Fifty dollars for a t-shirt, that’s just some ignorant bitch shit
I call that getting swindled and pimped, shit
I call that getting tricked by business
That shirt’s hella dough

If you are paying $50 for a t-shirt you are just getting robbed. You could get one just as dope at a thrift shop for way cheaper.
