Rest Of My Life Lyrics - Nas

Review The Song (3)

[Chorus: Amerie singing]
The rest of my life
The rest of my life

[Verse 1: Nas]
LIFE, dead presidents, devilish meant
Overthrow king thrones just 'cause of their negligence
DEATH, real shit'll start comin' to light
Niggaz you ain't like dickin' your wife, WHAT?
Kind and underminding, grimy, stiff corpse shapin'
Pork bacon, double-cross Satan
HEATHENS, non-god-fearing, lace thong wearing demons
But glory go to God, y'all BENEATH HIM
If y'all don't know that, rap with a old cat
He'll show you streets where them big dealers DROVE AT
Where low-key killers let the fo' clap
Blocka-blocka-blocka -- OH
The glow, the 'dro, the dough for shows
Everything a hood brother thing he needs -- YO
You'll find a goal in a ghetto superstar's roadmap
And I'ma use that for the

[Amerie singing]
For the rest of my life
For the rest of my life

[Verse 2: Nas]
Burnt-out, kicked to the curb
So I had to learn how to turn around a hundred thou' REAL FAST
In '95 that was my last, I went back to the ave thinkin' rap's a thing of the PAST
Rest in peace E Money Bags, no more cabs, got caught with the ratchet in the stash
Lawyer want CASH, my ba'y bro blast burners at cats who gell
They burnt a range with a mollet of COCKTAIL
My little man got fourteen-years for car-jackin' a undercover
Them cops SWEAR, my little nigga told on me
I'm thinkin, "Hello, where's the L-O, V-E"
Pigs play games, my little man'll never say names
Word to his pops with elephant veins
They both locked-up still, word to Will
I'll make it and chill for the

[Chorus: Amerie singing]
For the rest of my life
For the rest of my life

[Verse 3: Nas]
My man gave his mommy coke
So she wouldn't hit the block all crazy for the smoke
DAMN NIGGA, could you picture you supplyin' your own moms
so she don't have to bone for DIMES?
Or give dome for nicks' in the roofs of the projects
where dogs shit and PISS
Yeah, we all plan to get rich but it's all about how it's executed
Lexus coup-ed, brigettes from cubics
Mighta been stupid, but I got far from twenty-six BARS
To ten LP's, what can him tell me? Of them? Of y'all?
I'M NAS, on a track that's unorthodox
Like my life coulda been offed by THE COPS
Told y'all, Nas will prevail by the book when it's up for sale
About the rest

[Chorus: Amerie singing]
For the rest of my life
For the rest of my life

Somethin about this rhyme.... | Reviewer: smoketheemcee | 8/22/2007

somethin' about this rhyne just hits my heart. What he says is not specificly deep in meaning. The phlow is very relaxed and nuthin' fancy. However it resonates in me more than other more complex songs were the vocabulary of his message sounded more poignant. Here the sincerity of his voice is heart felt. Every time I think about the future and what I will do with it ..... the King's words echoe in my soul - Peace to all those inspired by God's Son.

When he says "word to WIll-I'll make it and Chill" gives me chills. My homie recently died and he didnt see me blow up, so it resonates deeply. This album is slept on because of the few filler tracks on it. Wich if studied lyricly are still great songs. It is his most mature album. He gives props to his elders on u.b.r and the jam with his pops. He matures on Gettin' Married. His words to his daughter Destiny are beutiful. On this album he became "A Man in Full" and completely the voice of his people more so than most of those so called "righteous" cats. Peace King. Huey P on the microphone. Nasty reborn.

Easily one of many of Nas' great tracks on Street's Disciple. Amerie was a great choice as a featured artist
