    Lyrics

    Uh, uh, uh

    Lord have mercy, Jesus Christ
    He's just nice, He just slice like a Ginsu
    Look at the life that I been through
    I'm the last real nigga alive, that's official

    Lord have mercy, Jesus Christ
    He's just nice, He just slice like a Ginsu
    Look at the life that I been through
    I'm the last real nigga alive, that's official

    Y'all don't know about my Biggie wars
    Who you thought 'Kick In The Door' was for?
    But that's my heart, y'all still trippin' of this Jigga shit
    Real niggas listen up and I'mma tell you how the whole thing start

    Off top I brung Queens up from hard times
    Rockin' at the Fever, streets was all mine
    It was my version of the blues, droppin' our schools
    The crack epidemic had rap representin' new rules

    So I, got in 'em shoes, tried 'em, wore 'em
    Wasn't a perfect fit, so I couldn't sport 'em
    Young murderers ride, I knew all 'em
    Jungle got shot, Will died, we was warring

    I wrote it in my album
    I was 18 when Lake seen the Island
    And Lord held me down and
    My surroundings started changing
    I had a baby, I was making my rounds with AZ

    Niggas started noticing my flow and was open when
    The Golden Child closed 'em in with more style than them older men
    Puff tried to start a label, Prince Rakeem had formed Wu-Tang
    Snoop and Dre had a new thang

    So Puff drove his new Range through Queens bridge Projects
    He let me drive it, before Ready to Die hit
    BIG and I hit blunts performing at the Arc
    Next thing you knew, BIG blew and all the balling starts

    He had Kim and his crew, I found Fox
    Only niggas in New York with number one charts
    BIG was ahead of his time him and Raekwon my niggas
    But dig it they couldn't get along

    That's when Ghost face said it on the Purple tape
    Bad Boy biting Nas album come awake
    BIG told me Rae was stealing my slang
    And Rae told me out in Shaolin BIG would do the same thing

    But I borrowed from both them niggas
    Jigga started to flow like us, but hit with 'Ain't No Niggas'
    Had much Versace swagger BIG admired the Brooklyn knight
    And it took him in as Iceberg the rapper
    Today don't know nothing, about this bullshit
    There's more shit than wanting to be this King of New York shit

    Uh, uh
    Lord have mercy, Jesus Christ
    He's just nice, He just slice like a Ginsu
    Look at the life that I been through
    I'm the last real nigga alive, that's official

    Lord have mercy, Jesus Christ
    He's just nice, He just slice like a Ginsu
    Look at the life that I been through
    I'm the last real nigga alive, that's official

    Rap became a version of Malcolm and Martin
    Rest in peace Will, Queens bridge live on
    There's some ghetto secrets I can't rhyme in this song
    There's some missing pieces I had to leave out

    I had lot trust for Steve Stoute
    At some point till I got to know him
    We old friends, but what's loyal?
    Puff soaked Interscope offices
    With champagne bottles on Steve
    And Steve thought the drama is on me
    'Cause previously it would have been

    Against whoever friends forever
    However, I learn with some niggas it's all business
    But I'm a street dude with morals
    To diss niggas with Jigga too much
    He used to say Jay wanted my spot
    I laughed, stayed home, never hung a lot

    A quiet man who used to be alone planning
    Baby moms thought I was too quiet, couldn't stand it
    She hit the streets, later on she hittin' the sheets
    With a rapper who wanted me on his songs thinking he strong
    I taught her how to watch for cars that might follow
    Taught her street shit that I know her weakness was shine yo

    But that's her, I ain't mad baby, it made me stronger
    Now I get my paper longer
    Illmatic, I was boss it was written I flossed
    One of the most creative LPs ever to hit stores
    In the Firm I learned I am Nostradamus
    QB's Finest, Oochie Wally, faced more problems
    I gave it all up so I can chill at home with mama
    She was getting old and sick so I stayed beside her

    We had the best times, she asked would I make more songs
    I told her not till I see her health get more strong
    In the middle of that, Jay tried to sneak attack
    Assassinate my character, degrade my hood
    'Cause in order for him to be the Don, Nas had to go
    The Gam-B-I-N-O rules I understood
    What y'all want, see, I already had

    The Gift and The Curse?
    Fuck that shit, the first shall be last
    I'm the man's man, a rapper's rapper
    G-O-D S-O-N, they'll be none after
    I was Scarface, Jay was Manolo
    It hurt me when I had to kill him and his whole squad for dolo

    Uh, uh, uh
    Lord have mercy, Jesus Christ
    He's just nice, He just slice like a Ginsu
    Look at the life that I been through
    I'm the last real nigga alive, that's official

    Lord have mercy, Jesus Christ
    He's just nice, He just slice like a Ginsu
    Look at the life that I been through
    I'm the last real nigga alive, that's official
