    <h2>"Nas Is Like"</h2><strong>Producer: </strong>DJ Premier<br /><strong>Lyric:</strong> "I'm a poor man's dream/A thug poet/Live it and I write down and I watch it blow up"<br /><strong>Why It's Dope:</strong> 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.<br /><br /><iframe width="670" height="380" src="//" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>
