Excuse me, flows just grow through me
Like trees to branches, cliffs to avalanches

Organic rhymes..

Like branches grow on trees, and avalanches form on cliffs, flows originate from Biggie

The beat to this song samples “Overnight Sensation” by a band called Avalanche. It might seem a bit of a stretch to say that he was referencing it, but Biggie was known to watch producers while they were making a beat for him.
