Million dollar stones in my camouflaged Gucci

from Nas – Untitled Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

“‘Million dollar stones in my camouflaged Gucci’ harks to one of hip-hop’s greatest complexities (or contradictions). Many Golden Aged rappers such as Rakim and Big Daddy Kane embodied Hip-Hop’s materialism while simultaneously spitting socially aware lyrics. Jay-Z went into great detail describing the political/bling-bling dichotomy in his book Decoded after he himself famously wore a Che Guevara T-shirt while sporting a platinum chain.”
