"write in my little vignettes, sipping moet
bitch when you vision me, you vision the best
when i was young the called me olu's son
now he's nas father, i was the good seed
he was the wise gardener"
"when you're too hood to be in the hollywood circles
and you're too rich to be in the hood that birthed you
and you become better than the legends
you thought were the greastest
and out grow the women you thought you would stay with
life becomes clearer when you wipe down your mirrior"
To which somebody replied..
"oh shit Nas going in"
What are these people seeing that im not? can somebody explain this shit because I feel like im missing the big picture.[/quote
oh shit, Nas going in! let me TRY to explain this shit. The first verse Nas is saying as he is writing he is drunk but thats when he is at his best, when he was young he was he was normal known as his fathers son, now he has made itpeople know his father because of Nas,what his father planted has come to fruition.
The second verse Nas is explaining that he doesnt fit in because he knows better than what he used to and has out grown certain things s and he notices is this when he cleans his mirror and looks at himself properly. Keeps it real.
Nas shit is poetry just like Shakespeare,. Not to easy not to complex.
