  • Uh-huh
    I ain't even good with writin'
    I don't even write shit
    But I just felt, I had to write this letter to B.I.G. (yeah-yeah)
    Niggas is acting like
    Letter to B.I.G.
    Uh, yo

    Dear, Christopher Frank White Wallace
    Yeah, it's your boy Kiss, I just want to holla (uh-huh)
    In your memory, I keep the Coogi in my closet (yeah)
    Kangol on the rack, a fresh pair of Wallies
    You know I'm still the liquor and the weed child
    And still got Branson on speed dial
    And everybody's the king now
    You ain't gotta be nice, gettin' shot is the thing now
    M.A.F.I.A. was doing they best, they separated
    Now Roc and Gutta doing a stretch, uh, yeah
    Kim is still in it to win it
    Seen Money L awhile ago, but I ain't heard from Cease in a minute (uh-uh)
    People in power is queer
    I could go on for a year 'bout how it would be if you were still here (uh)
    The game got cheaper, rappers is more commercially successful now
    But the heart's a lot weaker
    You know me, still got the flow that'll pop speakers (uh)
    First option on offense, the top feature
    It's easy B.I.G., all you needs a Pro Tools set
    And I ain't touch the paper that I was supposed to yet
    Everybody that's somebody show respect (yup)
    Only a matter of time before they notice that
    I'm an impeccable lyricist
    And with the right mechanics, I could take over, be clear of this
    They well aware of Kiss, the light of the city
    And I ain't a the label no more but I'm tighter with Diddy
    I got my own plan, handle mine like a grown man
    Long as I know I'm nice, fuck it, I'm my own fan
    Remixed the joints you had
    But, they could never ever duplicate your swag (never)
    Meanwhile I'ma keep it so on my lil' plans
    And you might bump into a few of my lil' mans
    Up there steppin' with God
    Down here, Mister Cee in BK still reppin' you hard
    T'yanna so pretty, CJ turned into a lil' Biggie
    Just a little lighter but so witty
    On your born day, we get the highest
    Groovy still the best with the garments, he keep me the flyest
    Tonight, Patron is dead
    Only right that I take a bottle of Bacardi Limon to the head
    And before I end it, I gotta say thanks
    'Cause not only was your time well spent, it was splendid (thanks)
    Miss you, my nigga (and we tried to hard to understand)
    One love

    So we tried to hard to understand, why you had to go away
    (That was my letter to B.I.G., na mean?)
    You were everything, you were everything
    (I felt it was only right, I really smoked with them niggas)

    So we'll just keep our heads to the sky (drink with him)
    (Sat with him, talked with him)
    'Cause we know we're gonna see you in the next lifetime (real shit)
    But it's never easy saying good-bye
    (See you when I get there, baby)
    Saying good-bye (love you)

    So we tried to hard to understand, why you had to go away
    You were everything (why you had to go away?)
    So we tried to hard to understand, why you had to go away
    You were everything Writer/s: Duane Ramos, Faith Evans, Gwen Guthrie, Jason Phillips, Khari Cain, Patrick Grant
