So I'm a lace the jewels up with nice baguettes

from Big L – Flamboyant Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Too many ways to interpret this…

  1. Lace up: analogy for enhancing weed by adding something to it, throwing on jewelry, or getting down with a girl.

  2. Jewel: meaning either jewelry, a fly girl, or weed.

  3. Bridgette: meaning a real fly girl, or easily pulling girls, but he also plays on on the metaphor of girls being jewelry (brigettes being the finest).

So, either he threw some ice on his chains,
Spiced the weed up with some heavy shit,
Or changed up his already fly girls to chicks that was straight bad.

And this is why, if rap was a game, he’d be MVP.

Big L rest in peace.
