Y'all nick and dime, if a brick was 'round you might need a forklift
Compared to Wale you’ve only got petty cash. Wale uses a nice weight metaphor here.
Nickels and dimes are worth next to nothing — light money. Being that poor, a brick of cash (A hundred notes branded together, 40 times, hence 4,000 notes) would be heavy money.
Now because you’re such an idiot and not know what a real brick looked like, you’d require a forklift! Not for Wale though, he’s used to being a big baller.
