Nigga turned around holdin' his daughter
Jason was with his daughter! In the ad-libs at the end you can hear Biggie say “I think I hit the baby.”
While hardly light-hearted before, this particular twist turns this revenge story grim. The fact that BIG had a young daughter of his own makes this especially poignant.
This is in line with Biggie’s style, where he doesn’t portray violence as glamorous, but a dark (albeit regular) part of hood life.
