Pussy killed me when I was born (What?)
Pardon me, I'll rephrase it: departed mommy's womb decaying

from Nas – Pussy Killz Lyrics on Rap Genius

Meaning

The structure and delivery of this line is reminiscent of his classic quote:

I’m out for presidents to represent me (say what)
I’m out for presidents to represent me (say what)
I’m out for dead presidents to represent me

People are surprised (“what?”) when he says he believes pussy killed him, the common statement is that it´s the greatest joy. What do you mean pussy killed you? That’s not how it works! Just as the classic line from “The World is Yours” starts with a bold statement and a “What”, while the following line clarifies the meaning; As soon as you’re birthed from your Mother, you start aging until your death — while the womb gives you life.
