"They doubted me in person, now they feeling like dummies/But I never gave a fuck 'cause I was always getting money," Soulja raps, effectively summing up his career in one line, but also showcasing the back story that makes his tales of success endearing. While "Gettin' Money" is ultimately celebratory, the beat and much of the song's content is rather ominous, and it's this stark reality that lends itself to an enjoyable authenticity.
