"He's going to be a bad boy"

from The Notorious B.I.G. – Respect Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The doctor could tell just from looking at Biggie after his birth that he would be a troublemaker. Was the doctor racist or what?

Biggie implies that he was destined for a life of crime. This segues nicely into the next verse…

This is also a reference to Bad Boy Records, Biggie’s record label
