes more on weed than most drug dealers without selling a single dime bag. I explained why in my Forbes story “Wiz Khalifa’s High Earnings.”

The only time I met Jay-Z — after writing the unauthorized biography Empire State of Mind — was in Philadelphia, right after I walked out of a Porta-Potty. I told him I’d written a book about him. He pretended not to hear me and started to walk away. Then, over his shoulder, he yelled, “That book was horrible,” cackled, and sauntered off. As far as I’m concerned, mission accomplished.

Keep in mind that the Cash Kings list of top earners is different from the Forbes Five list of wealthiest rappers. The former measures annual income, the latter measures net worth.

50 Cent is the only rapper besides Jay-Z, Diddy and Dre to ever top the Forbes Hip-Hop Cash Kings list. He did so in 2008 with a whopping $150 million payday — the highest annual payout on record for any rapper — inspiring this song:

Now, they can probably afford to spend $50 for a t-shirt. At the very least, I expect them to make the move from Good Will to Buffalo Exchange.

"Sugar plum candy coated lines for the dummies / Decoded h..." (Jay Electronica – The Announcement) | accepted

Also a shout-out to his new boss Jay-Z, who released a memoir called “Decoded” shortly before signing Jay Electronica to Roc Nation. Dream Hampton (referenced later in the song) was the book’s ghostwriter.

Correct lyric is not “quart of water” but “quarter water,” i.e. the bottles of flavored water that sell for $0.25 at your friendly neighborhood NYC bodega.

More likely referring to Branson B, who was Biggie’s weed man and Cristal provider, and by all accounts a real mensch:
