Nas, why did you do it
You know you got the mad fat fluid when you rhyme, it's halftime

from Nas – Halftime Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Nas shifts to the third person here, dropping more braggadocio, which fits with the theme of the track. The question is rhetorical an open ended; it could be, “Nas, why did you dominate the rap game?”

The second line is a poetic way of alluding to the fluidity of Nas’s verse. See flow
