Big Smoke: Yeah, yeah, it's cool. Now, the way I see it is that we don't have a choice. Ain't nothing to feel bad about. You put a gun to a brother's head, brother's gonna do what he's told, no matter if he's a fool or a wise man. You don't want a bullet in the brain, but if you can make it work and make some benjamins while you at it, then that's cool.

1 Answer 1


This is very easy to just look up in a search engine of your choice. I searched 'benjamins meaning' and the first result was:

Today's word is Benjamins. It is a noun meaning hundred dollar bill. The word comes from the name of a famous American whose face is showing on the hundred dollar bill. His name is Benjamin Franklin. Therefore, a Benjamin means a hundred dollars.

Also found in the Merrian-Webster dictionary:

Benjamin noun (2)
Definition of Benjamin (Entry 2 of 3)
US slang
: a hundred dollar bill
Along the way, he amassed a small fortune, which he keeps in neat stacks of Benjamins in a closet by his bed.
— Ben Mezrich
