That line is taken too seriously. He’s bullshitting
We’ve just gotta assume he’s not dissing Big L
And nine inch nails themselves, surely?
Response to this http://rapgenius.com/lyrics/Nas/Queens-get-the-money ??
I did this one. Now that you’ve said that, I think it’s highly likely he is speaking about the US Gov, no matter how much I wish he wasn’t (obviously George Bush didn’t organise 9/11!)
I think by “punch down”, Nas is probably referring to the ‘stand’ he took against the Bush administration, in his music and in the media, although remember this was before Obama was elected, and the Republican government was hardly on the verge of collapse. It’s basically a pretty arrogant line, if we’re interpreting it that way.
^^Yeah, I think that’s more what Wayne is implying.
I do not remember them saying “Queens Get The Money” on Shook Ones Pt II, and there’s me thinking I knew both verses off my heart
your crew is featherweight, my gunshot’s will make you levitate
check what I added, I think I might be on to something, or possibly looking way to far into it.
