Testo della canzone Highly Favored (Nas), tratta dall'album The Lost Tapes 2

Highly Favored - Nas

Patient
My faith is highly favored by the father's love to all
Rest in peace to Zanu, the barber brought cases
Celebrate and take us back through thought
The real New York, death to rapists and rats
The touch school to Brooklyn stories
The kings, the lifers, the lords of Queens
Or the stories on Puerto Rican righteous, I heard things
Know some people who know people
Getting money, the broke people claim you owe some people
It's easy to explain anything to a real liver of life
Who lives where you live and see shit the same
Gotta watch who you joke with or get checked
We easily mistake joke for disrespect
Where I'm from, it's never over if somebody dies
Somebody gon' ride, years later, somebody son, double 4-5
You laid up in ICU, hoping you survive
Too many stories like this one

What's shaking?
My faith is highly favored by the father, peace to all (Peace to all, yeah)
Patience
My faith is highly favored by the father, peace to y'all (Peace to y'all, yeah)

What's shaking?
My faith is highly favored by the father, peace to all (Peace to all, yeah)
What's shaking? (What's shaking?)
What's shaking?

Uh, yeah
Some are caricatures, amateur boys
I'm like a classic pianist with a handful of swords
Bandages on my fingers, still I'm managing chords
Like a live band, performing in a sand storm
Blind but I still hit the right keys
Swift as a life breeze drippin'

In fear of God, scented in Diptyque fragrance
Some nights Creed flavors, I am motivation
I don't talk on the next man, I'm never hatin'
This daily bread, holy bread Alphabetical numerals, codes of red
What's more dense, gold or lead
What's more expensive
The OG said, "No matter what it is, rent it
And never buy it, it's all temporary possession
We don't own nothing on this Earth but our soul and that's the lesson"
Project apartment parties, rest in peace to Marley
Try not to get booked by Officer Laverty

What's shaking?
My faith is highly favored by the father, peace to all
(Peace to all, yeah)
Patience
My faith is highly favored by the father, peace to y'all
(Peace to y'all, yeah)

What's shaking?
My faith is highly favored by the father, peace to all
(Peace to all, yeah)
What's shaking? (What's shaking?)
What's shaking?
