    'It's all about the Benjamins'

    What does it really mean and when can one use it? I'd guess it means in the lines of "it's all about the money". I'd like a clarification if someone can help...

    You are absolutely right

    Benjamins
    are 100 dollar bills
    the reason people call them Benjamins is because the face on the bill is that of Benjamin Franklin.

    hope this helps

    Whoa! Now that was fast! Thanks a lot! But does it figuratively refer to all monies? As in not just the dollar.
