For T.I. it’s all “About the Money”. He started out with nothing but through his music he’s earned his money. “I went from rags to riches to a feature with Tip.” Everything he does is to make money. He tells his ‘associates’ not to contact him if it’s not money related – he doesn’t have time to waste on them. “If it ain't about the money/Ain't no use in you ringin' my line, stop wastin' my time." He expects the respect he thinks he deserves and if he doesn’t get it he’ll get it one way or another. “Niggas disrespect me, I'm a catch a felony."
