To all the people that lived above the buildings that I was hustling in front of
That called the police on me

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


He’s dedicating this song to all the people who tried to make his life harder. He wasn’t selling drugs to get himself bitches, cars or cribs, he was earning his daily bread.

However, these two opening lines are only dedications in a mocking sense. Biggie is saying that he made it, while teachers and the local people in the neighborhood that snitched on him are in no way better than him. His way of life helped him become a successful rapper and a much richer man than any of the people that told him he couldn’t accomplish what he wanted.
