I might even sell my new shit for 10 bucks too

from Ab-Soul (Ft. Kendrick Lamar) – Illuminate Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Highly successful mixtapes with original production tend to later be legitimately sold on the market independently (a la Joe Budden’s Mood Muzik series, Kendrick Lamar’s own O.verly D.edicated and Section.80, etc). Ab-Soul has taken a similar route and offered the legitimate option of purchasing or simply downloading his Long Term series material in addition to Control System.

He says he would even sell his music for a mere ten dollars, supporting his lines in the previous verse that his music is food for thought and he wants to feed it to people (i.e. he writes deep music, not for money, but, like Timbuktu city, to spread knowledge).
