Birdman has been known for his "I get money" swagger over the years, and his "get money" hand rub has become one of his trademarks. During a recent interview with Complex magazine's Insanul Ahmed, Birdman broke his "get money" hand rub down.
"My palms do itch a lot, I swear they do. So I got tired of scratching them and just went to rubbing my hands. They itch a lot, man. So I just got tired of scratching them and just went to rubbing my hands. But it just became a habit and it's like I'm known for the Isht. I'm like "Damn, I'm doing this Isht that much that people are recognizing it? But then I found myself doing it so now I'm like, Fawk it, I'm going to keep doing it."
"I really wanted to let them know that at the end of the day, it's really about money. Don't get it twisted. I'm a hard worker and everything with me is, if I work hard I should get paid for it. Everything with me, I try to symbolize something flashy like jewelry or a car. The rubbing hands is a symbol of hustling, so it goes back to the money."
