Modern Day Fractal Lyrics

There is no question that there is wise economic advice in the lyrics of the older generations. However, it is important not to overlook the equally important lyrics from the popular musical icons of today. A few prime examples:

Fergie, "Glamorous": If you ain't got your money get your broke ass home.

Ace Mack, "Make it Rain, Remix":
It ain't no money like custom money
It ain't no bitch like a hustle bunny
Ain't no bitch gettin' none of my money
That why the money gotta clip to protect it for 'em

T.I., "Whatever You Like"
Anytime you want to pick up the telephone
You know it ain't nothin to drop a couple stacks on you
Wanted you could get it my dear
Five million dollar home, drop Bentley's I swear
and you ain't never ever gotta go in yo wallet
Long as I got rubberband banks in my pocket
Five six, rides with rims and a body kit
Ya ain't gotta downgrade you can get what I get
My chick can have what she want
And go in any store for any bag she want
And know she ain't never had a man like that
To buy you anything ya heart desire like that

It seems that there is a group of people that have definitely managed to avoid the economic downturn. At least someone is still pouring cash into the US economy.

  1. Fergie, Ace and T.I's lyrics are good examples of fractal use of language. Given their popularity and interest in money they might consider publishing a newsletter with their personal finance ideas and tough love solutions in personal and family spending, budgeting, saving, investing, retirement planning, and insurance.
