Slugs missed ya, I ain't mad at cha (we ain't mad at cha)
Although Puff Daddy, who was present at the time of recording, claims that this song was not about anyone in particular, this line is the first and most concrete piece of evidence that this track is directed at Biggie’s rival, rapper Tupac Shakur of Death Row Records. Biggie makes a clear reference to his song I Ain’t Mad at Cha. ‘Pac had previously used Big’s own writing against him, parodying him in the song Hit ‘Em Up; however, Tupac was not shy about who he was addressing.
Biggie would have gotten revenge for Tupac’s slander with this song, but sadly both men were murdered in drive-by shootings before its release.
The “we” in this line paints a picture of The Notorious B.I.G., Puff Daddy, and Bad Boy Entertainment united versus Tupac Shakur, Suge Knight, and Death Row Records.
