Minus six shots, but it's still this hot
Calling back to the previous line, Cole implies he actually is Biggie and Pac combined, but the difference is that he’s still alive today. Pac was shot five times at Quad Studios in 1994 — not six, as rappers often seem to think.
B.I.G. got shot four times on March 9, 1997, leading to his death. Although he was shot four times, only one bullet was fatal.
So the five shots of 2Pac combined with the one fatal shot of B.I.G. add up to six.
Interesting thing to note is that Cole doesn’t include the shots, although the exact number is unknown, that killed Pac on September 7, 1996.
