Give me the chills but these mills, well, they make me hot
Money, for some reason, makes a man attractive. (hot)
Even though Jay momentarily gets bothered by his mothers dreams-visions-nightmares of his demise, the possibility of being rich is an even more attractive prospect no matter how dangerous the activity of dealing may be.
Nice wordplay on the juxtaposing of chills and hot. To have the chills is associated with coldness(temperature) but also fears. ‘Hot’ in this case is to express attraction but plays on the opposite meaning of cold from the word ‘chills’.
