Nah Mean
Nas & Damian Marley Lyrics


Ya' nah mean, mi dip out a whole fourteen, nah mean,
And reload man extra magazine, nah mean,
A wounded them housing scheme, nah mean,
'Nough a dem a move sideways and lean, nah mean,
Can't come bout when man deh in, nah mean,
We nuh like dem colonial regime, nah mean,
Ethiopian nuh like mussolin', nah mean,
Mi queen hafi rock and come in, nah mean,
And jump pon mi big trampoline, nah mean,
And boost up her self-esteem, nah mean,
'Nough a wonder how man kitchen so clean, nah mean,
And which recipe dat a steam, nah mean,
The lyrics dem a flow like a stream, nah mean,
Make you feel like you living in a dream, nah mean,
It come to the crop man a cream, nah mean,
It come to discipline man a dean, nah mean,
Mi tougher than a hummer limousine, nah mean,
We stepping we fresh and we clean, nah mean,
I burn the stinkiest of green, nah mean,
Better listen up careful and keen, nah mean,
A puppa nas a rock and come in, nah mean

We celebrate like I finished probation, boy boy
Noty head with no chaser, boy boy
From the mouth I can spit out a razor, boy boy
Open up your facial like your boy Roy
In his prime, eat food, dinnertime
Jr. gong pass the Guinness, handle business, black velvet sippers
Females never bid us farewell, they with us
Cause we arrive on the scene
Just like a high beam, nah mean
Don't let us have to make the 9 scream, nah mean
At your racial policing regime, nah mean
Spiritual like a Elohim, nah mean
In a casino or a yacht wherever I'm seen
My brothers and sisters are never forgot, nah mean
Don't wanna hear another soldier drop, nah mean
Another dope addict get shot with the morphine
And feds are indicting my block, nah mean
They're wearing red from they shoes to they top, nah mean
I'm wishing that all the violence would stop, nah mean

We nuh like the sound of siren, nah mean
And some bwoy soft like ice cream, nah mean
From a bwoy mek the feds intervene, nah mean
We send a bwoy go tek intravene, nah mean
Parabellum dem a itch up inna spleen, nah mean
Inna queens gunman reign supreme, nah mean
Kingstonians are real blood fiends, nah mean
The world is a big crime scene, nah mean

Yo yo mr. president
What you doing for my residence?
Yo mr. minister
Why you being sinister?
Yo yo mr. president
What you doing for my residence?
Yo mr. minister
Why you being sinister?

Se man a di real buffalo inna Rastafari regime
Bush bungalow is where mi dwell with mi queen
Trash to the bone down inna camouflage green
'nough a dem that cant go the places we been
'nough a dem that cant see the sights that we seen
That's why them face all a twist up and a lean, nah mean
Dem better mine we kick it off clean, nah mean
Man a gangster just like gambine, dat mean
Dem cant serve congo dread court supine, nah mean
A who you want come in convene, nah mean
Attorney have to rock and come in, nah mean
Mi pocket dem green like spurlene, nah mean
Mi regular fly out and fly in, nah mean
The stadium pack like sardine, nah mean
Cant catch mi speed a fassy hole need caffeine, nah mean
Run out a breath and antihistamine, nah mean
Wash over gold dem come in like Listerine, nah mean
You think a lie we badder than Al Pacine, nah mean

Its genocide its a genocide
Its a genocide its genocide
Fifth floor cooking raw had my own supply
Cause of capitalist ways
That was back in the days
So now I do rap and it pays

@C-BEN Pictures Much love to folks out in Jamaica (Islands & Africa period) but Hip Hop DID NOT start with Jamaica or a Jamaicans. Herc brought the "BOOMING-NESS" to Hip-Hop (technical aspect). At the time most Black Americans was partying with weak ass sound systems, he gave Hip Hop that Bassy sound. You know Jamaican Dancehall/Reggae be bumping


Every Hip Hopper credit James Brown (Issac Haynes) as the inspiration. You have to understand during the birth of Hip Hop, Funk/Disco music was the music of choice at a "Hip Hop" party . Hip Hop was/is American like pie. Blues>Jazz>Swing>Rock>Soul>R&B>Disco>Go-go>Funk>Hip-Hop. Nowhere on Earth is a culture more prominent elsewhere than the place it was created.


Black Americans been rapping since the early 1900's

My friend showed me this. In 2013, at one of his crazy parties. We were stoned as fuck.
He died next year, aged 23, presumably overdozed. Everytime I see this I remember him.
God bless you all, love from cold Russia.
