Future not crystal clear yet Baccarat

from Nas (Ft. Mazy) – The Don Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

At the time when he was cutting school and hanging out with drug dealers, he did not know that his future would be as a famous and idolized rapper.

He uses the expression ‘not crystal clear’ to mean that he had some inkling of a belief that he could do this, but he was not sure that it was what his life would result in.

The line uses a popular crystal manufacturer, Baccarat, to reinforce the imagery of crystal, and to make a small call-out to the fact that he is glamorous and knowledgeable enough to be able to name-drop them.
