Stadium status Uh

My big brother was Big's brother Used to be Dame and Big's 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 Copin iceberg and yell out Jigga Yea that's what we would yell out, yell out
You know the name, do 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 and 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 Big's Brother Used to be Dame and Big's 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
And these beats in my pocket was that blueprint for him
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.B's 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
And kept little brother at bay, at a distance But everything I felt was more bogus 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 totem Now I'm at the top and everybody on the scrotum 
My big Brother was Big's brother Used to be Dame and Big's brother 

Who was hip hops brother Who was No I.D's friend No I.D my mentor, now let the story begin 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 Hovito 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 Diamonds remix I swore I'd spaz
Then my big brother came through and kicked my ass Sibling rivalry, only I could see
It was the pride in me that was driving me
At the Grammys 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 shit was more like a finger roll
but I had them singles though
And them hoes at the show gonna mingle yo
Y'all know
I told Jay I did a song with Cold Play
Next thing I know he got a song with Cold Play
Back in my mind I'm like damn, no way Translate español
No way Jose
Then I went and told J 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 and that's what made shit worse 
My big brother was Big's 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 still smell um
A idol 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.D's friend No I.D my mentor, and that's where the story ends

Don't kill this shit
