Khaleel Mandel on “Dollar$”:

I wanted to rap over some funk. When I made the beat first I had the aesthetics of Sidney Poiter’s “Let’s Do it Again” in mind. This’s a record where I’m utilizing one of my favorite tools – Personification. I’m not only talking about my open affection for the dollar itself, I’m expressing many shades and sides of my relationship with the asset. I’m exercising an ability to master comprehending dollars’ roles, while grappling with a power of my own I’ve only recently discovered. Mastering myself.
