Niggas with no money act like money isn't everything

from Drake (Ft. Nicki Minaj) – Up All Night Lyrics on Rap Genius


money isn't everything

Drake is referring to the cliché “Money isn’t everything.” by saying that those who are saying it don’t have money/are not in his position and that if they did have money/were in his position, they would not say that anymore.

This word play with the best of both worlds and the homophone “is in” and “isn’t.” People with no money either act like money is in everything, or money isn’t everything. They’re either trying to fake it until they make it, or act as if they don’t need it.
