I climax from paper
Then ask why is life worth living?

from Jay Z (Ft. Nas) – Success Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Nas has a fetish for money; when he counts his cash, he orgasms and then can’t help but feel “maybe, just maybe, I need to start reassessing my priorities in life”

Or he could just mean figuratively, juxtaposing money with sex… when men finish that nut (climaxing), they minds are clear from major sexual distractions and tend to think… nas is wondering about life and its meaning in a similar fashion, just with his money
