  1. I wonder if they get in trouble with the label execs when that happens?

    Is signing or writing on money considered defacing it? I see money with writing on it all the time, and it still spends.
     
  3. I think technically it's illegal, but it's too impractical to try and enforce it and the bills get removed from circulation in a few years anyway.

    they just made that law so they could add time on to people who are making money in their basment. Like curfew. Nobody enforces it. Just when your acting stupid.
     
  5. i think it may be illegal to deface money and then try to pass it on as legal tender... why would it be illegal otherwise, if it belongs to you?

    His attempt at singing should be a crime.

    That one song on the tv and radio with Ahanti he sounds like a goat trying to sing. what a loser.
     
  7. I though the problem here was the fact that he blew off a promo interview to gamble, not the fact that he was autographing money.

    I wonder if Ja Rule and other rappers are really as wealthy as they appear to be. Shouldn't they be worried about recouping the cost of their albums? Or don't they care?
     
  8. Money ain't a thang y'all....til they reposses your boots.
     
  9. I wish I could live like Ja. Get to skip t.v. interviews and hand out $50 bills! Hopefully time will catch up with him, and he'll pull a Hammer.

    (pull a Hammer= go bankrupt):D

    But it doesn't really belong to you. Think about it...
    That $20 bill in your wallet hasn't always been there. Currency circulates constantly and when it is destroyed it can no longer circulate. It cost $ to make new $ to replace the destroyed $! :D
     
  11. that doesn't ACTUALLY make sense to you, does it?
