The 10 Best Lines From Nas' "Life Is Good"

“You blame your own shortcomings on sex and race/The mafia, homosexuals, and all the Jews/It's hogwash point of views, stereotypical/Anti-Semitic like the foul words Gibson spewed/And it's pathetic” - Nas

Song: "Back When"

Nas condemns the bias and hate within his own rap community, where slurs against race and religion are often justification for failure and crime. Blaming “Jews” or stereotypes for career fouls is typical, so prevalent that the stereotype in Nas' eyes actually becomes the hateful man. Nas has faced loss enough times in his life to know that the driving force behind success is his own efforts, rarely the responsibility of another.
