Shorty's laugh was cold blooded as he spoke so foul
Only twelve trying to tell me that he liked my style
Then I rose, wiping the blunts ash from my clothes
then froze only to blow the herb smoke through my nose
and told my little man that i'm a go cyprose
there's some jewels in the skull that he can sell if he chose

that last line..can anyone tell me their interpretation of that?

"Left some jewels in his coat that he could sell if he chose"

Nah, the threadstarter was correct. It's "left some jewels in his skull that he could sell if he chose." Nas lines are often subject to pretty open-ended interpretations. He's either saying that he left some nuggets of wisdom that he could pass on or he's saying he could exploit the wisdom he's giving him ala 10%ers.

If you watch the movie Belly they act out that scene from that verse towards the end of the movie. He puts some actual jewelery in the kid's coat pocket.

He said Left Some Jewels in his skull that he can sell if he chose


Doesn't even sound like coat and him giving actual jewels to the kid in belly was just a metaphor for it

Anyway it means

He talked to him and gave him knowledge and wisdom that he could spread around to other people if he chose to.

he wanted to show all the youngsters a way to get out of this fake reality they in
lookin up to the bigger guys they see so much that they loose they're fuckin sense so he rose and shows that he can achieve more then they livin for

Yeah its obviously a metaphor for him knowing he has some jewels of wisdom in his heart or mind or whatever to share. But to say if he chose is that he doesn't necessarily have the ability to use them or understand that.

Y'all remember that seen in Belly where he's smokin wit shorty on the bench & he leaves him a chain it's just like that verse That's ill.

03-19-2007, 07:47 PM
it's the coat one not the skull,

they act out the verse on Belly where he's talking to the little kid and I think he hand the kid crack rocks, but it's been i while since i seen it.
