The more successful, the more stressful
The more and more I transform to Gordon Gekko

from Jay Z – "Grammy Family" Freestyle Lyrics on Rap Genius


Gordon Gekko, portrayed by Michael Douglas, was the irredeemably greedy corporate raider in Oliver Stone’s 1987 movie Wall Street (and now its 2010 sequel). Gekko’s most famous line in the movie is “Greed, for lack of a better word, is good.” See the jaw-dropping speech that contains that line here

Jay breaks the first and last name and uses them as individual words. Transform and Gecko related to each other, because a gecko lizard transforms its colors in certain environments. Gordon relates to race to a billion referencing Jeff Gordon the professorial Nascar driver
