The crown is vacant
I'm takin' the proper steps
I'm takin' them poppa steps
They prayin' for my downfall

from Clipse (Ft. Ab-Liva) – Ride Around Shining Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

By saying “the crown is vacant,” Liva is referencing Notorious B.I.G.’s absence from the rap game (thus the “I’m takin' them poppa steps,” as in Big Poppa).

“My Downfall” is also a song by The Notorious B.I.G.
