TBT- Nas

The best lyricist imho.


Yo, there’s Asia, Africa, Europe, France, Japan
Pakistan, America, Afghanstan
Yo, there’s Protestants, Jews, Blacks, Arabics
Call a truce, world peace, stop actin like savages
No war, we should take time and think
The bombs and tanks makes mankind extinct
But since the beginning of time it’s been men with arms fightin
Lost lives in the Towers and Pentagon, why then?
Must it go on, we must stop the killin
Tell me why we die, we all God’s children


Heaven’s just a mile away, I’m talkin’ heaven on earth
Ain’t got nottin’ to do with money
Got nottin’ to do with non-material

I’m talkin’ about heaven in your own heart
In your own world baby, in your own existence
To my moms look at me baby
I love you girl, your boy is shinin’, God’s son


And can we please have a moment of truth?
For soldiers and troops away with helmets and boots
And families back home who pray they make it home safe
Hopin’ that they don’t get hit with a stray or missiles
This is just a moment to let you all know that we miss you


It ain’t hard to tell, I excel, then prevail
The mic is contacted, I attract clientele

My creation was for blacks to kill blacks
It’s gats like me that accidentally, go off, makin niggaz memories
But this time, it’s done intentionally
He walked me outside, saw this cat
Cocked me back, said, “Remember me?”
He pulled the trigger but I held on, it felt wrong
Knowing niggaz is waiting in hell for 'im
He squeezed harder, I didn’t budge, sick of the blood
Sick of the thugs, sick of wrath of the, next man’s grudge
What the other kid did was pull out, no doubt
A newer me in better shape, before he lit out, he lead the chase
My owner fell to the floor, his wig split so fast
I didn’t know he was hit, it’s over with
Heard mad niggaz screamin, niggaz runnin, cops is comin
Now I’m happy, until I felt somebody else grab me


Nas is the best to ever do it!

I might be old fashioned, stuck in my ways.
But nothing makes me happier than seeing today.

How many people do wars and terrorism kill in a year.
How many people do all the diseases known to man kill in a year?
Am sure war and terrorism wins hands down.
