Therefore I write from the heart
Apologies to OG's for sacrificin' my art

from J. Cole – Let Nas Down Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Cole writes his verses like they’ll be his last, so he’s not always concerned with what is best for his art, but more getting his thoughts out as honest as possible.

He feels like he’s sacrificing his art by changing to make hits, but he also feels like everything he writes is coming out honestly, even though socially conscious artists like Nas might disagree with the message.
