Street scriptures for lost souls, in the crossroads
To the corner thugs hustling for cars that cost dough

from Nas – Nas Is Like Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

For street runners, homeless and lost souls; they don’t really have that chance to learn, thank God for Nas, he feeds them with his poetic lines like scripture.

“lost souls, in the crossroads” could refer to people who sold their soul to the devil for fortune and fame, this originally came from the blues legend Robert Johnson apparently selling his soul to the devil at the crossroads of highways 1 and 8 in Mississippi. He could be saying he is god, so their selling their souls to him!
