Whose world is this?
(The world is yours, the world is yours)
It's mine, it's mine, it's mine
 Whose world is this?
It's yours 
It's mine, it's mine, it's mine
 Whose world is this?
(The world is yours, the world is yours)
It's mine, it's mine, it's mine
 Whose world is this?

I sip the Dom P, watching "Gandhi" 'til I'm charged 
Then writing in my book of rhymes, all the words past the margin 
To hold the mic I'm throbbin', mechanical movement
 Understandable smooth shit that murderers move with
The thief's theme: play me at night, they won't act right 
The fiend of hip-hop has got me stuck like a crack pipe
The mind activation, react like I'm facin' time like
"Pappy" Mason, with pens I'm embracin'
Wipe the sweat off my dome, spit the phlegm on the streets  Suede Timb's on my feets makes my cipher complete
 Whether crusing in a Sikh's cab, or Montero Jeep
I can't call it, the beats make me falling asleep
I keep falling, but never falling 6 feet deep
I'm out for presidents to represent me (Say what?)
I'm out for presidents to represent me (Say what?)
I'm out for dead presidents to represent me

 Whose world is this?
(The world is yours, the world is yours)
It's mine, it's mine, it's mine
 Whose world is this?
It's yours 
It's mine, it's mine, it's mine
 Whose world is this?
(The world is yours, the world is yours)
It's mine, it's mine, it's mine
 Whose world is this?

To my man Ill Will, God bless your life (It's yours!)
To my peoples throughout Queens, God bless your life
I trip, we box up crazy bitches
 Aiming guns at all my baby pictures 
Beef with housing police, release scriptures that's maybe Hitler's
Yet I'm the mild, money-getting style, rolling foul
The versatile, honey-sticking wild golden child
 Dwelling in the Rotten Apple, you get tackled 
Or caught by the devil's lasso, shit is a hassle 
There's no days, for broke days we sell it: smoke pays
 While all the old folks pray to Jesus, soaking their sins in trays 
Of holy water. Odds against Nas are slaughter  Thinking a word best describing my life to name my daughter 
My strength, my son, the star, will be my resurrection 
Born in correction. All the wrong shit I did, he'll lead a right direction
"How you living?" Large, a broker charge - cards are mediocre 
You flipping coke or playing spit spades and strip poker?

 Whose world is this?
(The world is yours, the world is yours)
It's mine, it's mine, it's mine
 Whose world is this?
It's yours 
It's mine, it's mine, it's mine
 Whose world is this?
(The world is yours, the world is yours)
It's mine, it's mine, it's mine
 Whose world is this?

I'm the young city bandit, hold myself down single-handed
For murder raps, I kick my thoughts alone, get remanded 
Born alone, die alone, no crew to keep my crown or throne 
I'm deep by sound alone, caved inside, 1,000 miles from home
I need a new nigga for this black cloud to follow  Cause while it's over me it's too dark to see tomorrow  Trying to maintain, I flip, fill the clip to the tip
 Picturing my peeps, now the income make my heartbeat skip
And I'm amped up, they locked the champ up, even my brain's in handcuffs  Headed for Indiana, stabbing women like the Phantom 
The crew is lamping, Big Willie-style
 Check the chip-toothed smile, plus I profile wild
 Stash through the flock wools, burning dollars to light my stove 
Walk the blocks with a bop, checking dames, plus the games  People play, bust the problems of the world today
