I had the master plan, I'm in the caravan on my way to Maryland
This can go one of two ways. The most simple one is that Biggie and Two Tecs (line below) are in a Dodge Caravan, which was a popular minivan at the time “Ready To Die” came out. They’re going to MD, and they have a brilliant plan to get drugs to sell.
The other way this can be seen is that Biggie has a caravan (as in a group of cars) driving from NY to MD. In this scenario, there’s quite a few cars involved to get to Maryland. There’s a lead car which is a “clean” car. It has no drugs, or anything of the sort. It is also the lookout car. Should anything happen, such as a police hiding with a radar to check speed, the lead car will radio in the others in the pack of cars and tell them to act accordingly. If for some reason there is suspicion within the caravan for the police to decided to pull someone over, the lead car will be the distraction. The driver will try to attract police attention in order to avoid the police officer pulling over one of the cars with work in it.
Here’s what a Dodge Caravan of the time looked like. Either explanation can be right. The car is a total soccer mom car. Wouldn’t be too suspicious to transport drugs in this type of car, it would just be inconvenient with the windows and no trunk.
