Milk is chillin, Giz is chillin
What more can I say? Top billin
That’s what we get, got it good
And since you understood, would you
Do a dance, dance the Two
If, you can dance it’s easy to do
Audio 2: Top Billin’; What More Can I Say (1988)
Hell, this made no sense even back in 1988, but BPM still loves the cut. Well….actually it does, “I get the paper so I don’t care.” This will make no sense to a lot of people but for BPM this cut has always been synonymous with the negotiation maxim of if-you-don’t-ask-you-don’t-get.
In any negotiation you have to state your opening gambit with authority or no one will bite. The momentum of the negotiation is yours to control if the first salvo is convincing and backed. Milk and Giz have no trepidation; all they want you to know is that they are always given top-shelf. Do you understand our track record, my friend across the table? Once Milk and Giz get you convinced that they are serious about this stance, the momentum of the deal falls into place shortly thereafter.
