Will quotes a Notorious B.I.G. line from "Mo Money Mo Problems
" about being on the cover of Fortune
magazine, which actually happened to the rapper/producer. He told The Associated Press
: "The line is, 'Willy be flossing. Geeking on the cover of Fortune
. Five double-oh sending flows to Martians.' The fact that I sent a song to Mars
is like 'Whoaaaa!' And then being on the cover of Fortune
magazine and Biggie Smalls saying that in a rhyme never having been on the cover of Fortune
was just like 'Whoa!' Just 'whoa' moments.
"My music career had nothing to do with that," he continued "The cover of Fortune
came from recent disciplines and sacrifices and dreams I've been having in the other part of my career. That's philanthropy, being an entrepreneur and thinking outside the box."
