Money can't buy you happiness that's true as hell
But happiness can't buy yo' ass this new SL

from J. Cole (Ft. Jhene Aiko) – Sparks Will Fly Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

A play on the popular idiom ‘Money Can’t Buy You Happiness’. Though Cole agrees with the statement, he points out that he wants more out of life than just happiness, specifically the new Mercedes Benz SL, which would require quite a bit of money.

Fabolous said it best:

Money can’t buy happiness but it’s a damn good down payment
