Quick buck, maybe a gold chain
Since he came back to Fahrenheit Earl’s started making money so he’s thinking about copping some jewelry.
Additionally two more requests Earl would like to have granted before he fulfils his promise to Gil Scott-Heron.
The contrast between his lofty ideals for the future and his present concerns is somewhat ironic. Earl might be calling out his famously materialistic colleagues in the rap game, or he might be making a little wry fun of himself.
