Numbers on your head

from Mobb Deep (Ft. Nas & Raekwon) – Eye for an Eye Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

…Is this an infamous Quadruple Entendre??

  1. “Numbers on your head,” meaning someone has put a bounty on your head; you’re a wanted man (or woman).
  2. This might also mean the numbers 666, the mark of the beast, which appears later in the verse.
  3. He’s thinking about cash. He does not see faces, he only sees someones wealth… It is a very eerie thought to think a person can only care about the money one has in his pocket.
  4. A 4th interpretation is that he is talking about how many people someone has killed.
