‘They call me Free Lance
I don’t write for the paper
But I write for the paper’

from Mickey Factz – Letter to Sonic Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

This can be interpreted in two ways.

  1. They call him freelance (much like a freelance journalist). He doesn’t write for the paper (freelance journalists aren’t designated to one publication, they jump around), but he writes for the paper (he writes to make money).

  2. They call him freelance (same as before, a journalist). He doesn’t write for the paper (doesn’t do it for the money), but he writes for the paper (he writes to write)
