I'm royal when I flush, your highest hush'll get mushed
Like a sleigh dog, I slay dogs who are under me
I'm over men; call me Doberman, cause I'm a Pinscher of pennies
That's pretty

from Common (Ft. Ynot) – Chapter 13 (Rich Man vs. Poor Man) Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The metaphor moves fast here. The pun on “royal flush” is out of place, but then we get an extended riff on dogs — hush puppies, mushing sleigh dogs, a pun referring to how Y-Not “slays dogs”, and then a pun on the Doberman “pincher.” And what is Ynot pinching? Pennies, of course, referring to both his tightfistedness and his sexualized flirting with women — possible referents include Bond’s Moneypenny and Janet Jackson’s character from Good Times.
