Mac: That was a good song.
Tech: Little, young motherfuckin' kids getting' money, to where their kids are rich. Don't matter what color they are. I think it's wonderful that these young motherfuckers are getting' money, and I'm one of them.
Mac: That's just how it sums up for me — young motherfuckers gettin' money. That's what it is for me. I don't care about the industry or music or anything, really. It's just money and being creative and not answering to anybody.
Tech: Being able to take care of your family. 'Cause that's where we started. We got a love for hip-hop. We got a love for R&B, for rock and roll. We got love for all that shit. So when you find out that you can do it to get money to take care of your family — that is wonderful. And you got motherfuckers who say, "Aw, he's just doing it for the money." No! We all started broke as a motherfucker. Bums. I was a bum with talent. My wife had to buy our motherfuckin' marriage rings. I was a bum, dude, you know what I mean? That's how much she wanted to marry me. All I had was talent, living in Icy Rock's basement, loving music. But then I got with a shrewd businessman who said, "We can get this shit out there." ... Now it's a way that we can take care of our family. Why wouldn't you wanna do that?
Mac: If I was just wanting to start something to make money, I would start an amateur porn site because there's more money in porn than there is in music. I do music because I want to. People say, "You do it for the money." No. I would be a pimp — like, an Internet pimp ... like, with one of those porn sites where you can join nine other sites — and I would turn it out and have billions of dollars. But I do music because I wanna do something I respect.
Tech: That makes sense.
