Nas's raps should be locked in a cell, it ain't hard to tell
Two ways to interpret this line:
- Nas’s raps are so powerful and dangerous that they have to be locked away to prevent them from hurting anyone
- Or his rhymes are so rare and valuable that they have to be secured in a safe place to make sure they are never misplaced or forgotten
We can’t be sure if it was intentional or not, but ending an album that begins in the fucking dungeons of rap with a line about jail cells would be a very nice touch.
