Dear B.I.G.,
     Why are so many politicians involved in religious cults, and yet we don't see any evidence of ethical behavior from them?    Thanks,  Jesus G.      

Dear J.G., 

Fuck that, I preach it, my nine reaches
the prestigious, cats that speak this, Willie shit.
Flooded pieces, my hand releases, snatches
Smack ya cabbage, half-ass rappers, shouldn't have it
So I grab it, never run, the outcome
is usually, a beatdown brutally, fuck who you be
or where you're from, West or East coast, squeeze toast
Leave most in the blood they layin in, what, what?

Dear B.I.G.,

     Wow, the police were really out like an army last weekend.  What gives?  -J.D.

Dear J.D.

Yo, check it
Call Lil' Cease
Tell that muh'fucker to bring me some muh'fuckin weed for this hospital
man fuck that
Tell that reporter to go pick up ten thousand from Dez
and go take about like twenty G's from Gino

Dear B.I.G., 

     Hi daddy, how you doin'.  I was wonderin', when climbing thin cracks do you recommend two nine millimeter ropes?  Also, do you prefer jamming thumb down or thumb up for most cracks?    - Tyiest

Dear Tyiest, 

I been in this game for years, it made me a animal
It's rules to this shit, I wrote me a manual
A step by step booklet for you to get
your game on track, not your wig pushed back
Rule nombre uno: never let no one know
how much, dough you hold, cause you know
The cheddar breed jealousy 'specially
if that man fucked up, get your ass stuck up
Number two: never let em know your next move
Don't you know Bad Boys move in silence or violence
Take it from your highness (uh-huh)
I done squeezed mad clips at these cats for they bricks and chips
Crack king, Frank Blizzard,  Uhh
(Chuck D) "One two three four five six seven eight nine"
it's the ten crack commandments
Ask the Notorious B.I.G.!
