Ever since being introduced to the world on the posse cut “Live At The Bar-B – Q” Nas has always had the ability to catch the listener’s ear by saying iconic line’s such as……

"Street's disciple, my raps are trifle
I shoot slugs from my brain just like a rifle
Stampede the stage, I leave the microphone split
Play Mr Tuffy while I'm on some Pretty Tone shit
Verbal assassin, my architect pleases
When I was twelve, I went to hell for snuffing Jesus
Nasty Nas is a rebel to America
Police murderer, I'm causing hysteria"
