Thread title says it all.

Nas - Heaven

"If Heaven was a mile away
And you could ride by the gates
Would you try to run inside when it opens would you try to die today?
Would you pray louder finally believing His power?
Even if you couldn't see, but you could feel would you still doubt him?
How would you start acting?
Would you try to put the ki's down?
Thinking every drug sell that you make in the streets He can see now
Would a fiend even want to get high, would he stop smoking?
If he knew on his own two feet he could just stroll in
To get away and escape from the craziness
And I bet you there's a Heaven for an atheist
It's hard taking this
Racist planet where they take another brother in a handcuff
Even if he innocent nigga get on the car put your motherfucking hands up
Thinking I'm a lose it
My mom's in chemo
Three times a week, yo keep trying but people
Is hard and God your young soldier's not so bold
But needs you
This world's my home but world I would leave"

Remember though, it's not for metaphors or amazing rhymes, it's a verse which you think would impress a non-rap fan, so you're looking for uplifting verses, which don't fulfil the typical stereotypes that people have of hip hop.

Add on.:yes:

Prolly some GZA shit, but most hiphop lyrics are not easy to understand for outsiders.

Prodigy's verse from Apostle's Warning. I'm pretty sure i can convert some metal fan with that verse.
