"Got Your Money" is a single by American hip-hop artist Ol' Dirty Bastard, taken from his second full-length LP Nigga Please. The song's chorus is sung by American R&B singer Kelis who makes her first appearance on record. Both the single and the album were released on Elektra Records in 1999. The song was produced by The Neptunes. It was also the only single released from Nigga Please. The song is listed at number 255 on NME's 500 Greatest songs Of All Time.

In 2012, a parody of the song was made by ADHD called "Where You Hide Your Money" with 2012 Republican presidential nominee Mitt Romney as the subject of the song.[1][2] In 2013 and 2014, an altered version of the song appeared in a television commercial for Boost Mobile,[3] and in 2015, a trailer for the film Get Hard.

The song is sampled by The Chemical Brothers in their song "Galaxy Bounce".
