Nigga, money talks, and Mr. Ed

from Drake (Ft. Lil Wayne) – The Motto Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

You’re hearing it straight from the horse’s mouth:

  1. Mr. Ed is the titular talking horse of a 1960s sitcom.
  2. “Money talks” is a popular expression meaning that anyone can talk big, but if you can prove it with your bank account, then you’re really “talking.”

This is a typical Lil Wayne joke: Money is the only thing that talks in this world—that and Mr. Ed, the horse that talks. Hence his little giggle afterwards.

Props to bungs04.
