My labels make the money and haven't rapped a fuckin' word

from Immortal Technique – Rich Man's World (1%) Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

If you thought rappers were rich, wait to you see the bank accounts of rich record label executives who probably consider theirselves far too “sophisticated” or “refined” to ever rap. THEY are the ones who see the majority of the profits generated from hip-hop culture, not the rappers that they exploit.
