That has a lot to do with being an analytical virgo; we overthink EVERYTHING and strive for perfection, something unattainable.

Greatest MC of all time in my books, one love.

Hi, master. I come from Brescia, a little city near to Milan. Is not so easy writing a text automatically for me. I’m a white man of 31 years and my quarter is in a pacific place in uptown. The things which happen in Brescia are don’t have to compare than NYC. So the contents of my songs can speak about national Italian reality. I have very much passion for the Rap and the Hip Hop culture and I have to study very much books to write real and true. I can’t write like you without overthink! The text have to be full, well structured and with a good intellect. Sorry to all for the uncorrect writing.
Maximum respect for your pieces!
Best rapper EVER! Whenever I hit the streets, I blast ‘N.Y. State of Mind’ off the pod and I feel like I’m back in the 90’s when hiphop was hiphop. Easily my Favorite hiphop song of all time. Your lyrical talent is incomparable. Truthfully my ipod only has Nas and the L.O.X. in it. I barely know who’s on mainstream radio nowadays. I’m from Massachusetts and recently moved to Jersey. I’m a videographer by trade and would be honored to work on a project with ‘Gross and repulsive’ #Respect

Comparing his hood to the scary elm street
Aj city naija boy lol, Nas is talking queens ny main street not ajegunle biyach.
I love it
First dude I saw with a gold Rolex was in 1989, Black Jason, my man from my block
Nas, man, you are awesome. Much love from Brussels, I hope your concert in our city will be awesome.
thats really dope
but this specific line hes talking about a 740 Beamer
3 instruments on this track! Guitar, bass, drum and that’s it! So simple yet so complex
And this was before hip-hop was really doing its thing
Means he wants to fuck
We cleared the rights for this sample with Nat King Cole’s estate, afterwards when they heard the track the estate called and said they would love to hear me rap over some Elvis
It was a true honor
My world view changes the more I learn. I learn daily.
Win some Lose some = the magnificent uncertainty … The beauty of life ..
Nas describes how he has made money and how he is relaxing.
I love the new album, the flow is great on every song. I am a trapped in the 90’s aggin and am very pleased as a fan. We are just about the same age so I can relate to the different subject matter etc. Quality all around, please continue making heartfelt, focused, dope albums, I appreciate it and your contributions to the game.
I LOVE YOU.
More love to Nas,strong delivery and raw instroz.Sumthing these modern days rappers can’t do.However,I thought his lyrics weren’t any different from these other rapper.Too much bragging about money,cars,pussy and all these rappers talk about.Different from the Nas we know and similar to all these rappers.Ofcourse the message of the album was he made it n is chilling but he coulda found a more poetical way of saying it rather than straight prose.Shoutout to Nas though,one of illiest alive!!!peacey
Love from Uganda. Am so glad u still alive and can still bless us with yo flow. Am blessed to appreciate the depth of the meaning of your lyrics and your world view even when we from 2 different places (geographically). Only u and Hov could share a table (and a mic) with BIG, Pac and Rakim. Without going into dramatics we hip hop heads here consider u the best mc/ rapper alive...... and am a Jay fan too but it is what it is Nas u the SHIT, u the ILLEST. word , peace. Uganda, Africa. email@example.com
well who better to explain Nas lyrics than Nas himself? thanks!!
Nas is the Don. Still go tthat smooth flow.
Nas is one of the best lyricists ever!!!….There are alot of wack artists today..i only lisen to REAL hiphop..
Transparent ceiling could be pun.. not only transparent the ceiling of his car but also he could see the sky clearly because he has more money to purchase such extravagent items and he is more Higher than he was before
Ey yow big dawg Is your boy South Africa! Big respect on your new album, You Keep it Gangsta and dope lyrics. I don’t regret couple of bucks i spent is worth
Life to me is more like a constant battle between good and evil. righteousness of being a good man and a good father or run this streets wit my selected few and go against the laws of lady liberty .
Nas, i have loved you from the time that you first dropped your first tape. You are the greatest lyricist known and always keeping it real and fresh to def.

Nas You’re the greatest rap genuis.<3
Money hypnotizing the next man’s girl
A king’s girl attracted to king shit gets entranced by another king’s paper
Or, a chick who wants more. She will see more n the next dude n be his. Corny, but true in some cases.
From a girls perspective it’s true…unfortunately…but still men can have the last hope but not to find gyal like that!!!
I appreciate that Nas uses proper grammar and punctuation.
