Follow these rules you'll have mad bread to break up
This song is about how Biggie grew up on the streets slinging crack and the rules to follow to keep ur ass outta jail. He also says that if you follow these rules you’ll have alot of money (‘mad bread to break up — bread in this context is cash).
What he ment by this, was that you need to follow these rules to stay out of jail “If not, 24 years on the wake up” which means 24 years in jail for a large amount of possession and selling.
