Half-man, half-amazing

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


One of the ideologies of the Five-Percent Nation is the rejection of a traditional God-figure in favor of the belief that the black man on Earth is part God. This is consistent with the way Nas views himself, as he has referred to himself as God’s son and depicted himself as a Christ figure in the past. However, unlike Jesus Christ who is considered fully man and fully divine, Nas considers himself to be a mixture of both.
