    How does he not know if it was 20 or 30? That is a significant difference.

    That’s his way of telling us it’s not big to him. That’s like someone saying..”Yeah it was about $10 or $11. Rappers are so halty. VH1 needs to do a hip hop special…”Where are they now?” See how halty they are when the fans stop clapping, the CD’s stop selling, the tours end, the labels stop calling, your manager quits, and your girl leaves you and the video chicks are not checking for you…..
