    "Nas Is Like"

    Producer: DJ Premier
    Lyric: "I'm a poor man's dream/A thug poet/Live it and I write down and I watch it blow up"
    Why It's Dope: Of all of the things Nas says he's like, this line is probably the most accurate, and the most succinct. The "thug poet" is a term probably most associated with Tupac and continues the theme that Nas carries throughout the album of aligning himself with the greats of the genre. "Live it and I write down and I watch it blow up" has to be another of the realest lines he could spit, dismissing any others that don't spit the truth in their own lyrics.
