Ain’t it “on the funk train”? Cause I know Redman samples a lot of James Brown on his first two albums (like everybody else did back in those days) & he has a song titled “The Night Train” which I hope y'all already know.
Eric B. & Rakim also released a song called I Know You Got Soul on Paid In Full.
Reference to the previous line: wearin sneakers from 86 in the 90’s only mean one thing; you either broke as fuck or been in jail for a long time.
He sells crack at an efficiency unpresented in history, has means to escape five-O & ways to get crack as cheap as possible no one has ever discovered. In other words, he’s a franchise player.
The phrase “I’m eatin” (or “I ain’t eatin” if that’s the case) means to maintain, get money, be able to put food on the table. Ramadan is the fasting month for muslims, where you are not allowed to eat while the sun is up. Ramadan is one of the most extreme fasting traditions in this world, which means that you ain’t (literally) eatin.
50 makes a lot of references to islam on Power Of The Dollar despite the fact that he is Christian, Catholic judging by the crosses he wears. To compare anything to the qu'ran or islam is a great sin within the religion, 50 named one track “Ghetto Qu'ran” which is a perfect example of how he provoced muslims as naming it “Ghetto Bible” is a sin according to Christianity.
In the hood, it’s every man for himself. Don’t trust nobody, trust’ll get you smoked.
All y'all that don’t know South Central, listen up closely.

Eminem discovered 50 Cent & brought him before Dr. Dre, whom would sign him & later produce for his real debut album in 2003, Get Rich Or Die Tryin'. When The Game came up, Dre wanted him to be on 50’s G-Unit. Game would fulfill his role in G-Unit instantly by puttin' meat on the already hot beefs 50 was involved in. This implying that Game told Dre he would “carry the heat” for 50 Cent.
Prodigy has over the years made a lot of references to his father. Instead of being the stereotypical hood father, whom leaves the mother as soon as she’s pregnant, P’s pops was a real G. In the song “Quite Storm” from 1999 platinum certified album “Murda Muzik”, P told us that his father learned him how to aim & shoot. He told Prodigy to always be the baddest man on the block, cause if he ever met someone who could challenge him he’d most probably get shot.
