It's like the game ain't the same
Got younger niggas pulling the triggers, bringing fame to their name
Everyone’s always lamenting how much worse the new generation is.
Nas is upset that this new generation of young men engage in violence out of vanity, not as a last resort. Examples are in City of God and The Wire where kids killed some of the most respected guys that nobody could touch.
