Kick my little raps 'cause I thought n**gas wouldn't understand
And now in every jam I'm the f**king man I rap in front of more n**gas than in the slave ships I used to watch C.H.I.P.S, now I load glock clips I got to have it, I miss Mr Magic Versatile, my style switches like a f**ot But not a bisexual, I'm an intellectual Of rap, I'm a professional and that's no question, yo These are the lyrics of the man, you can't near it, understand, cause in the streets, I'm well known like the number man

Nas, why did you do it?

It's halftime

So I react never calmly on a hype track
I set it off wit my own rhyme
Cause I'm as ill as a convict who kills for phone time
I'm max like cassettes, I flex like sex
In your stereo sets, Nas will catch wreck
