Recognize my face, so there won't be no mistake
So you know where to tell jake, lame nigga

from The Notorious B.I.G. – Who Shot Ya? Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Biggie wants to see his face so you can tell the cops about it, he’s so above the law

There’s also the implication that you are pathetic enough to break the code of silence and run straight to the police, rather than settling business yourself, which leads to the next line where you end up on the front page because you were murdered. It’s safe to say that the snitching got you in the casket.
