The one who mostly keep cash but brag about the broke times

from MF DOOM (Ft. DJ Cucumber Slice) – Rhymes Like Dimes Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

MF DOOM was straight homeless for part of his life. Now he’s always got some cash. Either from, you guessed it, selling rhymes or selling dimes.

The lyric itself notes the ironic fact, that in his rhymes, Doom bragged that he is broke, and at the same time they have earned him a fortune.

He commonly uses this theme, much like in Deep Fried Frenz, he raps that even though he’s rich, he acts broke, because “jealousy: the number 1 killer among black folk”
