    Lyrics

    [simultaneously: "It was all a dream" - B.I.G.]

    [Faith Evans + (Jay-Z)]
    Last night I had a dream
    Thoughts was racin through my head (it was all a dream)
    Felt so real to me
    This is what was said..

    [Jay-Z]
    "Had a dream", I said, "bout who?" he said
    "Bout B.I.G." I said, "that's big", he said
    "Dig", what he said, "proceed", he said
    "Indeed",i said, so - breathe I did
    "Don't repeat what I say", I said, he said nothin
    He agreed with his head, he just nodded like this
    What I believe to be a yes I re-peated what was said
    "It came to me like a .. well last evening," I said
    "You feel playboy," was the greeting he said
    First thing I wanted to know, what's the reason he was dead?
    "More money, more problems, better believe it," he said
    "Careful what you wish for you might receive it," he said
    "I see", I said, "jealousy", I said
    "Got the whole industry mad at me", I said
    Then B.I. said, "Hov' remind yourself
    nobody built like you, you designed yourself"
    "I agree", I said, "my one of a kind self
    Get stoned every day like Jesus did"
    What he said, I said, has been said before
    "Just keep doin your thing," he said, say no more

    [Faith Evans]
    Was it all a dream - tell me
    Was it all a dream, was it a dream
    Was it all a dre-eeee-eeeee-eeam
    I gotta know ("It was all a dream")
    Was it all a dream - was it a dream
    Was it all a dream, a dream
    Was it all a dre-eeee-eeeee-eeam

    [Notorious B.I.G.]
    It was all a dream, I used to read Word Up magazine
    Salt'n'Pepa and Heavy D up in the limousine
    Hangin pictures on my wall
    Every Saturday, "Rap Attack," Mr. Magic, Marley Marl
    I let my tape rock 'til my tape popped
    Smokin weed and bamboo, sippin on private stock
    Way back, when I had the red and black lumberjack
    with the hat to match
    Remember Rappin' Duke? "Duh-ha, duh-ha"
    You never thought that hip-hop would take it this far
    Now I'm in the limelight cause I rhyme tight
    Time to get paid, blow up like the ("World Trade")
    Born sinner, the opposite of a winner
    Remember when I used to eat sardines for dinner
    Peace to Ron G, Brucey B, Kid Capri
    Funkmaster Flex, Lovebug Starsky
    I'm blowin up like you thought I would
    Call the crib, same number same hood, it's all good
    Uhh, and if you don't know, now you know, nigga

    [Faith Evans]
    Was it all a dream - tell me
    Was it all a dream, was it a dream
    Was it all a dre-eeee-eeeee-eeam
    I gotta know ("It was all a dream")
    Was it all a dream - was it a dream
    Was it all a dream, a dream
    Was it all a dre-eeee-eeeee-eeam

    ("It was all.. a dream")
    ("It was all..")
    ("It was all.. a dream")
    ("It was all a dream")
    ("It was all.. a dream")
    ("It was all..")
    ("It was all.. a dream")

    [the beat drops out and Jay-Z raps the next part acapella]

    [Jay-Z]
    "I see" I said, "jealousy," I said
    "Got the whole industry mad at me," I said
    Then B.I. said, "Hov' remind yourself
    nobody built like you, you designed yourself"
    "I agree" I said, "my one of a kind self
    Get stoned every day like Jesus did"
    What he said, I said, has been said before
    "Just keep doin your thing," he said, say no more
