    The hood love you but behind your back they pray for the day
    A bullet hit your heart and ambulances take you away
    That ain't love it's hate, think of all the mothers at wakes
    Whose sons you killed, and you ain't got a cut on your face?


    :ahh:

    I never thought he really ‘fell’ off..I Am was a great album.

    Nastradamus was very lackluster tho :yeshrug:

    Flawless lyricism and one of the best examples of Nas' premier strength: evocative lyricism.

    definition: bringing strong images, memories, or feelings to mind.
    :wow:

    “Unmarked police cars roam the streets hard, the heat is God
    Somebody tell these shorties reach for the stars
    Instead they tell 'em how to reach through the bars, holding a mirror
    Lookin down a tear in jail, making weapons to kill ya”

    Fav Part

    Peace
