THE MESSAGE is there if you look hard enough. It's right there buried in your STREET DREAMS. Listen to his voice in those dreams that keeps echoing "I GAVE YOU POWER." He also gave you common sense, so WATCH DEM NIGGAS cause they will be quick to hit you with THE SET UP and TAKE IT IN BLOOD. Sometimes you gotta have that everybody is a SUSPECT kinda attitude. If you don't watch your back then who will? You gotta make moves to put yourself in position to take over the game because nobody else will do it for you. What are you gonna rely on, AFFIRMATIVE ACTION!? You'll be just another black boy or BLACK GIRL LOST in the shuffle. You gotta stay focused because you can become a victim of the system just as quick as you can become a victim of the streets. We've all seen how LIVE NIGGA RAP becomes the life niggas get wrapped up in. Didn't you hear NAS IS COMING tell you how niggas "let the streets be the court and corners be the trial"? Do your best to avoid the SHOOTOUTS and take your best shot at making a change. Ask yourself: what would be the first thing I would change IF I RULED THE WORLD?
Much respect to @nas for giving us IT WAS WRITTEN, and all of the other classics he has created over the years.
