Y'all My Ni**as Lyrics

Nas

  • We use the word everyday
  • Now, if we don’t know the capacity of this word
  • Are we having a conflict or not? Yes sir
  • Because we did not break down the capacity
  • Of the same, what? The same word
  • Brothers and sisters this is why
  • We hung up in our consciousness
  • We been talking wrong
  • Find a room to lock yourself in and close the door
  • It’s some heavy concepts that we gotta explore
  • We gotta strip the word down, rugged and raw
  • The rhetoric of Martin King just ain’t around no more
  • Du Bois ain’t here, James Baldwin either, they all were leaders
  • But they ain’t help me get this Porsche two-seater
  • A lawyer left the hood, he never looked back
  • To be a Fortune 500 CEO, it took rap
  • So what if my pants sag with my hat turned back
  • The same swag got our merchandise flying off the rack
  • Marketing companies is hiring blacks
  • Fresh hip-hop lingo for your campaign ads
  • The controversy surrounds who could say it and win
  • Some niggas are full time, some play and pretend
  • So fuck that, no apologies on the issue if it offends you
  • It’s meant to, it’s that simple
  • Tryin’ to erase me from y'all memory
  • Too late, I’m engraved in history, I’m here, my niggas
  • Speak my name and breathe life in me
  • Make sure y'all never forget me, y'all give me life
  • ’Cause y'all use my name so reckless
  • Whether to be accepted or disrespected and I love it
  • And I love it, especially when y'all do it in public
  • And I’m the subject ‘cause y'all my niggas
  • Yo, I was thinking a little bit
  • What would it take to authenticate my nigganess?
  • Ball ridiculous, twenty six inches when I call up the dealership?
  • Aw, that's some nigga shit
  • We only out for our own benefit? We havin’ too many kids?
  • We’re claudines, welfare recipients
  • The infamous free clinics is the sickest shit
  • Make me think what the hell they clean their syringes with
  • Everybody bleeding, the cops and the demons
  • Courtrooms full of goons, jail-busters leaning
  • Handcuffs squeezed too tight on you flight
  • If you fight they just give in, people used to do sit ins
  • They got Nigeria and Niger two different countries
  • Somehow Niger turned to nigger and shit got ugly
  • The problem is we started thinking like the colonists
  • To know the [Incomprehensible] started dropping their consciousness
  • Tryin’ to erase me from y'all memory
  • Too late, I’m engraved in history, I’m here, my niggas
  • Speak my name and breathe life in me
  • Make sure y'all never forget me, y'all give me life
  • ’Cause y'all use my name so reckless
  • Whether to be accepted or disrespected and I love it
  • And I love it, especially when y'all do it in public
  • And I’m the subject ‘cause y'all my niggas
  • My father was not a banker neither was my neighbor
  • When it came to getting paper, who the hell was gonna train us?
  • A pressure couldn't escape us through the ages
  • We changed the basis of derogatory phrases
  • And I say it’s quite amazing
  • The use of ghetto terms, developed our own language
  • No matter where it came from
  • It’s celebrated, now, people are mad if they ain't one
  • Every word we use, it has a capacity
  • And if you don’t understand the word you’re using
  • And understand the capacity of it
  • You are using words that is creating a destiny for you
  • That you don’t even know or are even conscious of
  • Tryin’ to erase me from y'all memory
  • Too late, I’m engraved in history, I’m here, my niggas
  • Speak my name and breathe life in me
  • Make sure y'all never forget me, y'all give me life
  • ’Cause y'all use my name so reckless
  • Whether to be accepted or disrespected and I love it
  • And I love it, especially when y'all do it in public
  • And I’m the subject
  • Tryin’ to erase me from y'all memory
  • Too late, I’m engraved in history
  • Speak my name and breathe life in me
  • Make sure y'all never forget me
  • ’Cause y'all use my name so reckless
  • Whether to be accepted or disrespected
  • And I love it, especially when y'all do it in public
  • And I’m the subject ‘cause y'all my niggas
