First off, I'm a start charging y'all per compliment
You give to me, see how much purse I can earn off of it
People are complimenting Earl on his rhymes so much, he’s going to start charging them money from now on, as if paying him a compliment is a commodity. From all the compliments Earl receives, he’s going to see how much money he could make. Also notice the connection between being “paid” compliments and actually being paid.
