Don't cry mama, this the life I choose myself
Just pray along the way that I don't lose myself

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

Meaning

J. Cole has to go through and among those who don’t understand him, it’s all for the long run, he doesn’t want his mom to worry though, J. Cole believes he will end up ahead of those misunderstood, and he will make it to the top, he just hopes he doesn’t lose his way like when he made “Work Out”.
