Twenty years in this game, looking seventeen
The Don was recorded in 2011.
2011-17=1994. A reference to his debut album, illmatic, which came out in 1994.
Nas is one of those highly blessed people who don’t age (“lookin' 17”).
Ain’t shit changed.
In addition to Nas' fountain of youth appearance, he could also be implying here that though he’s been in the game for two decades, he’s still as fresh as all of the new guys coming onto the scene.
Nas made a statement similar to this a year earlier on “Rich and black”
