"Hold Your Head" as written by Christopher Wallace, Rita Marley and Robert A Hall....
Woman hold her head and cry
Cause her son had been shot down in the street and died

Woman hold her head and cry
'Cause her son had been shot down in the street and died

When I die, fuck it I wanna go to (hell)
'Cause I'm a piece of shit, it ain't hard to fuckin' tell
It don't make sense, goin' to heaven wit' the goodie-goodies
Dressed in white, I like black Tims and black hoodies
God will probably have me on some real strict shit
No sleepin' all day, no gettin my dick licked
Hangin' with the goodie-goodies loungin' in paradise
Fuck that shit, I wanna tote guns and shoot dice
All my life I been considered as the worst
Lyin' to my mother, even stealin' out her purse
Crime after crime, from drugs to extortion
I know my mother wished she got a fuckin' abortion

Woman hold her head and cry
Cause her son had been shot down in the street and died

I swear to God I just want to (slit) my wrists and end this bullshit
Throw the Magnum to my head, threaten to pull shit
And squeeze, until the bed's, completely red
I'm glad I'm (dead), a worthless fuckin' buddah head
The stress is buildin' up, I can't,
I can't believe (suicide's) on my fuckin' mind
I want to leave, I swear to God I feel like death is fuckin' callin' me
Naw you wouldn't understand
You see its kinda like the crack did to Pookie, in New Jack
Except when I cross over, there ain't no comin' back
Should I die on the train track, like Remo in Beatstreet
People at the funeral frontin' like they miss me
My baby momma kissed me but she glad I'm gone
She knew me and her sister had somethin' goin' on
I wonder if I died, would tears come to her eyes?
Forgive me for my disrespect, forgive me for my lies

Woman hold her head and cry
Cause her son had been shot down in the street and died

I reach my peak, I can't speak,
Call my nigga Chic, tell him that my will is weak
I'm sick of niggaz lyin', I'm sick of bitches hawkin'
Matter of fact, I'm sick of talkin' [echoes]

    Song MeaningThis song by Notorious B.I.G is a really good song. The meaning of this song is about him saying sorry for all the bad stuff he has done. That he's worthless for all the wrong things he has done and doesnt care if he goes to hell. The first two lines after the intro.

    He also says that he wants to kill himself and will his baby momma cry for him.

    At the end of the song he says that his at the highest point in his life and he doesnt want anything to do with anyone.

    My OpinionA nice and powerfull rap, it is not hard to see what B.I.G is taking about. The thing is though, how little a role bob Marley played in this song. I mean you find this song and you see it say B.I.G with Bob Marley and you aspect a duet of sorts, not just an old recording of bob Marley playing, in repeat, in the background of the song. Don't get me wrong,it is a pretty good line but still it makes the inclusion of him in the song just a gimmick to increase sales
