Be yourself. The original is always worth more than the copy.
Oh don’t be ridiculous Andrea, everybody wants this. Everybody wants to be us.

Creativity is the art of concealing your source.
Don’t hate what you can’t imitate.
The one and only, you can’t clone me, got a lot of haters and a lot of homies… some friends and some phony.
Always be a first-rate version of yourself instead of a second-rate version of somebody else.
Why try to be someone you’re not? Life is hard enough without adding impersonation to the skills required.
Everybody that thinks that I disrespected or.. I LOVE my East coast fans, I’m from there. I’m eatin New York pizza, I drive New York jeeps, wanna hear New York…. but I’m sayin let’s keep it real for a second. If you half the lover of music that you are, STUDY. Go back and study. Study how Party and Bullshit was me BEFORE I met Biggie. You don’t hear my style in his rap. Study how AFTER I met Biggie, Ready 2 Die come out, his whole style change. STUDY. Study why I would be mad! Study why I would be mad when half of New York, half of the major New York rappers or they managers or they agents or they SOMEbody was there when I got shot and nobody could give me no information. Just study that! Study how when Wu-Tang got their chain snatched at 6-6-deuce, I not only found WHO did it, but gave them the message that if they wanna see the niggas that did it they could see em! Man to Man! Just you and them, no guns no nothin. If you feel like that. That’s all I asked for.
