Now the year's new, I lay my game flat
I want my spot back, take two
A lot of rappers — including Nas, and Raekwon from the Wu-Tang Clan — came hard for the King of New York rap crown
Since Biggie is filling the #1 spot, he gives his rivals a double-double:
Take two (2) bullets
Take spot #2 (silver medalist ain’t bad!)
A third explanation, making it a triple-double, would be that since the year is new, he is requesting a new “take” on his dominance of the rap game like a director on a movie set — which would make this yet another triple entendre!
