Nas Rest of My Life Lyrics

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

[Nas]
Life, dead presidents, devilish meant
Overthrow king thrones just 'cause of their negligence
Death, real ****'ll start comin' to light
*****s 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

[Chorus]

[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'why 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 ***** told on me
I'm thinking, "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]

[Nas]
My man gave his mommy coke
So she wouldn't hit the block all crazy for the smoke
Damn *****, 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 **** 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 could of been offed by the cops
Told y'all, Nas will prevail by the book when it's up for sale
About the rest

[Chorus]
