All I need is one mic

from Nas – One Mic Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Let that one line sink in: “All I need is one mic”.

That one line by itself gets his message across… which is the theme of this song: all he needs is one mic to get his message across.
This is also a song about fighting against the system. Hence, one mic refers to his “weapon of choice” in his rebel against it.
