So I got in them shoes, tried 'em, wore them
Wasn't a perfect fit so I couldn't sport 'em
Young murderers ride, I knew all them

from Nas – Last Real Nigga Alive Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

Nas tried to slang mad rocks and tote guns, but that didn’t exactly fit to what he wanted to do so he didn’t do it, but he DID know all the young bangers and slangers. He discusses this in depth on Rick Ross' “Triple Beam Dreams”.
