I do this for the group home kids in boarding houses
A group home can refer to a number of things:
- It is a private residence for people who are deemed incapable of living by themselves without proper supervision (i.e disabled, addicts, emotional disorders, etc.).
- A group home can also be an interim home for children placed under the foster care system until a foster family is found for them. This is probably a more accurate interpretation because Nas explicitly states “group home kids”
Nas does this for the “group home” folks out there, the ones who are struggling in life and the ones who have no control over the situation that they are in. To inspire this kids since he is living rags to riches story and knows what its like.
FUN FACT!: Group Home is ALSO a hip-hop duo that came up through the Gang Starr Foundation. The members are Lil' Dap and Melachi the Nutcracker, and they are mentioned in Nas' song, “Where Are They Now?” on Hip Hop is Dead. Subliminal shout-out maybe?????
