Simultaneously making me climb higher
Heinous crimes behind me,

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

Meaning

Nas talks about how he has ‘grown up’ morally.

He has went from committing heinous crimes in the hoods of Queensbridge, which he has talked about in previous songs, to being a pure artist, trying to help people find the truth in his music, putting all the problems he had had previously in life behind him.

“Simultaneously making me climb higher” can also refer to his much increased money.
