I treat the cash the way the government treats AIDS
I won’t be satisfied til all my niggas get it,

from Kanye West (Ft. Kid Cudi & Raekwon) – Gorgeous Lyrics on Rap Genius


Kanye has addressed this idea before, in Heard ‘Em Say

And I know that the governments administer AIDS/
So I guess we just pray like the minister say

And then in Roses:

You know the best medicine go to people that’s paid/
If Magic Johnson got a cure for AIDS/
And all the broke muh'fuckers passed away

While we here at RG certainly understand how the AIDS-as-government-conspiracy idea became popular (a legacy of racist medical experiments will do that), it happens to not be true. See here for an excellent debunking by radical activist David Gilbert.

ALSO, a reference to the line from a Notorious B.I.G. song.
