Nowadays, I need the green in a flash just like the next man
Fuck a yard God, let me see a hundred grand

from Nas – Represent Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Nas transitions from childhood nostalgia to his modern day love for cash in the matter of a few bars. Back in the day, all Nas needed to be happy was a sugar high and “a yard” — slang for $100. But now that Nas is grown he doesn’t get excited over anything less than $100,000.
