What if the Bridge never showed me how to hold a weapon?

from Jadakiss (Ft. Nas) – What If Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Nas grew up in the Queensbridge Projects in New York City, a notoriously dangerous area. He’s saying, “What if I never figured out how to defend myself?”

“Say, Queensbridge!” — Ron Artest

Also, notice how Nas cleverly uses the word bridge, a musical term after the line about the hook.
