I ain't a Christian, but I find that we pray alike
Never the one to ask for the time to a saint
Despite the differences in religious traditions and customs, everyone ultimately wishes for the same things.
Of course none of this affects Nas. As he previously stated on Represent, he’s skeptical of religion, doesn’t need it, and helps himself. He wouldn’t ever approach a saint to even ask for the time, much less for guidance.
