WILD 107: I wanna ask you how you felt when you first heard "Hit 'Em Up" how did that, did, I mean, it has to hurt some because you guys used to be cool and to hear all that.

B.I.G.: It hurt but I kinda' look at it like business. When you at the top, you gotta' go for the top person's neck, you know what I'm sayin'? You just gotta' get your spot, you know what I'm sayin'? That's what he wanted. I can't be mad at him for that, he just doin' what he got to do. I couldn't be the one to do it back though, that's not my style. I mean, me personally, I got a rhyme about things like that because that's all I know and I look at myself as the eyes of the world, you know, I gotta' tell my story. I tell what I see. If I was involved with other things, then maybe I would rhyme about other things but...That's all I know, you know what I'm sayin'?

At the same time, I know what people want to hear and that's not all I rhyme about. If there's one thing that I learned about "Ready To Die" was that it's a full, rounded album. I got songs from girls, I got songs from thugs, I got songs from the radio. I tried to put a little bit of everything into everything. I'm not a one-sided person. I can't speak for anybody else if that's what they want to rhyme about, that's what they want to rhyme about. I rhyme about everything. Remember that game, telephone, you used to play when you would say something in somebody's ear and you just keep saying it? By the time it gets back to you it's a completely different story. That's basically how it is but it started from here and got all the way changed by the time it got to the East coast. You know, I had nothing to do with that.

Nobody was there to tell him, yo, you need to slow down, you need to just chill. I went through the same situation this summer where I was just movin' too quick. I was going through problems with Faith and I was just, I had my daughers and I was getting a whole bunch of money and I was in a car accident and just moving too fast. Then I just had to sit down...

It just happened to be a coincidence that he was in the studio. He just, he couldn't really say who really had something to do with it at the time. So he just kinda' leaned the blame on me.

All the shouldn't be the one to sit back and listen to rumors. Just take the chance to know the person before you judge the person, that goes with anybody, not just me.
