Nas - "Destroy amp Rebuild" lyrics

This is a journey into the worlds most largest

And notorious projects, Queensbridge

Listen while Nas saves his hood from the most

Cowardest rappers


He held a mass appeal and a little boy smile

Depressed has a complex his mouth was foul

You need to stay around I feel like telling some stories

First theres this arrogent fuck, his names Cory

Hung around my mans Like and Big Trevor

Trevors still locked up, Likes getting his cheddar

Cory changed his name to arr, whatever

Cornchip, Buckwheat lookalike, its Mega

Right Mega was his name sorry about that

But its so hard to put a cowards name in my rap

Always acting tough, a jokester be fronting

He got snuffed, he got shot in the thigh, he did nothing

But thats Nas always looking out for breadrin

Cause when breadrin they return love they don't stress him

Cause gangstas do gangsta shit, real recognize real

Still laughing to the bank and shit

Back to Cor, got him a deal but his rhymes was whack

Def Jam now that he signed a contract

Now he got jealous and mad at my shine

Making silly tapes, I'm always on his mind

Nonsense, not to be obnoxious kid

Mega for the record you could suck my dick

Bitch you from around the way its sad what this do to me

But Queensbridge, we gotta have unity

[Chorus x2]

They say the bridge is over, the bridge is over

Nah this is a time we destroy and rebuild it

They say, the bridge is over, the bridge is over

Nah we the strongest hood but weak niggas kill it

So they say, the bridge is over, the bridge is over


Since we on the subject of traders and flunkies

Mega aint the only faggot in my hood dummies

Theres plenty that wanna be me but cannot

Its like King Arther and Knight Sir Lance-A-Lot

Lefty and Donnie Brasco, Gotti and Paul

Before I woulda told you Prodigy's my dog

Through the ups and downs, robberies and all

Though I always knew he wanted my downfall

He would say his little slick shit and act real funny

For what nigga you're butt and it got back to me

Asking a Braveheart to get back your jewelry

You aint from my hood, don't even rep Q.B.

Nature moved to Marcy

Man dick riding Nature, nothing else to say

Man Nature moved to Marcy

Back with ass niggas in fear

Fuck them niggas go head with the progam man proceed

Old lady pocketbook snatcher, car thief

Of course we aint friends, you never stood on no blocks

Streets or corners with zombies, ghouls and gangstas

Cops, drug dealers with pools of blood anger

Just fills me when niggas let out of town to set shot

And get filthy rich, its just not

No more morals, no loyalty, no more community

Queensbridge, we gotta have unity



I put the name on the map after Marly and Shan

Q.B. before the ROC had one jam

Before the Death Row and Bad Boy beef

Had streets locked with raw talent, I laugh at the weak

So this about cleaning up house, my own backyard

Famous home of rap stars well known be getting robbed

P how many times aint you shamed that

Jungle was busting his gun to get your weak chain back

They dont respect you a checks due for me for your fame

Mega I hope you blow so I'm saying your name (Mega, Mega)

Hoes play your position cause you'll never be king

Even Jigga want the crown, '' poor thing

I'm representing Queensbridge U.S.A.

Where two sk's go off every day new flesh lay

All you little roaches and rats

Besides my man Ricky, Nas the true ruler is back

So haters say



The bridge is over my dick, Bridge'll never be over

Long as I'm alive and breathing, Braveheart to the graveyard

I'm the William Wallace of this shit

Ayo P, Prodigy I got love for you man, I love you man

You know what I'm saying, just get them unloyal niggas

From out your circle, you can't save everybody

Niggas invited you to the hood, rep it right my nigga

Be untouchable my nigga, so it be Mobb for life for real

And thats real, ayo Nature I can't hold your hand through this shit man

I'm not your father man, be your own man, stand on your own two

I believe in you, believe in yourself nigga or dont even rep this

Ayo Mega you wanna be a gangsta' Theres real gangsta

Shit going on in the streets man, yo niggas is in the grind

Where you be at man' Niggas be bucking

Why you never bucking, where you be at man'

All of a sudden you the motherfuckin Neo Brown of the fucking hood

Its disgusting man, stay out the magazines

Keep my name out your motherfucking mouth

Theres no more room for jealousy, we destroying and rebuilding

That means the cowards get out and the real niggas stay

Niggas been hating me since I been nine, shining

with suede motherfucking balles on in silks

I'ma always be the young don, dont be like the niggas on the other side

Hating me cause I'm beautiful, real niggas in Queensbridge

You niggas come up and get this money and move on baby
