Long before Illmatic, Nas was living in a N.Y. State of Mind, absorbing the people, places and events that would come to define his lyrics. Witness #TheRide that gave us one of hip-hop’s greatest legends.

"Hennessy x Nas: The Ride (Full)"
Voiceover, Dialog, Spoken Text, Script, or Lyrics
I lay puzzle as I backtrack to earlier times
To the New York state of mind
The city never sleeps
Full of villains and creeps
That's where I learned to do my hustle, had to scuffle with freaks
Each block is like a maze, maze
And life is parallel to hell, but I must maintain
Be prosperous, though we live dangerous
It's only right that I was born to use mics
Welcome to Nas, y'all!
"I tell the stories that need to be told." - Nas
