Recently I was watching the television show Breaking Bad. There's a sentence of dialogue from season 2, episode 6 that confused me:

Jesse Pinkman: You got something for me?
Skinny Pete: Yeah, I found 'em.
Jesse Pinkman: Is this a "five" or an "S"?
Skinny Pete: Five, yo. No wait... S. No, no... yeah, five.
Jesse Pinkman: Yeah? Jesus, how the hell do you spell "street" wrong? S-T-R-E-A-T?
Skinny Pete: Hey, man, I'm slingin' mad volume and fat stackin' benjies, you know what I'm sayin'? I can't be all about, like, spelling and sh-t.

I am really confused as to the meaning of the last sentence, especially the words slinging and stacking here.

    I am distributing very large quantities (of narcotics?) and amassing large stacks of $100 bills. (The $100 bill has a portrait of Benjamin Franklin.) – StoneyB Mar 14 '15 at 22:01

    It should go without saying that this is not Standard English. – Kyle Strand Mar 15 '15 at 5:58

Slinging = selling drugs

Mad volume = a crazy amount

Fat stacking = creating large stacks of

Benjies = $100 bills (which feature Benjamin Franklin)

Thus: I am selling a crazy amount of drugs and making a ton of money.
