    Lyrics

    Yeah, hahaha

    "Cause when I flow the for the street"
    Who else could it be"
    "Nas"

    Yo
    Explode, my thoughts were drunken from quarts of beers
    Was years back, before Nasir would explore a career in rap
    As a music dude, I mastered this Rubik's Cube
    Godzilla, fought Gargantua, eyes glued to the tube
    Was a, long time ago, John Boy Ice
    Geronimo po-lice jumping out Chryslers, easywider paper
    Pops puffin his sess, punching his chest like a gorilla
    Outside was psychoes, killers
    Saw Divine, Goon and Chungo, Lil' Turkey
    R.I.P. Tyrone, 'member no cursing front of Ms. Vercey
    Big Percy, Crazy Paul, the Sledge Sisters
    My building was 40-16, once in the blue, hallways was clean
    I knew, all that I'd seen had meant something
    Learned early, to fear none little Nas was hunting
    Living carefree laughing, got jokes on the daily
    Y'all acting like some old folks y'all don't hear me
    Yo I'm in my second childhood

    "Cause when I flow the for the street"
    "Who else could it be"
    "N-A-S"
    "Nas"
    "Resurrect, through the birth of my seed"
    "Queensbridge"
    "Make everything right"
    "Get yours, nigga"

    "Cause when I flow the for the street"
    "Who else could it be"
    "N-A-S"
    "Nas"
    "Resurrect, through the birth of my seed"
    "Queensbridge"
    "Make everything right"
    "Get yours, nigga"

    Yo, dude is 31, living in his moms crib
    Ex-convict, was paroled there after his long bid
    Cornrows in his hair, still slinging, got a crew
    They break his moms furniture, watching Comicview
    Got babies by different ladies high smoking L's
    In the same spot he stood since, eighty-five well
    When his stash slow, he be crazy
    Say he by his moms, hit her on her payday
    Junior high school dropout, teachers never cared
    They was paid just to show up and leave, no one succeeds
    So he moves with his peers, different blocks, different years
    Sitting on, different benches like it's musical chairs
    All his peoples moved on in life, he's on the corners at night
    With young dudes it's them he want to be like
    It's sad but it's fun to him right? He never grew up
    31 and can't give his youth, he's in his second childhood

    "Cause when I flow the for the street"
    "Who else could it be"
    "N-A-S"
    "Nas"
    "Resurrect, through the birth of my seed"
    "Queensbridge"
    "Make everything right"
    "Get yours, nigga"

    "Cause when I flow the for the street"
    "Who else could it be"
    "N-A-S"
    "Nas"
    "Resurrect, through the birth of my seed"
    "Queensbridge"
    "Make everything right"
    "Get yours, nigga"

    Baby girl she's always talking name dropping hanging late
    Drinking smoking hates her baby daddy, craves shopping
    E popping Ecstasy taking, won't finish her education
    Best friend she keeps changing, stuck with limitations
    Lusting men, many hotels, Fendi Chanel
    With nothing in her bank account fronting she do well
    Her kid suffers he don't get that love he deserve
    He the Sun, she the Earth, single mom, even worse
    No job never stay working, mad purty
    Shorty they call her the brain surgeon
    Time flying she the same person, never matures
    All her friends married doing well
    She's in the streets yakkety yakkin like she was 12
    Honey is twenty-seven, argues fights
    Selfish in her own right, polite, guess she's in her second childhood

    "Cause when I flow the for the street"
    "Who else could it be"
    "N-A-S"
    "Nas"
    "Resurrect, through the birth of my seed"
    "Queensbridge"
    "Make everything right"
    "Get yours, nigga"

    "Cause when I flow the for the street"
    "Who else could it be"
    "N-A-S"
    "Nas"
    "Resurrect, through the birth of my seed"
    "Queensbridge"
    "Make everything right"
    "Get yours, nigga"

    "Who else could it be"
    "N-A-S"
    "Nas"
