New York rapper Fabolous wants people to know there’s more to life than just stacking up paper for yourself. The hip-hop veteran has shelled out his personal life motivation.

Fab went to Instagram this week to let fans know his primary goal is to grab checks and make sure his family and team are financially secure.

Last week, Fab shared a Mother’s Day set of pics alongside his girlfriend Emily B.

Over the past few years, Fab and Emily have kept their relationship statuses low-key.

For unknown reasons, it took several years for the couple to publicly announce that they were dating. Strangely enough, Fabolous revealed that he was dating Emily B in an XXL interview but contradictorily told radio station Hot 97 that he was “single as a dollar bill”. Also, in 2006 Emily B moved in with him, only to move out during the filming of VH1’s reality show Love & Hip-Hop during Season 2 in 2012 (they both starred in multiple seasons). Clearly, they’ve gone through some internal issues, most of which have now gone public due to their recent legal trouble. (SOHH)
