Others such as myself are trying to carry on tradition

from Nas (Ft. AZ) – Life's a Bitch Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The hustle, the street code of life, and the unique bonds of the hood live in AZ. While others truck off to prison or the graveyard, few are left like he and Nas. They are the last of their kind and must teach the next generation how to live the life.

Na even made a whole song much later about carrying on tradition, during his Hip-hop is Dead campaign.
