We can cruise the world with pearls, gator boots for girls
The envy of all women, crushed linen
He’s not letting up in his quest to convince women of his worth through wealth.
In a sense, there is something poignant in the desperation inherent in having to use riches as bait for ‘love’. Biggie is almost Gatsby-esque in this regard, offering money and the freedom it brings (cruise the world) as a lure for… a relationship.
It’s also a slightly mixed juxtaposition of wealth images, that borders on incoherent. Word cruises and alligator skin bots? Ok then… He’s having a ‘throwing colourful shirts at daisy’ moment here. Confident and flashy yes, but also needy.
Crush Linen, was a stripper at the Black Orchid Cabaret. She died of aids. There was another stripper that caught aids from the same drug dealer they were sharing. She was rumored to be linked with biggie and 2pac. She was done with stripping when she caught Aids and then died from it. She was said to be very beautiful. She was also linked alot of Detroit Drug Dealers and she also pulled alot of ballers. She was a nurse by day and stripped at night to send her kids to college. .
