Nasty Nasdaq
Y'all going to bow holmes, it's Dow Jones

from Nas – Queens Get The Money Lyrics on Rap Genius


Both the phrases “Nasty Nasdaq” and “Dow Jones” are financial puns on Nas' full name, Nasir Jones. On Illmatic, Nas refers to himself as “Nasty Nas” a bunch of times.

Nas is mocking 50 Cent’s thirst for money with these two financial references, and is suggesting he takes a bow for the man with more integrity.

Before Nas released “Hip Hop Is Dead”, Nas said in an interview that his next album would be called “NASDAQ Dow Jones”.
