Yeah, this album is dedicated
To all the teachers that told me I'd never amount to nothing
According to Miss Wallace, B.I.G.’s mother, in the biography Unbelievable: The Life, Death, and Afterlife of the Notorious B.I.G., this exchange happened between B.I.G. and his teacher:
BIG: Do you know how much a garbage collector makes, sir?
BIG: A teacher makes a starting salary of $22,500, a garbage collector starts at $29,000
Teacher: Do you have a point, Mr. Wallace?
BIG: Yes, sir. You said some of us inside here are gonna be garbage collectors. But we’re gonna be making more money than you, so that’s cool.
The encounter was also acted out in the movie interpretation of Biggie’s life, Notorious.
