  • Now, who's hot, who not?
    Tell me who rock? Who sell out in the stores?
    You tell me who flopped? Who copped the blue drop?
    Who's jewels got rocks? Who's mostly Dolce down to the tube sock?
    The same old pimp, Mase, you know, ain't nothing change but my limp
    Can't stop till I see my name on a blimp
    Guarantee a million sales pulling all the love
    You don't believe in Harlem World, nigga, double up
    We don't play around, it's a bet, lay it down
    Nigga didn't know me ninety-one, bet they know me now
    I'm the young harlem nigga with the goldie sound
    Can't no Ph.D. niggas hold me down, Cooter
    Schooled me to the game, now I know my duty
    Stay humble, stay low, blow like Hootie
    True pimp niggas spend no dough on the booty
    (I don't know what) And then ya yell, there go Mase, there go your cutie

    I don't know what they want from me
    It's like the more money we come across
    The more problems we see

    Yeah yeah, haha, from the D-to-the-A-to-the-D-D-Y
    Know you'd rather see me die than to see me fly
    I call all the shots
    Rip all the spots, rock all the rocks
    Cop all the drops, I know you thinkin' now's
    When all the ballin 'stops
    Nigga never home got a chrome one and a yacht
    Ten years from now we'll still be on top
    Yo, I thought I told you that we won't stop
    Now whatcha gonna do when it's cool
    Bag a money much longer than yours
    And a team much stronger than yours,
    Violate me this'll be your day, we don't play
    Mess around be D.O.A., be on your way
    'Cause it ain't enough time here, ain't enough lime here
    For you to shine here, deal with many women but treat dimes fair, and I'm
    Bigger than the city lights down in Times Square
    Yeah, yeah yeah

    I don't know what they want from me
    It's like the more money we come across
    The more problems we see

    I don't know what they want from me
    It's like the more money we come across
    The more problems we see

    Uh, uh, B.I.G., P-O, P-P-A no info, for the, DEA
    Federal agents mad 'cause I'm flagrant
    Tap my cell, and the phone in the basement
    My team supreme, stay clean
    Triple beam lyrical dream, I be that
    Cat you see at all events bent
    Gats in holsters girls on shoulders
    Playboy, I told ya, bein' mice to me
    Bruise too much, I lose, too much
    Step on stage the girls boo too much
    I guess it's 'cause you run with lame dudes too much
    Me lose my touch, never that
    If I did, ain't no problem to get the gat
    Where the true players at?
    Throw your rollies in the sky
    Wave em side to side and keep their hands high
    While I give your girl the eye, player please
    Lyrically, niggas see, B.I.G. be flossin' jig on the cover of Fortune
    Five double oh, here's my phone number your name, I got to know, I got to go
    Got the flow down phizat, platinum plus
    Like thizat, dangerous on trizack, leave your ass fizzat

    I don't know what
    They want from me it's like the more money we come across
    The more problems we see

    I don't know what
    They want from me it's like the more money we come across
    The more problems we see

    I don't know what
    They want from me it's like the more money we come across
    The more problems we see

    What's goin' on? (somebody tell me) what's goin' on?

    I don't know what
    They want from me it's like the more money we come across
    The more problems we see

    I don't know what
    They want from me it's like the more money we come across
    The more problems we see

    I don't know what
    They want from me it's like the more money we come across
    The more problems we see

  • Steven from Sa , Txtha fly kid notorious big
  • Austin from Smallsville,new England, --This song was one of the few that helped get rap into the pop mainstream. THis song was released around Rap's 'Shiny Period' were the videos put more emphasis on dancing and rappers started sporting jewlery and shiny clothes and setting.
  • Austin from Smallsville,new England, --The music video begins with P. Diddy winning a golf tournament. It then showes Mase and Diddy rapping and floating with various people dancing. The video is set in a futeristic setting with the people wearing shiny clothes.
  • Andrew from Bartlett, TnI love this song because it's got a message. old rap has meaning and new rap doesn't, its all about sex and drugs.
  • Ron from Mount Holly, NjB.I.G. died in 1997
