In the streets I can greet ya
About blunts I teach ya
Inhale deep like the words of my breath

from Nas – N.Y. State of Mind Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Breathe Nas' words in deep. Listen closely because his words are as deep as his hits

It drops deep like it does in my breath

Every track on Illmatic alludes to Nas' love of cannabis at least once
