1. “Rap-wise, I’m like penny-wise, copper Foamposites, penny Pennys/Never penny-pinch, paid a pretty penny for the image, not a blemish/Epitome, a kindred spirit” — Willie the Kid, ‘Marina’ lyrics
But not quite all the way. Willie the Kid absolutely bodies his verse on this song, making a poetic masterpiece out of what would in most hands be a simple brag about having enough money to hang out on a boat all day. These lines are the best of the bunch. He puts a playful, materialistic spin on the “penny-wise but pound-foolish” saying while taking the “penny” imagery through the entire rhyme. If you pay close attention, you’ll even notice that the third “penny” refers to Penny Hardaway shoes, not to the currency.
