I got a phone call from one of my nigs
Said my homeboy Reek, he just lost one of his kids
When Scarface was about to record his verse for this song he got a call from his friend who told him that one of their friends had lost his kids in a fire
At this point Scarface had a verse ready for this song. When he got that call, he scrapped the entire verse and re-wrote the verse entirely to reflect what was going through his mind after hearing the news.
