This line talks about Nas trying to find himself when he was committing the aforementioned crimes. To find oneself is a common wish, especially among hurt or religious people, and Nas makes a commentary on that in this line.
He says that he’s not able to find himself, most likely because he has lost a part of himself with his upbringing.

Nas talks about how he has ‘grown up’ morally.

He has went from committing heinous crimes in the hoods of Queensbridge, which he has talked about in previous songs, to being a pure artist, trying to help people find the truth in his music, putting all the problems he had had previously in life behind him.

“Simultaneously making me climb higher” can also refer to his much increased money.

Nas makes music for people who were much like him growing up. He hopes to send the message that no matter how you grow up, you have a chance to be successful like him, as long as you follow your dream.
To add to this, much of Nas’s supporters are black males who come from the hood or the ghetto, and he makes music for these faithful.

"You ain't from Russia, so bitch why you Russian?" (Nelly – Pimp Juice) | pending

This is the absolute worst lyric ever because not only is it nonsensical, it presumes all Europeans are in a hurry or impatient lol

Nas is deep. I expounded on what Nas said. How is that bad? I am so puzzled by the offense you all have taken. I helped every one see the deeper level of meaning in what Nas said.

Close…Lord Nasir The Seer, With all due respect, This lyric is about how cats will underestimate what I am aware of and how Because I’m mellow, in Cali chill'n, pass'n the blunt. They assume I am vulnerable. Also a heads up, an example of such vulnerability is; Late night relaxing with the blaxican cholita from San Bernardino when you sleep (literally, proverbially and or figurative sleep) She will open the door for her essay cousins on her Aztec side. Trust me. They did that out here a lot. People underestimate California all the time because we are not going all fast like in NY. People let their guard down and get Californication_A.Menace
