Biggie's neighbors called the cops on him because he was selling drugs in and out of the building. They didn't like what he was doing. This is similar to what Lupe is talking about, the people in the (skateboarder's) building didn't like what he was doing. You can't see that the two are parallel?
You're thinking too literal. I used to hang on this street corner (I'm not saying, I know about the streets), there were at least 20 people hanging on this corner, daily. They sold drugs to passing cars and any crackhead who wanted to get high. It got to the point where the cops started to notice, and they started locking people up. The corner now has a reputation, if you are standing on that corner, you're selling drugs. The cops drive through now and then, and they tell the people standing there, "you can't stand here, get lost." In reality, they can't stand there anymore because business owners are calling the cops, and they are slapping no trespassing signs up everywhere.
But you can take the song how you want to take it, it's impossible for everyone to get the same message out of a song, it's like DNA. We are all different. I know people don't see the world how I see it. People don't listen to an artist for the same I listen to an artist.
