Memories have magical powers to conjure feelings both good and bad years later down the road. The vibes are type glorious for the enchanting remembrance that is "Memory Lane," which glows thanks to a warm DJ Premier track and vivid, streetwise literature. It's a slice of real life, so it's all here—the ups and the downs—and you can see everything Nas is spitting. "My window faces shootouts, drug overdoses/Live amongst no roses, only the drama, for real... I reinforce the frail, with lyrics that's real/Word to Christ, a disciple of streets, trifle on beats/I decipher prophecies through a mic and say peace." This is one trip worth taking time and time again.
