And you know why they made the new twenties?
Cause I got all the old ones
In 1998 the fed redesigned the $20 bill in order to make counterfeiting more difficult
Jadakiss suggests that the real reason they needed new twenties was not to stymie counterfeiters, but rather because he had all the old ones
Also notice that this is the only “why” in the song that is phrased as an explanation (“and you know why”) rather than a question (“why…?”). The idea being that, though the world is a confusing place, one thing is clear: Jadakiss has a lot of money
If you like the old ones, Jada is selling some of his vintage $20 bills for $25 on his website.
