You’d think this was a triumphant song from the lyrics – “I never asked to be top of rap’s elite, just a ghetto child tryna’ learn the traps of the streets, but look at me now” – but something in the beat hints at regrets, a longing for a time when things where simpler. With Nas there’s no black and white, his skill at painting pictures in shades of grey is one of the reasons for his success and longevity.
