Why give a bitch your inch
When she rather have nine?

from Chris Brown (Ft. French Montana & Lil Wayne) – Loyal (East Coast version) Lyrics on Rap Genius


This has elements of the saying “give someone an inch and they’ll take a mile” which means that these types of girls are greedy, so should you provide them with a taste of the flashy lifestyle then they’re most likely gonna take more than you bargained for.

This could this be also reference to the size of his manhood… (Why give her a little bit of pleasure with gifts here and there when she’s eventually going to aggressively pull you in and force you to give her much more — like a true Gold Digger)? Knowing Weezy, probably.

Finally, might this possibly be a truly tenuous reference to the band NIИ (Nine Inch Nails), playing on that old phrase?

This chick would rather fuck with successful folk like NIИ than with some broke ass guys.

Either way, Wayne is suggesting that an ordinary guys can’t compete with rich and famous musicians like himself when it comes to secretly disloyal girls; they can spend what they perceive to be a lot of money on her but the girl’s always gonna wanna move on up.

This goes along with what Chris Brown said in the last verse:

You done spent your bread on her
And it’s all for nothing
