Little did anyone know when the late great Christopher Wallace aka the Notorious BIG released his much anticipated follow up album Life After Death in March of 1997 (just a few short weeks after the rapper's own death), that track number 12 was more than just an entertaining story.

For instance, Hart's very public split from ex-wife Torrei Hart and his not only confession of mistakes but the fuel that gave him for really getting focused on his career and the heights that has taken him. He might never grow another inch, but his career is 10 feet tall.

The young man's game is not the hip version it claims to be and the lyrics are suspect at best. Is this just an old man's rant about today's music? Is it? The thought was yes until...
