Money is power, you niggas better wake up
For 50, money is of vital importance because it gives him power and sets him above the ‘workers.’ According to him, those who say ‘money isn’t everything’ are deluding themselves.
This theme is addressed by the legendary economic theorist Karl Marx in an essay titled ‘The Power of Money.’ Marx states: “The extent of the power of money is the extent of my power…Thus, what I am and am not capable of is by no means determined by my individuality. I am ugly, but I can buy for myself the most beautiful of women…I, according to my individual characteristics, am lame, but money furnishes me with twenty-four feet. Therefore I am not lame. I am bad, dishonest, unscrupulous, stupid; but money is honoured, and hence its possessor.”
