(You ready ************?)

One in the chamber, the safety is off release
Biggie Smalls the savage, doin your brain cells much damage
mic ripper girl stripper the Henny sipper
Quick to grab the right ***** and make her drive
Respect is collected, so check it
Sleep on my stomach so I don't **** up my sheets, huh
I'm ready to die and nobody can save me
My life is played out like a jheri curl, I'm ready to die
As I sit back and look when I used to be a crook
A big BAD ************ on the wrong road
I want it all from the Rolexes
My mother didn't give me what I want, what the ****?
**** is real, and hungry's how I feel
Kickin *****z down the steps just for rep
The infrared's at your head real steady

(Nah we ain't gon' kill your *** yet)

Everybody hit the deck, Biggie bout to get some wreck
You better act like CeCe, and keep on walkin
You swung a left you swung a right you feel to the concrete
I'm rippin MC's from Tallahassee, to Compton
*****z say I'm strange deranged because I put the 12 gauge to your brain
Mix the blood like batter then my pocket gets fatter
down your backbone to where your **********in cheek drip
Biggie Smalls passin any test, I'm ready to die!
I'm ready
*****z definitely know what time it is
for ninety-three!

(If I should die before I wake)
(Cause I'm ready to die)
(All y'all ************s come with me if you want to)
(Biggie Smalls the biggest man)
(Third Eye, and the rest of the Bad Boy fam)
