Cause I don’t like to dream about getting paid
So I dig into the books of the rhymes that I made

from Rakim – Paid in Full Lyrics on Rap Genius


Rakim is tired of dreaming of having money, so he opens his notebook with rhymes, hoping they are good enough to make him money.

Since Paid In Full has sold over a million copies and was certified platinum in 1995, we could say his rhymes WERE good enough
