  • This is a journey into the worlds most largest
    And notorious projects, queensbridge
    Listen while nas saves his hood from the most
    Cowardest rappers

    [Nas]
    He held a mass appeal and a little boy smile
    Depressed has a complex his mouth was foul
    You need to stay around i feel like telling some stories
    First there's this arrogent ****, his names cory
    Hung around my mans like and big trevor
    Trevors still locked up, likes getting his cheddar
    Cory changed his name to arr, whatever
    Cornchip, buckwheat lookalike, its mega
    Right mega was his name sorry about that
    But its so hard to put a cowards name in my rap
    Always acting tough, a jokester be fronting
    He got snuffed, he got shot in the thigh, he did nothing
    But that's nas always looking out for breadrin
    Cause when breadrin they return love they don't stress him
    Cause gangstas do gangsta ****, real recognize real
    Still laughing to the bank and ****
    Back to cor, got him a deal but his rhymes was whack
    Def jam now that he signed a contract
    Now he got jealous and mad at my shine
    Making silly tapes, i'm always on his mind
    Nonsense, not to be obnoxious kid
    Mega for the record you could suck my ****
    ***** you from around the way its sad what this do to me
    But queensbridge, we gotta have unity

    [Chorus: x 2]
    They say the bridge is over, the bridge is over
    Nah this is a time we destroy and rebuild it
    They say, the bridge is over, the bridge is over
    Nah we the strongest hood but weak *****s kill it
    So they say, the bridge is over, the bridge is over

    [Nas]
    Since we on the subject of traders and flunkies
    Mega ain't the only ****** in my hood dummies
    there's plenty that want to be me but cannot
    Its like king arther and knight sir lance-a-lot
    Lefty and donnie brasco, gotti and paul
    Before i woulda told you prodigy's my dog
    Through the ups and downs, robberies and all
    Though i always knew he wanted my downfall
    He would say his little slick **** and act real funny
    For what ***** you're butt and it got back to me
    Asking a braveheart to get back your jewelry
    You ain't from my hood, don't even rep q.b.
    Nature moved to marcy
    Man **** riding nature, nothing else to say
    Man nature moved to marcy
    Back with *** *****s in fear
    **** them *****s go head with the progam man proceed
    Old lady pocketbook snatcher, car thief
    Of course we ain't friends, you never stood on no blocks
    Streets or corners with zombies, ghouls and gangstas
    Cops, drug dealers with pools of blood anger
    Just fills me when *****s let out of town to set shot
    And get filthy rich, its just not
    No more morals, no loyalty, no more community
    Queensbridge, we gotta have unity

    [Chorus]

    [Nas]
    I put the name on the map after marly and shan
    Q.b. before the roc had one jam
    Before the death row and bad boy beef
    Had streets locked with raw talent, i laugh at the weak
    So this about cleaning up house, my own backyard
    Famous home of rap stars well known be getting robbed
    P how many times ain't you shamed that
    Jungle was busting his gun to get your weak chain back
    They don't respect you a checks due for me for your fame
    Mega i hope you blow so i'm saying your name (mega, mega)
    Hoes play your position cause you'll never be king
    Even jigga want the crown, ?? poor thing
    I'm representing queensbridge u.s.a.
    Where two sk's go off every day new flesh lay
    All you little roaches and rats
    Besides my man ricky, nas the true ruler is back
    So haters say

    [Chorus]

    [Talking]
    The bridge is over my ****, bridge'll never be over
    Long as i'm alive and breathing, braveheart to the graveyard
    I'm the william wallace of this ****
    Ayo p, prodigy i got love for you man, i love you man
    You know what i'm saying, just get them unloyal *****s
    From out your circle, you can't save everybody
    *****s invited you to the hood, rep it right my *****
    Be untouchable my *****, so it be mobb for life for real
    And that's real, ayo nature i can't hold your hand through this **** man
    I'm not your father man, be your own man, stand on your own two
    I believe in you, believe in yourself ***** or don't even rep this
    Ayo mega you want to be a gangsta? there's real gangsta
    **** going on in the streets man, yo *****s is in the grind
    Where you be at man? *****s be bucking
    Why you never bucking, where you be at man?
    All of a sudden you the **********in neo brown of the ****ing hood
    Its disgusting man, stay out the magazines
    Keep my name out your **********ing mouth
    there's no more room for jealousy, we destroying and rebuilding
    That means the cowards get out and the real *****s stay
    *****s been hating me since i been nine, shining
    With suede **********ing balles on in silks
    I'ma always be the young don, don't be like the *****s on the other side
    Hating me cause i'm beautiful, real *****s in queensbridge
    You *****s come up and get this money and move on baby
    Q.b.
