A quote from Cain and Abel. After Cain had murdered his brother Abel, God asked him where his brother was. This was Cain's infamous reply.

And, concequently, a thematic line in the movie New Jack City. An intrical part of the plot of this movie is two best friends starting out in the 80's as small time drug-dealing and gangsta entrepreneurs and gradually becoming rich and successful with the introduction of crack to the streets and their embracing the business it provided them.
This line was exchanged between them toward the beginning when they were still level headed and close; the response was 'yes I am' accompanied by smiles and hugs.
Towards the end of the flick, when money was starting to drive Nino a little crazy and power-happy, the line was repeated again. This time it resulted in Nino's tearful response of 'yes I am' right before shooting his crack-addicted bro in the head.
