Nas "Life's A B----"

Nas became the official street dreamer scribe when he debuted with Illmatic, delving into the psyche of those of us who [barely] survived that 18-24 age bracket and needed to recalibrate what it means to be a fully grown adult. "I woke up early on my born day, I'm 20 years of blessing/ The essence of adolescent leaves my body now, I'm fresh in/ My physical frame is celebrated 'cause I made it/ One quarter through life some Godly like thing created ... I switched my motto — instead of sayin f--- tomorrow/ That buck that bought a bottle could've struck the lotto."
