It’s All About the Benjamins — Puff Daddy

It's All About the Benjamins -- Puff Daddy

It’s all about the Benjamins, baby
It’s all about the Benjamins, baby
Goodfellas

Now . . . what y’all wanna do?
Wanna be ballers? Shot-callers?
Brawlers who be dippin’
In the Benz with the spoilers
On the low from the jake in the Taurus

Tryin’ to get my hands
On some grants like Horace
Yeah, livin’ the raw deal, three course meals
Spaghetti, fettuccine, and veal
But still, everything’s real in the field
And what you can’t have now
Leave in your will
But don’t knock me for tryin’ to bury
Seven zeros, over in Rio de Janeir-y
Ain’t nobody’s hero, but I wanna be heard
On your hot 9-7 everyday, that’s my word
Swimmin’ in women
With they own condominiums
Five plus fives, who drive Millenniums
It’s all about the Benjamins, what?
I get a fifty pound bag of . . . for the mutts
Five carats on my hands with the cuts
In something European
Chromed out with a clutch, what

[ Jadakiss ]

I wanna hold figures . . . being a broke . . .
Drinkin’ malt liquor, drivin’ a broke Viga
I’m with Mo’ sippers
Watched by gold diggers
Rocking Girbaud denims with gold zippers
Lost your touch
We kept ours, poppin’ Cristals
Freakin’ the three-quarter reptiles
Enormous cream, forest green Benz jeep
For my team so while you sleep I’ma scheme
We see through, that’s why
Nobody never gon’ believe you
You should do what we do
Stack chips like Hebrews
Don’t let the melody intrigue you
‘Cause I leave you, I’m only here
For that green paper with the eagle

[ Sheek Louch ]

I’m strictly tryin’ to cop
Those colossal-sized Picasso’s
And have papi flip . . .
Outside Delgado’s Tienda
With cash flowin’ like Sosa
And a Latin chick transportin’
In the chocha Stampedin’ over
Pop Mo’s, never sober
Flexin’ Range Rovers
Dealin’ weight by Minnesota
Avoidin’ narcs
With camcorders and Chevy Novas
Stash in the building
With this chick named
Willona From Daytona
When I was young I wanted to bone her
But now I only hit chicks
Who win beauty pageants
Trickin’ and takin’ me skiin’ at the Aspens
Gangsta mental, stay poppin’ Cristal
Pack a black pistol in the Ac’ coupe
That’s dark brown Pinkie ringin’
Gondolas with the man singin’ Italian music
Down the river with your chick clingin’
To my bizzalls, player, you mad false
Actin’ hard when you as . . . as RuPaul’s

It’s all about the Benjamins, baby
It’s all about the Benjamins, baby
Now . . . what y’all wanna do?
Wanna be ballers? Shot-callers?
Brawlers who be dippin’
In the Benz with the spoilers
On the low from the jake in the Taurus

[ Lil’ Kim ]

What the blood clot
Wanna bumble with the Bee
Bzzz, throw a hex on the whole family
Dressed in all black like The Omen
Have your friends singin’,
“This is for my homie”
And you know me
From makin’ . . . so sick
Floss in my Six, with the ‘Lex on the wrist
If it’s murder, you know she wrote it
German Ruger for yo’ ass, bitch, deepthroat it
Know you wanna feel the womb
‘Cause it’s platinum-coated
Take your pick, got a firearm you shoulda toted
Suck a . . . all that . . .
You kick, player-hatin’ from the sidelines
Get your own . . . why you ridin’ mine?
I’m a Goodfella kinda lady
Stash 380’s in Mercedes
Puffy, hold me down, baby!
Only female in my crew
And I kick it like a . . . do
Pull the trigger, too . . .

[ Notorious B.I.G. ]

I been had skills, Cristal spills
Hide bills in Brazil, about a mill’
The ice grill make it hard to figure me
Liquor be kickin’ me in my . . .
Undercover, Donnie Brasco
Left my East Coast girl the Bentley to twirl
While my West Coast shorty push the chrome 740
Rockin’ Redman and Naughty
Where my kitty cat?
Half a brick of yay in the bra where her . . . at
And I’m livin’ that for life, we push weight
. . . the state pen . . . at Penn State
Listen close, it’s Francis, the Praying Mantis
Attack with the MAC, my left hand spit
Right hand grip on the whip
For the smooth getaway
Player haters, get away or my lead will spray
Squeeze off ’til I’m empty, don’t tempt me
Only to Hell I send thee, all about the Benjis
