Bragging about the speed with which your cash-flow hemorrhages is another established African American entertainment trope, stretching back before Little Richard's "Fool about my money/Don't try to save" and well beyond Nelly's boast that he can "blow 30 mill like I'm Hammer." But an otherwise lame skit on Hood Rich, which advertises for 2040's "I Can Still Get It Up Tour" (featuring the Hot Men, Big Bow Wow, Old Elderly Bastard), hints at the underside of profligacy as rebellion: The tour's proceeds go to the OGWIF—the Original Gangstas Without Insurance Fund. Maybe the Millionaires will learn that your life expectancy increases drastically when you stop working the corner, and there are better long-term investments than gold-and-diamond dental work. After all, you can't stay lil forever.
