Uncover with rhymes. It gets no realer

from Nas (Ft. Damian Marley) – Patience (Sabali) Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

It follows from the previous line “A world buried in time [Africa]” and “Uncover with rhymes,” means to reveal the truth of Africa with patience (Sabali) as only music can. The last piece “It gets no realer” means that it cannot be made more real, more true or more clear than the poet/musician makes it in song.

Nas believes that the role of a poet/rapper/musician is to deliver the truth to the people. In this sense, Nas sees himself and other similar artists similar to prophets — those who have a calling to uncover knowledge and enlighten the people.
