Undercover niggas spit every way
Won't be surprised if all their rides have federal plates

from Nas – Back When Lyrics on Rap Genius


Numerous rappers in the mainstream media who are constantly dropping rhymes glorifying gangster-ism. Usually are in entourages of many bodyguards. Selling the image of a strong street character who raises a middle finger to the police and yet you just know they would be the first ones to snitch on their opposition. So it wouldn’t phase Nas or anyone else who agrees, if we saw them in the company of the feds.
