We gettin' to the money like it's Goldman Sachs

from Lil Wayne (Ft. Bun B, Busta Rhymes, Nas & Shyne) – Outro Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The world’s most successful investment bank; many critics argue that Goldman’s success is predicated as much on its ruthless exploitation of its political connections (ex-CEOs include Jon Corzine and Henry Paulson) as its financial savvy. Indeed, Bun B may be using this example to advertise that he makes his money illegally, since Goldman’s investing practices were subject to investigation by the SEC.

Rolling Stone journalist Matt Taibbi famously called the company “a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity.”
