I've been hearing the line "Fuck bitches / Get money" in hip hop songs recently. I mostly noticed it lately in a couple of notable songs by Lil Wayne and other Young Money affiliated artists, but through some casual searching, the term seems to originate in pop culture from a Notorious B.I.G. song called "Get Money."
Until recently I assumed that the term was supposed to be a tongue-in-cheek raison d'être for hip hop figures; that is, to have sex with lots of women and to make a lot of money, in rock-star fashion.
But I sometimes see young people use the phrase as a hustler mantra, to disregard the pursuit of women/love for the pursuit of money/status/career. The female counterpart would be "Fuck niggas / Get money."
Could I get some clarification on this, and possibly an explanation for how this latter meaning could be popularized when it (in my opinion) clashes with the hyper-masculine rock star image in mainstream hip hop culture? I know this phrase's precise meaning is in some dispute in pop culture.
