No Idea’s Original
Just close your eyes, press play, and take in Nas’s words. The way he paints pictures with his words is just incredible.
Nas is the greatest rap lyricist the world has seen yet.
I don’t think there are many other fans who would consider this to be among their favorite works of his, but to me, it’s one of his best displays of pure lyricism. This goes beyond complex rhyme schemes and clever wordplay.
There’s an alternate version with a different beat and with a more traditional verse-chorus-verse song structure, but I think it works better as one long rap.
