I zone, to each his own and this ghetto inhabitant
I find this line quite confusing. At first, I assumed it was another classic instance of Nas malapropism, confusing “inhabitant” for “habitat” — making the line “I zone, to each his own in this ghetto habitat.” But then it seemed possible that inhabitant was intentional and that Nas was saying “to each — and to this ghetto inhabitant (me, Nas) — his own.” If so, this would be quite a startling twist on a common phrase. I’m unsure whether or not this actually holds water though. The malapropism explanation might in the end be more likely.
