    Elsewhere legit-writer asked about giving Second Chances, putting in my mind "One More Chance" by Biggie Smalls. I sought to see if it's relevant, but found it to be incredibly pisspoor. So I ask--what's the hype? Below is the video, the song, the lyrics (with bolding on namebrands and a horrific underline) and an overall summation.



    First things first, I Poppa, freaks all the honies
    dummies, playboy bunnies, those wantin' money
    those the ones I like cause they don't get nathin'
    but penetration, unless it smells like sanitation
    'Garbahge', I turn like doorknobs
    heart throb, never, black and ugly as ever
    however, I stay Gucci down to the socks
    rings and watch filled with rocks
    and my jam knock in the Mitsubishi
    girls pee pee when they see me
    navajos creep me in they tee pee
    as I lay down laws like Allan Coppett
    Stop it - if ya think theyre gonna make a profit
    don't see my ones, don't see my guns - get it
    now tell ya friends Poppa hit it then split it
    in two as I flow with the Junior M.A.F.I.A.
    I don't know what the hell's stoppin ya
    I'm clockin ya, Versace shade watchin ya
    once ya grin, I'm in, game begin
    first I talk about how I dresses this
    In diamond necklasses - stretch Lexuses
    The sex is just immaculate from the back I get
    deeper and deeper, help ya reach the
    climax that your man can't make
    call him, tell him you'll be home real late
    now sing the break

    Chorus:

    Faith: Baby....all I need is one more chance, I can help you find yourself
    You don't need nobody else
    B.I.G.: I got the good luv girl ya didn't know (x2)

    Verse Two:

    Sick of that song on how it's so long
    thought he worked his until I handled my biz
    there I is; Major Payne like Damon Wayans
    Low Down Dirty Demon like his brother Keenan
    schemin, don't leave ya girl round me
    true player for real, ask Puff Daddy (yeah)
    you ringin bells with bags from Chanel
    Baby Benz, traded in your Hyundai Excel
    Fully equipped, CD changer with the cell
    She beeped me, meet me at twelve
    Where you at? flippin jobs, payin' car notes?
    While I'm swimmin in ya women like the breast stroke
    Right stroke, left stroke was the best stroke
    Death stroke - tongue all down her throat
    Nuthin left to do but send her home to you
    I'm through - can ya sing the song for me, boo?

    Chorus

    Verse Three:

    So, what's it gonna be? Him or me?
    we can cruise the world with pearls, gator boots for girls
    the envy of all women, crush linen
    Cartier wrist-wear with diamonds in em
    the finest women I love with a passion
    ya man's a wimp, I give that *** a good thrashin
    high fashion - flyin into all states
    sexin me while ya man masturbates
    Isn't this great? Your flight leaves at eight
    Her flight lands at nine, my game just for rhyme
    lyrically I'm supposed to represent
    I'm not only the client, I'm the player president​

    Overall: A bunch of brand dropping. This is largely a nonsensical self-aggrandizing "high (European) fashion" praising arrangement of words. It's pretty shameful to imagine that East and West once "fought" over this drivel. Seriously, what's the merit in this? This is fairly shameful.

    lol - do you know how old this song is? And exactly what 'hype' are you talking about?

    This is the first time in about 10 years i've even heard someone mention this song.

    In regards to the lyrics, it's self explanitory!

    We need to stop trying to dig up brothers who have gone back to the essence only to lynch them again. If someone doesn't like their lyrics, then write you own and put it out their to teach. Biggie wasn't a book scholar, so he didn't talk about books. (though he did write his own version of the 10 commandments) He was a street scholar, who wrote and talked about the streets. Period!

    If there was "hype", I thought it passed years ago?! No?

    Indeed!

    I think someone's mocking our brother in this and in another thread along with pac. In the other thread he says he 'grew up' during this era of the east coast west coast beef, but i remember sometime ago him saying he was in his 50's or so. I was already a young man during that beef and was in my early 20's so how could that be? The beef took place around 94 when pac got shot up in a nyc studio and thought that puff and big had set him up. So somebody is playing games 'round here....

    Although I can feel AB's intent, I feel the thread is reaching.

    Biggie/Tupac debate continues to this day.

    Maybe it's just youtube comments talking, but I figured that there were still diehard fans out there.

    Besides, it's good to be diverse. You never know who is searching for questions. :)

    More, Biggie/Tupac defines a whole generation. Even if it's the past--that generation still lives.

    By the way, Malcolm and King are older than Pac and Biggie. We really should get out of the mindset that history is unimportant.

    A White man says "That happened yesterday" to dismiss something.

    But when Black people say it; I answer "That's the point."
