A two day stay, you may say I need the time alone
To relax my dome, no phone, left the nine at home
Nas left the Queensbridge projects – which are plagued with violence, crime, and a daily struggle – and took a brief weekend get-away (most likely a cheap hotel in NYC) to give himself space and distance to write rhymes and relax. In order to ensure complete peace of mind, he left his 9 millimeter gun at home, and made himself unreachable by phone.
It’s as close to a spa day as he can get with his budget.
