Money control niggas, white man control money
Since rappers and many other poor African Americans have become slaves to the wealth and white people still control money, than through the transitive property rappers are still slaves to white people. Money still controls the universe.
Cole is also stating that since rich businessmen control everything blacks spend our money on, they laugh at blacks when they say they are going to get money because in the end, they only going to allow white businessmen to be prosperous while blacks wind up with less money. Cole gives a similar message as Kanye does on Kanye West does on his track “New Slaves”, (even though he wanted to compete against Kanye’s album). The (old) rich people behind major corporations control money by influencing the outcome of how other people money.
