Song Lyrics

Staduim status


My big brother was Big`s brother

Used to be Dame and Bigs brother

Who was hip hop brother

Who was No I.D friend

No I.D My mentor

Now let the story begin

Its the hard knock life tour

Sell out, picture us in the mall

Coping iceberg and yell out Jigga

Yea that`s what we would yell out

Yell out

You know the name dude

I gotta spell out or tell bout

J a y an Ye so shy

Now he won`t even step to his idol to say hi

Standing there like a mime

Let the chance pass by

Back of my mind he could change your life

With all these beats I did at least let him hear it

At least you could brag to your friends back at the gig

But he got me out my mama crib

Then he help me get my mama a crib

Big brother was Bigs Brother

Used to be Dame and Bigs Brother

Who was hip hop brother

Who was No I.D friend

No I.D my mentor

Now let the story begin

Let the story begin

If you feel the way I feel why don`t you wave your hands

Fresh off the plane I`m off to Baseline

Nothing handed out

I`m about to take mine

Around the same time of that BluePrint 1

Any beats in my pocket was that Blueprint form

I`d play my little song in that old back room

He would bob his head and say, damn, oh, that`s you

But by the Black album I was blacking out

Party at S.O.Bs and we had packed the crowd

Big brother got his show up in Madison Square

And I`m like yea, yea we gonna be there

But not only did I not get a chance to spit it

Carleen told me I could buy two tickets

I guess big brother was thinking a little different

Kept little brother at bay, at a distance

Put everything I felt was more focused

Only made me more focused

Only wrote more potent

Only thing I wanna know is why I get looked over

I guess ill understand when I get more older

Big brother saw me at the bottom of the todum

Now I`m at the top and everybody on the scrodum

My big Brother was Bigs brother

Used to be Dame and Bigs brother

Who was hip hops brother

Who was No I.Ds friend

No I.D my mentor

Now let the story begin


Let the story begin

If you feel the way I feel why don`t you wave your hands

Have you ever walked in the shadow of a giant

Not only a client the presidito

Hola ovito

The game getting foul so here`s a free throw

I was always on the other side of the peep hole

Then I dropped Jesus walks now I`m on a steep hole

And we know

New jack city gotta keep my brother

But to be number 1 I`m a beat my brother

On that diamond remix I swore I spaz

Then my big brother came through and kicked my ass

Sibling rivery, only I could see

It was the pride in me that was driving me

At the Grammies I said I inspired me

But my big brother who I always tried to be

When I kick a flow it was like, pick and roll

Cause even if he gave me the rock its give and go

I guess beanies style was more of a slam dunk

And my sh*t was more like a finger roll

but I had them singles though

And them hoes at the show gonna minggle yo.

Ya know

I told Jay I did a song with cold play

Next thing I know he got a song with coldplay

Back in my mind I`m like damn, no way

Translate espanol

No way Jose

Then I went and told Jay brown

Should of known that was gonna come back around

Should of told you like a man should of told you first

But I told somebody else that`s what made sh*t worse

My big brother was Bigs brother

So here`s a few words from your kid brother

If you admire somebody you should go ahead and tell um

People never get the flowers while they could smell um

A ideal in my eyes, God of the game

Heart of the city,Rockafella chain

Never be the same, never be another

Number 1 young Hov also my big brother

My big Brother was Bigs brother

Used to be Dame and Bigs Brother

Who was hip hops brother

Who was No I.Ds friend

No I.D my mentor

And that`s where the story ends

Don`t kill this sh*t.....
