Shit, my Momma got cancer in her breast
Don't ask me why I'm motherfucking stressed, things done changed

from The Notorious B.I.G. – Things Done Changed Lyrics on Rap Genius


Big’s mother, Violetta Wallace, has survived two bouts of breast cancer

This brings the song full circle. Biggie has lamented the negative changes time has wrought in his neighbourhood (and similar neighbourhoods in NYC and across the US), and now he shows just how personal some of those changes are.

Appropriately enough, this song segues into a dialogue between two hoods not unlike those described prior.
