Nas Brings It Back To Queensbridge On “Store Run”
Nas reflects on his journey to the top on “Store Run.”
The project boasts 15 songs in total with an eclectic collection of collaborations alongside everyone from Eminem and EPMD to A Boogie Wit Da Hoodie and Blxst. However, the best moments often occur when Nas is left to his own devices. On “Store Run,” Hit-Boy chops up a warm, soulful vocal sample as Nas brings it back to his days in Queensbridge. “I’m from the era of razor blades and coke dust,” he raps on the track, reflecting on his humble beginnings to his rise in the tech world with hope of bringing more opportunities back to his old stomping grounds.
Pouring this white wine, you could Richard Millie your left wrist
Keep in perspective, we on God’s time (The world is yours)
What happens when dealers reduce to addicts?
What happens when kings don’t see their potential status?
What’s your exit plan? Face to face with my omens, I never ran
Stood on stages most never can, pyrotechnics and leather pants
