My poetry's deep, I never fail
Nas has always viewed his lyrics as poetry — why else would he sign up for a Rap Genius account? And after maintaining success and popularity over a span of 11 solo albums and 23+ years in the game, it’s safe to say Nas really does never fail.
“Fail” could also be heard as “fell”, meaning that even though Nas’s poetry is deep like a hole in the ground he never falls into it because he knows how to control his talent.
