    The track has a really catchy melodic piano coating which enhances the words being spoken by Ortiz. The first few bars instantaneously grasp the listener on impact. A tribute track like this only validates how much Biggie meant to culture which is no question why Joel Ortiz is lyrical force to be reckoned with:


    "Umm I remember how I felt when your tape dropped
    like how da the hell I can’t find a song that ain’t hot!
    Strong voice, your delivery is unmatched
    Your metaphors made it sure that you run rap
    Coogie sweater with the congo hat
    When you was clubbing lumberjack with the hat to match
    When you was thugging to this thing
    I listen back to your tracks
    Like you was bugging,
    I feel like strangling that f****t ass ni**a who threw in the slug that murked the king!
    "
