The Genesis
Nas Lyrics

And you're sitting at home doing this shit?
You should be earning a medal for this
Stop fucking around and be a man
There ain't nothing out here for you

Oh yes there is, this!

Yo Nas
Yo what the fuck is this bullshit on the radio Son?

Chill chill, that's the shit God, chill

Hey yo yo, pull down the shade, man. Let's count this money, nigga
Hey yo Nas, put the Jackson's and the Grants over there
You know what I'm sayin? Cause we spending the Jackson's

You know how we get down baby

True, true

Nas, yo Nas, man shit is mad real right now in the Projects
For a nigga yo, word to mother. All them crab ass rappers
Be coming up to me man word to mother man I think we need
To let them niggas know it's real man

True indeed, know what I'm saying, but when it's real you doing this
Even without a record contract, know what I'm saying?

No question

Been doing this since back then

I'm saying regardless how it go down we gon keep it real
We trying to see many mansions and, and Coupes kid!

True, true

Hey yo where's Grand Wizard and Mayo at man?
Taking niggas a long time, man

Aiyyo Dunn! C'mon, C'mon, man stop waving that man
Stop pointing that at me Dunn, take the clip out

First time listening to illmatic, wish me luck

Vinay Gawade

Me to man


@Isaac Ramirez you're right, but I also think that many people also remember other classic songs like The World Is Yours, Life's Bitch, It Ain't Hard To Tell Etc, because there are songs with more views on YouTube

Isaac Ramirez

@Yezus ok im saying the whole album is known for the classic ny state of mind or thats how i see it and i like the album and all of the songs are alright i just feel like the only thing ppl bring up on the album is ny state of mind


@Isaac Ramirez ok weird that you say you like an album just for a song from it but I guess it's perfect, it's just your opinion

Isaac Ramirez

@Yezus to be honest i think it goes hard thats the only thing i need for me to consider what is the best song on a album but thats not for everyone
