Light on those, innocent to how the world grows
Some men become murderers, and some girls become hoes
And you accounted for, everything that you heard
Continuing with the metaphysical/spiritual theme, Nas, through his flow, is able to shine the light of heaven on you. From the innocent baby, people will branch off and grow into different entities, many of these entities become corrupt. (murderers, hoes) Now that Nas has enlightened you, you should be held accountable if you choose a corrupt path.
