Not stories by Aesop,

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

Meaning

Aesop’s Fables are a collection of writings which teach valuable moral lessons. Nas’s stories differ in that they don’t teach easy moral lessons, but rather dwell on the darker side of life where good deeds go unrewarded and bad deeds unpunished.
