Nas - "Thugz Mansion (N.Y.)" lyrics

I want you to close ur eyes, n' invision
the most beautiful place in tha world,
if you in the hood, the ghetto street corner,
come on this journey, the best journey, its a mansion
acres of land, swimmin pools and all that, check it out

[Verse 1] - Nas

I'm capable of anything, my imagination could give me wings,
to fly like doves over the streets watchin' many things,
kids walkin home from school, on drug blocks, missionaries
pass out papers that we love god.
I see faces cases, judges n jurors, masons lawyers n cops,
I watch cuz every thugs face is my mirror,
but this was one imparticular,
this kid he was the vintage stick em up pro,
16 years old did his jail since there was no where to go.
Every mornin' calls his commrad to come n get em' a smoke,
he insane already gone mad, blames himself for his setbacks,
dangerous street corners where his sets at,
sling from dusk till dawn, detectives act like they maniacs,
chasin him, his ass was flarin,
smokin' like a chimney on remy of course he not carin,
he needs a place to go to keep his mind expandin,
I give em a helpin hand, bring em out to Thugz Mansion.


Every corner, every city theres a place where lifes a lil easy,
Lil hennesey, lay back and cool, every hour cuz its all good.
Leave all the stress from the world outside, every wrong done
will be alright, nothin' but peace, love n street passion,
every ghetto needs a Thugs Mansion

[Verse 2] - Tupac

Dear mama don't cry, your baby boy's doin' good
Tell the hommies I'm in heaven and it ain't got hoods
Seen a show with Marvin Gaye last night
It had me shook drinking
peppermint schnapps with Jackie Wilson and Sam Cook
Then some la
