Yes, Makavelli is his nickname BUT the OP is correct because Tupac read about him when he used to live with and visit his aunt in North California and thoroughly examined his work while locked up in Clinton Correctional.
Actually, he converted while still with the Outlawz. The first verse of “I Ain’t Mad At Cha” is dedicated to Napoleon.
It’s both, he explains the Acronym on his first two albums along with several interviews and then names the group with he, Big Syke, Mopreme, Machadosis(Mac-10), and Rated-R under the same moniker.
Havoc, not Prodigy
they dont ride big rims out west and judging from the next line, he does mean foes, since he says he’ll take em out aiming down the sights of a gun he has to balance on his shoulder or straight up fist fight toe to toe.
If she’s giving blow jobs, you assume she’s kneeling down and he’s standing up thus he’s gonna tower over her during that time
He’s saying that the girls willing to stand up to conflict more than their man. Grill was slang that got replaced by mean muggin when you you had a stare down, grill highlights the emphasis of clenching and exposing the teeth in anger
so random and Obama wasn’t even that prominent in opposition to rap music/trends especially in the late 90’s
He’s saying, if he wasn’t popular, would there even be an issue with people flocking to him and causing him all this trouble?
Could be referring to the Arion girl he mentions later in this album that Dame Dash was going to fight over for her ex-boyfriend on Roc-A-Fella’s team
