Money tall like Jordan

from Kanye West (Ft. 2 Chainz, Big Sean & Pusha T) – Mercy Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Michael Jordan is pretty tall, so you know 2 Chainz is getting paid since his money is tall like the 6'6" guard. 2 Chainz himself is 6'5", so both his money and himself are tall like Jordan.

According to the U.S. Treasury, a single bill has a thickness of .0043 inches. It would take ruffly 18,140 bills to make a stack 6'6" tall. Assuming those are all hundreds, that would equal out to about $1.8 million.

Too bad his money ain’t as tall as Michael Jordan’s money—Jordan has been a millionaire since 1984 and owns the most popular basketball shoe line and an NBA team.

Also note that 2 Chainz and Kanye both end their verse with a Jordan reference.
