    Listen up gangstas and honies with your hair done
    Pull up a chair, hon', and put it in the air, son
    Dog—whatever they call you—God, just listen
    I spit a story backwards—it starts at the endin'
    The bullet goes back in the gun
    The bullet holes close in the chest of this nikka
    Now he back to square one, screamin', "shoot don't please"
    I put my fifth back on my hip, it's like a VCR rewindin' a hit
    He put his hands back on his bytch, my caravan doors open up
    I jumped back in the van and closed it shut
    Goin' reverse, slowly prepared
    My nikka Jungle utters out somethin' crazy like, "go he there"
    Sittin' in back of this chair, we hittin' the roach
    The smoke goes back in the blunt
    The blunt gets bigger in growth
    Jungle unrolls it, put his weed back in the jar
    The blunt turns back into a cigar
    We listen to Stevie, it sounded like heavy metal fans
    Spinnin' records backwards of AC/DC
    I give my nikkas dap, jump out the van, back first
    Back upstairs, took off the black shirt
    I'm in the crib with the phone to my ear
    Listen up so y'all can figure out the poem real clear
    The voice on the phone was like, "outside right we"
    So with my mouth wide, holdin' my heat
    Bullets I had plenty to squeeze, plenty for you
    'Cause Jungle said, "block your on enemy's the"
    Hung up the phone, then the phone rang
    I'm laid in the bed, thinkin' about this pretty young thing
    Who left, she came back, her clothes just fell to the rug
    She fell to my bed and gave me a hug
    I told her, "no hell," she talkin' about, "me kiss"
    Bobbed her head then spit a nut back in my dikk
    Started suckin' with no hands, a whole lot of spit
    Then got up and put her bra back on her t*ts
    Got fully dressed and told me, "stressed really I'm"
    Picked up her Gucci bag and left a nikka behind
    Walkin' through the door, she rang the bell twice
    I vomited vodka back in my glass with juice and ice
    The clock went back from three to two to one
    And that's about the time the story begun
    That's when I first heard the voicemail on the cell
    It said: "Son, we found that nikka we gotta kill."

    [Outro]
    *Beep*
    Ayo son, ayo son, you hear me, you hear me?
    Listen, man, this dude right on the block
    Right now, man, I found him, right now
    I see him right now, let's kill him!
    *Beep*
    "Yo, this Nas, leave it: peace."

    Was thinking about this last night when I was smoking and listening to rewind

    if the enemy was on nas’ block how the hell did wiz know that?

    And why was nas’ enemy on his block for two hours?

    And why did nas have to get in the van and drive to the enemy if the enemy was already on his block?

    :patrice::patrice::patrice:

    Also why would the chicks clothes fall to the rug if the story is going backwards?

    also just caught the part of where nas said dog whatever they call you god just listen

    god spelled backwards = dog

    Perfect example of getting credit for effort & creativity but the story sucking. It’s really not that great of a song

    Concept may have been stolen actually

    but I think nas did a great job in making a nice flowing song out the concept

    couldn’t have been easy

    I was so hyped to hear this in 2001, when I was in 10th grade. All the forums and articles were referencing Christopher Nolan's "Memento", which I had seen maybe the same year, and it was the "hottest" movie of the time. I was expecting this elaborate story, with double crosses, and plot twists, told backwards, an epic story, and I was casually let down, that it was just a very straightforward, simple tale, of a sex act, and seemingly senseless killing. Funny in retrospect, how we let these song titles and tracklists influence us.
