*Sounds of punching and bumping*
Nas:You ain't nothin', you ain't nothin.
-Hey Bandit, Bandit, get the dogs! Get the hounds, we gonna
Have ourselves a hangin' tonight!
Back up in this *****.
The right way, though, you know?
-Double-tre son, you know ain't nothin'
Coincedental or accidental, son.
-You know how it's goin' down, man.
Nas:It was all written.
-No question, I'm sayin' man, I mean, how we playin' man,
You know what I'm sayin', they dealt us in, son.
They playin' with a fifty-four deck, you see with the
Jokers in and everything, you know what I'm saying?
Nas:Son, I'm playin' with the fifty-two.
-You wanna stress on how I used to play, that's how I play.
Nas:But, yo, they takin' us into this next millennium, right now.
-I'm sayin' law, you know what I'm sayin' we gotta lay the law,
Cause without law ain't no order, you know what I'm sayin',
That's why these cats are slippin'
Through, you know what I'm sayin? They got the rules missin',
-Yo, word up, though, you know what I mean?
Nas:Son, these *****s look faker than the new hundred dollars, son.
-Yeah, you see that they look Monopoly money, right?
Nas:Word, with the big *** face on it.

You know what I'm sayin?
-All eyes seein', son, you know we real.

Nesa's the woman, know? It was written.
