Lyric: “Wayne put me right here, that's who I get the paper with/I hope that my success never alters our relationship”
Complex says: Lauryn Hill once said, “It’s funny how money changes situations,” and it might be the realest shit she ever wrote. So many duos—from EPMD to Organized Konfusion—have let the money and fame get the best of them.
