Straight up honey really I'm asking
Most of these niggas think they be macking, but they be acting
He is asking her out nicely, instead of pretending to flirt with and like her. Diddy says this about Biggie’s courtship techniques:
Around women he was a charmer. He didn’t really make the first move, and a lot of times it just happened from, “Pleased to meet you.” He would get introduced to people and when he said “pleased to meet you” to a girl it rang a different way. I guess they was caught off guard by how much of a gentleman he was, how smooth he was and also how he didn’t try to continue on the conversation. That made her feel comfortable. They’d lay in the cut, something else would happen, and then they’d start laughing. They’d see the humor and it was a wrap."
