War stories we tell them
Nas and his people sit around and tell there stories of their life in the hood just like soldiers told about their harsh times at war. Nas also implies that living in his old neighborhood was like being in war with all the shootings and murders. This could be a reference to Tradin War Stories, A 2pac song on All Eyez On Me.
