I'm trying to make it, we already made it my friends think
We already on top, I got a bigger plan
No more controlled substances or hand to hand
White collar visions, game changing mission
Big wrists, big wins, equal bigger living
Perfect position, watch me transition
From caterpillar to butterfly in the sky
Big Rich Town by 50 Cent (Ft. Joe)

50’s homies thinking they already made it with a small win and shit when 50 already got bigger plans ahead.

‘'Controlled substances’‘ refers to drugs and ’‘hand to hand’‘ refers to the act of selling it. 50 can’t envision his whole life revolving around petty drug dealing and wishes to move on to bigger things. ’‘White collar’‘ workers are those who work in offices and the term is associated with sophistication and grace.

Here caterpillars represents the people at the bottom in the hood trying to get by doing dirty work and the butterfly is the one who has spread his wings and now lives the lavish life at top (in the sky) and 50 has made this transition seem effortless.

All I got is my word, balls and my instinct Big Rich Town by 50 Cent (Ft. Joe)

This is a reference to a popular quote from the movie Scarface:

All I have in this word is my balls and my word and I don’t break them for nobody.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qak-fmYlBRc

50 goes one step above Scarface and also has his instincts — that’s that animal ambition.

My cocaine endeavours give me corporate ties
I'm supposed to lose, watch me win against the odds
Big Rich Town by 50 Cent (Ft. Joe)

Through dealing drugs efficiently 50 obtained just enough wealth to make his way out of the hood and its poverty to make something for himself. As a result of this a whole new plate of possibilities open up for him and he can now continue his hustling on a larger level. 50 happens to be quite savvy and has had a lot of big business ventures over the years.

Considering where 50 started this wasn’t the realistic outcome for him and most men with a similar background either end up dead or in jail. With the proper hustler’s ambition 50 managed to beat the odds and come out a victor.

I gotta hustle through the hustle and bust while I make a move
Manuever around the rats and wolves, I'm from the school
Of hard knocks, shots pop, bodies drop
Graveyard, pick a block cause niggas want your spots
Big Rich Town by 50 Cent (Ft. Joe)

‘'The school of hard knocks’‘ is a phrase meaning the life lessons you acquire through the negative experiences in your life. Growing up 50 had a tough upbringing and was taught the way of survival in the streets rather than going to college and getting a formal eduction. Basically 50 studied ’‘Street Smarts 101’‘.

In the hood there are various blocks and corners you can conduct your hustling in, and every gang has their own ‘turf’, an area which they own. It’s important you claim your corner before anyone else takes it because a lot of people will fight for the best spots. The ‘'rats’‘ represent the snitches trying to bring 50 down and the ’‘wolves’‘ represent anyone who’s out to get 50 for either his wealth or his life. When hustling in the hood you need to be aware of your surroundings because everyone is out for the biggest oppurtunity and won’t hesitate to kill in order to achieve it.

[Verse 1: 50 Cent]
Yo, yo, we can't stay alive forever
So if shit hit the fan then we might as well die together
I'm high as ever, more hoes and more cheddar
G-Unit move around with them pounds and berretas
Yeah faggot, if I want it I'm gon' have it
Regardless if it's handed to me or I gotta grab it
Don't make a ass outta yourself tryna stop me
I'm cocky, rap's "Rocky", nigga you sloppy
You know that I'm eight levels above you nigga
I'll plug you nigga, I never heard of you nigga, ugly nigga
I'm the wrong one to provoke
And rattin' on niggas is only gon' leave you smoked
So the only thing left now is toast for these cowards
I got no friends, fuck most of these cowards
They pop shit 'til we start approachin these cowards
While we lay around dollars, they lay around flowers
Victory 2004 (Album Version) by Diddy (Ft. 50 Cent, Busta Rhymes, Lloyd Banks & The Notorious B.I.G.)

These are the same lyrics as 50’s and Banks' Victory remix.

[Verse 2: Michael Jackson]
Can it be I stayed away too long?
Did I leave your mind when I was gone?
It's not my thing trying to get back
But this time let me tell you where I'm at
You don't have to worry cause I'm coming
Back to where I should have always stayed
And now I've heard the maybe to your story
And it's enough love for me to stay
Can it be I stayed away too long?
Did I leave your mind when I was gone?
It's not my thing trying to get back
But this time let me tell you where I'm at

[Hook: Michael Jackson]
