Thread: nas line on "bridging the gap"

  1. #1

    Default nas line on "bridging the gap"

    i always wondered what nas meant when says

    "discovered my father's music like Prince searching through boxes of Purple Rain"

    prince searching through boxes of....copies of his own album, or what? huh? and how is that like nas discovering his dad's shit?



    p.s. anyone who objects to nas being considered "wu-fam" needs to check themselves

    The line is "discovered my father's music like Prince searching through boxes IN Purple Rain".
    In the movie Prince was going through his father's music to get inspiration and Nas was saying that he does the same thing.

    definitely doesn't sound anything like "in" on the record, it's definitely a "a/o" type round vowel. but yeah, whatever the case, you're almost certainly right thats what he means. so thanks for clearing that up. i've never seen the purple rain film......

    then he's not wu fam, neither is he apart of a group that any wu general has started so im moving this to hiphop spot.
    The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. (Romans 1:18-20)
