You asked if I could trade in your place, how would I hold up?
How long would I ride, before I fold up?
2Pac (Against All Odds) toward Nas “Let the real live niggas hear the truth from me. What would you do if you was me?”
Nasir use rhetorical questions to back his tupac tribute, the statement being ‘pac, you were such a resilient person. Hat off!!!"
“How would i hold up” = nas questions his ability to sustain the pressure of stepping in Tupac shoes and matching predicament (shoutouts, court dates, stardom, paparazzis)
“How long (…) fold up?”: not long for a laid back person like Nas to collapse!!!
