Rule Nombre Uno: never let no one know
How much dough you hold cause you know
The cheddar breed jealousy 'specially
If that man fucked up, get yo' ass stuck up

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

Meaning

If people know how much money you have on you, they’ll get jealous and kill you…especially if we’re talking about crackheads.

Unfortunately for Big, “nombre” means “name” not “number” in espanol. Even street geniuses make mistakes, but I guess that’s why pencils have erasers.
