Jay-Z – If I Should Die (4th Verse, 1998)
If I Should die… I’d tell Big they’re still hearin’ his songs Run to Pac ask him where we went wrong Tell him life is miserable when ya dealin’ in the physical form Is everything that’s invisible gone? I need to know… Will I still feel pain or will it be ironic? Will I chill in the flames for all the ills of my brain? Can I reveal the game to all the hustlers Trapped in the race and if so can I leave this place? Can I puff cigars & drink Cristal? If this is heaven to me is this considered heavenly? Can I still touch lives answer they “whats & whys” Make sure everybody in my fam’ clutch five? If I should die, Don’t cry…
