Cause only recently I been gettin' a decent fee
The checks I got from D-Dot was t-teasin' me
Kanye is referring to major label producer D-Dot, who is credited for producing hit songs such as Notorious B.I.G.’s “Hypnotize”. D-Dot (also known as The Madd Rapper) was Kanye’s mentor in the late 90s and even gave Kanye his start by “ghost-producing” for him. Kanye has addressed his past ghost-producing for D-Dot in several songs including Last Call. To this day D-Dot contests that he gave Kanye more credit for his ghost-production than Kanye claims.
Also note the play on D-Dot’s name by the way Kanye says t-teasin' me".
