This for my trapped in the 90s niggas
For my trapped in the 90s niggas
Ha for y'all niggas

Meaning

Most hip-hop heads today always seem to bring up the fact that their favorite rappers they grew up listening to just can’t match the caliber of quality music they once made back in the day.

They don’t realize we are in a new era of rap and artists eventually progress and move on over time, and with Life Is Good Nas displayed a variety of styles that showed that he has moved on, but he dedicates this one, just this one song to those nostalgic fans longing for that classic 1990s rap.

This definitely did cater to those fans, and is a probably won them over as well, as the classic boom bap sound of this fiery record is a vivid flashback to his 90s style, and gives the same feel we used to get while bumping Illmatic.

Also note the double entendre in the phrase “trapped in the 90’s”, where trapped means hustled
