Deep like the Shining, sparkle like a diamond

from Nas – It Ain't Hard to Tell Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Nas' lyrics are flashy and attractive to the masses, but they are also as deep as Stephen King’s psychological horror novel The Shining. Director Stanley Kubrick was very meticulous while adapting The Shining to film, loading it with possible allusions and scenes that took hundreds of takes to get right.
