CHORUS:
You see I come from Mississippi, I was young and running wild
Ended up in new york city, Where I had my first child
I named the boy Nasir,All the boys call him Nas
I told him as a youngster, He'll be the greatest man alive

VERSE 1:
Hey hey hey hey the Chuck Berry of this rap skit, Styles I mastered
Many brothers snatched it up and tried to match it
But I'm still Number I every day real, Speak what I want I don't care
what you all feel
Cos I'm my own master, My pop told me be your own boss keep
integrity at every cost
And his home was Natches, Mississippi did it like Miles and Dizzy
Now we getting busy bridging the gap from the blues to jazz to rap, The
history music on this track
Born in the game discovered my father's music like Prince searching
through
boxes of Purple Rain, But my Minneapolis was the Bridge home of
the super
kid some are well known, some doin' bids
Might have ended up on the wrong side of the tracks if my pops
wouldn't have
pulled me back and said yo

CHORUS:
You see I come from Mississippi, I was young and running wild
Ended up in new york city, Where I had my first child
I named the boy Nasir,All the boys call him Nas
I told him as a youngster, He'll be the greatest man alive

VERSE 2:
The blues came from gospel, gospel from blues, Slaves were harmo-
nizing with their ah's and ooh's
Old school new school no school rules, All these years I've been
voicin' my blues
I'm a artist from the start hip-hop got in my heart, Graffiti on the
wall I could have ended in Spofford, Juvenile delinquent my pop's
gave me the right type of tools to think with
Books to read like X and stuff, Cos the schools said the kids had
dyslexia
In art class I was a compulsive sketcher of teachers in my home
room I
drew pics that messed them up, Cos none of them would like my style
read more books than the curriculum
Profiled, Said Mr. Jones please come get your child cos he's writing
mad
poems and his, verses are wild

CHORUS:
You see I come from Mississippi, I was young and running wild
Ended up in new york city, Where I had my first child
I named the boy Nasir,All the boys call him Nas
I told him as a youngster, He'll be the greatest man alive

VERSE 3:
My poppa was not a rolling stone, He's been around the world blow-
ing his horn
Still he came home, Then he got grown changed his name to Olu
Come on tell them about all the places you been to, "I've been to
Saudia Arabia Mozambique, Madagascar, Paris, Greece, but little
Africa is where we live better known as Queensbridge"
Nas, Nas you don't stop, Olu Dara in the house you don't stop, Muddy
Waters Howlin' Wolf You don't stop, From the blues to street hop
you don't stop

CHORUS:
You see I come from Mississippi, I was young and running wild
Ended up in new york city, Where I had my first child
I named the boy Nasir,All the boys call him Nas
I told him as a youngster, He'll be the greatest man alive
