And I'mma be that same nigga for the door
And I'mma still walk the same path, we soon clash
We get stacks, you do the math
Family by Nas (Ft. Mobb Deep)

Even though he thinks and daydream about getting out of this life. He knows he will always be the same hustler and are bound to clash with others over either territory or customers.

Double Entendre…

  • When you get money (stacks) you have to count (do the math) it, but you have to do it.
  • We get money so figure out what that leads to or how they got the money… probably beating the shit out of the others like in the next line.

Even though we gained cash on fish
I'm trapped on reason being we ain't all rich
Family by Nas (Ft. Mobb Deep)

Fishscale is a reference to a highly potent form of cocaine named Peruvian Fishscale.

So they probably earned a lot of cash for fish!

But they still ain´t rich and it´s a lot of hustling so he wants a more comfortable life.

Yeah youknahmsayin
Not for nothing baby
Knahmsayin wanna give a shout out to my peoples
YouknowhatImean, Yambo, Ill Will
Killa Black, my brother
It's never gonna be another, word up
Yeah, you know how we do things
Family by Nas (Ft. Mobb Deep)

Prodigy explained in an interview with Planetill how Yambo and Killa Black, Havoc´s brother died:

He [Killa Black] wasn’t that type of person to do something like that. He was a wild boy, he was busting his guns and all that, but he wasn’t the type of nigga to kill himself so that hit niggas hard and it was confusing and ‘til this day it affects all us and it’s just hard to understand why certain things happen in life. That’s how life is man, it’s real crazy. And right after Killa [B], my man Yammy got killed out of town. He was doing some work out of town and somebody ran up behind him with a bat and hit him in the head with a bat and killed him. Yammy was one of the strongest niggas that I knew.

That was our man; he gave us the name Infamous ‘cause that was his name. He had it tatted on his arm, “Infamous Yambo.” So when Yammy got killed that fucked us up man ‘cause he would come to every show; that was like our strength and even Twin that was our strength that was the wild twin that died. The twins got different personalities, Scarface he was the wild one like anything that go down, before me and Hav even notice it they on it; it’s not going down like that. So we lost a lot of strength, Killa, Yammy, Scarface. It was devastating to ni***


Ill Will was Nas best friend and DJ who died getting shot. You can read more about it here.

[Verse 4: Nas]
Yo they probably did
Family by Nas (Ft. Mobb Deep)

Nicely ties to Prodigys previous verse. Nas agrees that they probably shat their draws after they heard how good Nas and Mobb Deep was or how scary they are.

[Produced by Madlib] High by Freddie Gibbs (Ft. Danny Brown)

The composition features strings, knocking drums, slick guitar riffs, and vocal chops make for a weed-smoker anthem. As a full composition, the record is up-tempo track and makes room for plenty of slight yet effective variations until the drastically slowed ending. It contains a sample of vocals from “I Get High (On Your Memory)” by Freda Payne.

[Produced by Madlib] Scarface by Freddie Gibbs

“Scarface” is the first full track on this album, Ironically the rapper Scarface is later featured on this LP. It sets the sinister yet soulful sound of a gangster blaxploitation film on wax, while Freddie fittingly drops his gangster rap. The sampled bass and electric guitars infuse the 1970’s soul sound with Madlib’s swinging drums.

It contains 2 samples:

I been on boats, nut down throats, pee on bitches who famous
Pretty dick, puttin stitches in they anus
Let My Niggas Live by Wu-Tang Clan (Ft. Nas)

Nas is such a str he could would ever he wants to even with famous girls thats how bad they want him. Deepthroat him, pee on them, sodomize etc.

Maybe a nod to his man Biggies line:

I’ll put Chante Moore pussy in stitches

Either Nas member is so big or he does it so rough that the girls number 2 breaks. Eiter way he was influenced by Hugh Hefner and what he started with the porn. When guys see it they also want to do it. Therefore he created this animal.

I'm God-son, son of man, son of Marcus Garvey Let My Niggas Live by Wu-Tang Clan (Ft. Nas)

These are all diffirent ways of saying he is Jesus/messiah.

Nas has explained that we are all gods children, but this line it confirms that he is Jesus/messiah since jesus is often referred to as son of man.

Garvey was unique in advancing a Pan-African philosophy to inspire a global mass movement and economic empowerment focusing on Africa known as Garveyism. Promoted by the UNIA as a movement of African Redemption, Garveyism would eventually inspire others, ranging from the Nation of Islam to the Rastafari movement (which proclaims Garvey as a prophet).

If he is his son, Nas is the next black leader, some rastas even believe Garvey to be messiah. Nas is Messiahs kid or the return of messiah. Tieing to the next line: Rastafari …


Ties to the first lines: why did you do this to me? I´m you son!
