“All respect to those who break their neck to keep their hoes in check. Cause oh, they sweat a brother majorly, and I don’t know why your girl keeps paging me.”
Nas - Purple
I decided I had no choice but to post another Nas classic. This is hip-hop at its finest. The lyrics really pack a punch the way they’re smooth sounding, yet at the same time possess Nas’s naturally sharp tone. That’s that iconic New York style. Purple is off of Nas’s 2002 album The Lost Tapes.
“Somebody tell these shorties reach for the stars. Instead they tell ‘em how to reach through the bars, holdin’ a mirror lookin’ down a tear in jail, makin’ weapons to kill ya. We smoke three tokes nigga pour more Henny. He sighs with eyes that seen a war too many. Cold-blooded murderers, universal. Hood to hood, blowin’ smoke, state of mind is purple.”
