“People complain that pro athletes make a lot of money” said Patrick Ewing, “but what they don’t understand is that we need a lot of money because we spend a lot of money,” he concludes. The quote may be attributed to the world of sports, but the crossover to the music industry isn’t a long shot.
While there’s nothing wrong with getting together with the homies and spitting a few bars, Long Island’s Typ-iLL understands that in order to be successful in the rap game, you need to treat your talents like a business. But with the money comes the problems that can arise from becoming successful; bitter people who ride your coattails for a chance to make it big and use you as a stepping stone for your own agenda.
“100 Dollar Bill” has Typ-iLL getting his Scarface on–starting from a humble beginning to envisioning his future empire and the steps he’ll take in order to own the world. Over a crisp, head nodding beat from Sick Luke, iLL drops a series of hardbody bars that’ll get you motivated to get on your grind.
