RO: I think so. Doesn't it make sense to you?

LR: No. For one thing MJG says "I keep 25 lighters on my dresser." The "I gots to get paid." was added later by Lil' KeKe.

RO: My brother is always wrong.

LR: It came from MJG. Then Lil' KeKe said it on a Screw tape. Then DEA made a song from it. Then DMD made a song from it. Now ZZ Top.

RO: Have you played your mix of the ZZ Top song "I Gotsta Get Paid" on your [90.1 FM KPFT] show, Damage Control?

LR: Yes, I have.

RO: What did your cohosts DJ Chill and Zeak think about it?

LR: Chill said exactly what I said. Zeak is so unpredictable I can't even remember.
