Be a cold day in hell fore they creep on me
It’s a lesson every premonition
Lotta niggas killed ‘cause they wasn’t paying attention
Listen

from Nas – Trust Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

It is highly unlikely that someone will just “creep up” on Nas without him knowing — either physically to kill him or lyrically as a rapper. This is because he pays attention to what’s around him.

Nas suggests that if you even dream that somebody is about to come after you, you should react. A lot of people don’t take that seriously and that’s how they get taken advantage of.
