[Hook: Method Man]
Cash rules everything around me:
CREAM, get the money
Dollar, dollar bill y'all
One of the most referenced and quoted hooks in the history of hip hop (perhaps THE most referenced), and in music history in general.
Method Man is not glorifying money and excess; rather, he’s saying that money holds power, and is a factor of major decisions made in the world he lives in. Those who have it, have power and those who don’t, won’t get up anywhere; sort of a way of saying “Money is the root of all evil”, if you will.
