Fucking with Stretch from Live Squad
I could’ve died the same night that Stretch died
I just got out of his ride
He dropped me off and drove to Springfield
November thirtieth, another Queens king killed

Meaning

https://soundcloud.com/rapgenius/nas-talks-about-stretch Stretch he was a great friend of mine. We were working on the “It was Written” album together. He dropped me off at home after we was done and as soon as I got into bed, I got the call that his car was riddled with an AK-47 and that’s a gun that ain’t even used in New York then. It destroyed me. He was one of the coolest dudes I’ve ever met in my life. I’ve never talked about it until now. It was hard to talk about. I’ll talk about it more in my upcoming book. But I really want to respect his memory and at the same time talk about our relationship.

Stretch if you don’t know, rapped with Tupac and produced so much of Pac’s record, “Pain” I think. Pac thought that Stretch had something to do with him being set up and Stretch was really hurt by that because they was like brothers. Had Pac lived longer, I think they would have reconciled.
