I missed your wake not cause I'm fake

from Nas – We Will Survive Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

He missed Biggie’s wake, as this whole verse is about Biggie and the next about Pac, which is a ceremony held right before a funeral, where there is a viewing of the deceased. He missed Biggie’s wake, but not because Nas is fake, but because he didn’t want to see Big, who was so great, in his present state, in a pine box.
