So I ball so hard mothafuckas wanna fine me
First niggas gotta find me
What's 50 grand to a mothafucka like me
Can you please remind me?

from Kanye West (Ft. Jay Z) – Niggas in Paris Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Balling hard equals a rough foul every now and again. The actual ballers of the NBA have been cracking down lately and handing out large fines, one of them to Jay-Z. He was fined by the NBA for visiting the Kentucky Wildcats locker room. NBA employees (Hov is, as he often brags, a minority owner of the NBA’s Brooklyn Nets) are not allowed to communicate with players who aren’t draft eligible. (Found him)

With his $450 million net worth, $50k doesn’t even hurt his pockets, whereas it’s “a life changing amount of money for normal people.”

Fun facts — 50 grand is a recurring figure in Hova’s life: he also famously dropped a $50,000 tip after a night out at Scarpetta, and bet 50k he’d spit his “One Minute Man” remix verse flawless. Also, Hov revealed at a concert that the fire marshals at his Magna Carter Tour threatened to fine a “substantial amount” if he incited a mosh pit during “Niggas In Paris”, to which Hov responded “WHAT’S 50 GRAND TO A MOTHERFUCKER LIKE ME, CAN YOU PLEASE REMIND ME?!”
