That's life's enigma, long as life's within us
We gonna sin a lot and pray that Christ forgive us
Fuck it!
Ice the wrists and raise the price on these niggas

from Jay Z (Ft. DMX) – Money, Cash, Hoes Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

“Ethics”, by Jay-Z:

Step 1: Sin
Step 2: Repent
Step 3: Rescind repentance
Step 4: Raise the price on your drugs so you can buy diamond watches

Sinning and counting on being forgiven is reminiscent of Saint Augustine’s attitude in The Confessions of St. Augustine (Chap. 2)
