Don't you know Bad Boys move in silence and violence?

from The Notorious B.I.G. – Ten Crack Commandments Lyrics on Rap Genius


Bad Boy Records is Puff Daddy’s record label, which he signed BIG to

Criminals (i.e. “bad boys”) try to avoid getting caught and scorn snitching to the police. Biggie is likening his label’s reputation to “real bad boys”.

This is possibly alluding to the line “real bad boys move in silence” from “Stop the Violence” by Boogie Down Productions.
