Too $hort: “I don't think anyone remade ['Hollywood Swangin''] before I did. I pulled that out the crates, man. That hadn't been touched by any rappers. But that was more like 'The Ghetto' part two. That wasn't anything much more than that. Just revisiting the concept of 'The Ghetto.'

"We upped it a little bit. Put money in the ghetto and talked about how motherfuckers was really balling in the ghetto. 'The Ghetto' is more like talking about like, we're not struggling in the hood, like we're living good. 'Money in the Ghetto' was like, look we fucking living like Hollywood in the ghetto.”
