Someone needs to kidnap Nas and force him to finish that damn album already.

Life's a biatch and then you die. That's why we get high. Cause you never know when you're gonna get kidnapped in Angola.

He's a lyrical professor, keeps you under pressure
Mind like a computer, the inserter
Paragraphs of murder, the nightclub flirter
This is Nas, kid, you know how it runs
I'm waving automatic guns at nuns
Sticking up the preachers in the church, I'm a stone crook
Serial killer, who works by the phone book

Angola's claims to fame:

1. Biggest Portuguese holding in colonial Africa
2. Cold War battleground, as USA and Cuba supported rival sides of the civil war
3. ???
4. Kidnapping a rapper's concert promoter

Still relevant after all these years, who'dathunkit?

I Have The Touch of a Shocked Monkey: Angola's claims to fame:


`

The Louisiana State Penitentiary (LSP, also
known as ANGOLA, and nicknamed the "Alcatraz of the South" and "The Farm") is a prison farm in Louisiana operated by the Louisiana Department of Public Safety & Corrections.
It is the largest maximum security prison in the United States with 5,000+ offenders and 1,800 staff. It is located on 18,000 acres (73 km²).
Angola is bordered on three sides by the
Mississippi River.

I don't think there is any place in the world with the name Angola that people actually want to visit.

Well, Nas is like sex to a nympho, but nothin sweet. He's like beef, bustin heat through your windows. He's like a street sweeper, greenleaf reaper, like Greeks in Egypt, learnin somethin deep from they teachers.

He's like crime, like your nine, your man you would die for. Always got you, he's like Pop Duke you would cry for. He's like a whole lot of loot - he's like crisp money, corporate accounts from a rich company. He's like ecstasy for ladies. He's like all races combined in one man; like the '99 Summer Jam.

He's a Bulletproof Hummer, man. He's like being locked down around new faces, and none of em fam'. He's the feelin of a millionaire spendin a hundred grand, He's a poor man's dream, a thug poet. Live it, and he writes down and he'll watch it blow up.
Y'all know what he's like, y'all play it your system every night.

Or so I've been lead to believe.

weird. For some reason I was sure Nas died a few years back. Around the same time GURU died.

It's misspelled. It's actually a-kid napping, which is when you take a nap and there are no young goats present.

The term comes from a time when goat herders would nap in the fields and wake up not knowing where their herd had gone off to, thus signifying "someone who comes to ruin by not paying attention."

Whoa, somehow you didn't get boobies!

Also, here to concur overall. Though Kanye brings enough lolz to my playlists to top Lupe Fiasco, imho.

I know Angola isn't quite in the areas of Africa where it is the scariest, though Angola has a rich history of violence and madness. So what I'm trying to say is, I know a lot of young African-Americans believe they are hard, and not to be messed with. I'd put the average 12 year old African-African, up against most African-Americans of any age (Nas and all rappers included) and bet the 12 year old 100 times out of 100 in sheer badness, meaness and willingness to put a tire around you and light it on fire. My advice to Nas...stay away.

I was going to point out the same thing, though I'd also add.... they're shiatty lyrics.

He's always been the superior lyricist IMO.

The last time Jigga impressed me was on Mic Geronimo's Time To Build -well over a decade ago.

I don't know about you but, if someone hired a rapper for my birthday party and he missed a flight, I'd call it a blessing.
