This verse is considered by many hip hop fans to be one of the best verses OF ALL TIME. The way Nas‘ loose flow and vivid lyrics embrace with one of RZA’s best beats is simply incredible. Not surprisingly, it won the Hip Hop Quotable of the month in The Source magazine.
It’s worth noting that this verse was originally the first verse of another song — Deja Vu — The song was on Nas’s demo tape from 1991, meaning he made this verse when he was 17 years old.
This is also the first time a non Wu-Tang affiliate dropped a verse on a Wu-Tang joint.
Fun fact: Raekwon helped Nas choose this verse.
