"Money Maker" is considered one of Luda's biggest bangers, and it's for good reason. The song is produced by Pharrell Williams after all, and it topped the Hot 100. So it should come at no surprise it won the Grammy for Best Rap Song in 2007, becoming one of the three of Luda's Grammys.
Below are some notable lyrics to "Money Maker," per Genius.
