Who become rich as dope dealers?
Nothing left for us but hoop dreams and hood tournaments
Thug coaches with subs sittin on the bench; either that or rap
We want the fast way outta this trap
Whether it be 9 to 5 or slangin crack
Nas says that there are only 4 ways to get out of the ghetto:
1. Playing basketball
2. Dealing Drugs
3. Working a 9-5 job
4. Joining the rap game, which he strongly advises people not to do
Furthermore, he says that people are joining the game because it is a fast way out of the ghetto and it brings fame and riches.
