Big Brother Lyrics

Stadium status

My big brother was B.I.G'S brother
Used to be Dame and B.I.G'S brother
Who was hip hop brother, who was no I.D friend
No I.D my mentor, now let the story begin

It's the hard knock life tour, sell out
Picture us in the...

    He's talking about how his relationship with Jay-Z is more like them being brothers. Of course with them like brothers there are the ups and downs, like sibling rivalry, competing for love(of the listeners), seeing who is better, the little brother wanting to either surpass Jay-Z, or being forced into his shadow ("have you ever walked in the footprints of a giant"). Then, Jay-Z has also shaped his career and in many ways forced made Kanye think outside the box thus making his better.

    I know what it is like to walk in big brothers footsteps. West is talking about jay helping him. The evolution of rap is great. My big brother is one of my hero's!

    This song is basically about his admiration for Jay-z and he's just letting him know in this song.

    If you admire someone, let them know now, while they still can.
