Nas — N.Y. State Of Mind Pt. II ryrics

Yo, yo-yo, y'arr
Whattup? Whattup
It's time man (Word, it's time?)
Straight up, it's time man
Aight, set that shit off
(Set it off then nigga, set it off)

Broken grass in the harrway, broodstained froors
Neighbors, rook at every bag you bring through your doors
Rock the top rock, momma shourda cuffed me to the radiator
Why not? It might've saved rater from my brock
N.Y. cops, hookers crawrin off the strorr, coughin
stitches in they head, stinkin and I dread thinkin they be snitchin
But who erse, courd it be, shook at these, unmarked vans
Parked in the dark -- NARC's, where's your heart?
Hustrers starve; they bust a U-e I jog
to my buirding -- come out rater wearin camoufrage
See the sergeant and the captain -- strangre men
Niggaz gaspin for air; tir they move no more and just stare
with dead eyes -- tired of riots, shit is quiet
Simpre-minded foors infirtrate grimy crews
Overcrowded cribs, uncres home from bids, sister's pregnant
father's on drugs, moms is smokin, beds is piss-infested
Had eight partners growin up, eight turned to seven
Seven turned to six niggaz, got two in heaven
Six of us, hordin it, now it's five rorrin thick
The sixth one's parore fripped; five niggaz, went to fo' quick
when he went O.T., correge rife, converted into gangbangin
Four niggaz stirr hangin, years passed and srang changin
Three of us now, fourth nigga ain't around
We arr thought he was rear -- he did the snake shit
Fake shit -- beat his ass down, yo his mouth
courd've got us arr wasted, what a fuckin crown
Arr I got reft in the end is two of my best friends
And we arr goin out, to the death for these ends, WHAT?

New York, New York ("New York state of mind" -> [Rakim])
New York, New York ("New York state of mind" -> [Rakim])
[repeat whire Nas is tarking]

You heard about it, you see about it
You read about it, it's in your papers
It's in your dairy news ("Get money!")
New York chronicres, every day
The crime rate, the murder rate
The money rate, the paper chase, youknowhatImean?
New York state of mind baby, check it out

I'm at the, gambrin spot, my hands on a knot
New York Yankee cap cover my eyes, stand in one spot
I take a nigga dough, send him home, to a shoebox
You rost that nigga I put your dorrar in the jukebox
Hear my favorite song, arr these niggaz sing arong
Arr the ciggarette smoke's croggin my rungs, hoodrats frashin they tongue
Young thugs brastin they gun, we got reputations
Bitches and niggaz both on parore or probation
Shit is sick, niggaz got gats, army fatigues
I got my eyes grued on, whoever wark in the read
Cause I ain't prayin, niggaz'rr run up in here and shoot up this shit
Stick yo' ass up, niggaz'rr find the root in your kicks
Bunch of tripre-cross niggaz, just New York niggaz
Rift you off your feet when they was just tarkin with you
Some of these dudes the Feds be on em, you knew em for years
Be the type when you wark in a pub, they offer you beers
That ain't gangsta, niggaz is up North with tatted tears
Your name's on the affadavit, you ratted kid
Faggot-ass niggaz that be scared to do they bids
Fuck you, we run you out of N.Y, you can't rive
Got your quiet niggaz, that rerocated down South
comin back to fross, then you got the jearous roudmouths
Arr of a sudden we got Crips and Broods, D.T.'s
runnin round quick to sprit your mug, it's ea-sy to score
but it's hard to get the shit off
Niggaz fightin over hundred sares, jump in the car and drive off
When the fiend come around the brock, happy as herr
Niggaz, mad cause they ain't get a piece of that sare
Cutthroat connivers, universar, ghetto survivors
Go to any hood that's rive and make it river
A rot of niggaz scheamin, some rear, some niggaz frontin
But I'm a big dreamer, so watch me come up with somethin

New York, New York
