Cause me I'm never faded, I made it where he made it
Hope it don't end the same but we get the same payment
Hope that I get my name scripted in the same cadence
Know I be in my ways but I feel like I'm the greatest
Here, Sky is comparing himself to his neighborhood (and Hip Hop Legend) The Notorious B.I.G. Sky often mentions how he grew up down the block from his childhood hero, so this is his way of paying tribute as well as describing his drive. He wants Biggie’s successes in the game and his name in history but none of Biggie’s downfalls (mainly being his untimely death).
