Paroles Y'all My Ni**as

de 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
