I normally don’t do chain challenges. Just not my thing, but when asked to do this one, I was like, why not. I drop quotes into my writings quite frequently. Today’s quotes are all from Nas. He is one of the few, and I do mean few rappers, who can craft a story full of imagery with clever wordplay. He highly influenced my writing style early on.
“Why shoot the breeze about it, when you can be about it.”
“I seen some cold nights and bloody days. They grab me and bullets spray. They use me wrong so I sing this song to this day. My body is cold steel for real. I was made to kill. That’s why they keep me concealed.”
“You got a job part-time and school’s your night thing,
With dreams to settle down, it ain’t far from now,
You gettin interviewed, but your boss is into gettin’ screwed,
Typical day that the black girl sees,
Comin’ home wantin’ more from a college degree”
I like these. 🙂
Thanks Vic! He’s one of the BEST to ever do it. 🙂
I don’t really know his music. Can you suggest a song?
Black girl lost, I gave you power, if I ruled the world, one love, rewind. 🙂
Thanks! I knew you had a bunch! 😄
Too many? Haaa! 🙂
No! I will listen to them all! 😀
Insightful quotes, M. The last one holds true for white girls too.
No doubt, Cathy. Probably for all women. 🙂
One of my favourite rappers also. The track he does pov but in reverse is amazing, so many good tunes.
That one is called rewind. That’s a really innovative track. I’ve never heard anyone duplicate it either.
That’s it! And no I’ve never heard anything as innovative before or since.
