He figured Rock set 'em up, no question
Wet em up no less than 50 shots in his direction"

from The Notorious B.I.G. – Somebody Gotta Die Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Jason had no doubts that Rock set him up — this is why he shot him at the Beacon.

Biggie’s backstory for the present conflict is interesting since it creates a sympathetic persona for Jason. Undoubtedly if Biggie was in a similar situation (he was certain his former partner shot and robbed him, and hurt his family) he would also have violently retaliated. The morality of Biggie’s retaliation is thus ambiguous and ambivalent (much like that of Jason’s prior)
