I hold a Mac-11, and attack a reverend
I contact 11 L's and max in heaven

from Nas – One Time 4 Your Mind Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Nas is showing just how ruthless he can be, saying he’ll assault a reverend with a machine pistol, and then get high enough from 11 L’s (or blunts) to reach heaven. I don’t think that God would allow him in after attacking a reverend, however.

Perhaps Nas' disdain for religion at this time in his life influenced this line. Instead of accepting their idea of heaven, he violently rejects it and finds his own personal heaven through getting high.

This line was originally used on “Nas Will Prevail”, the demo version of “It Ain’t Hard to Tell.” That song contains a variation of this line:

Holdin a pistol at a pastor, pullin the trigger faster
Tell ‘em I was sent by his Master
