or
Nas

[Nas]
Uh..
Pacino life, G a roll, casino dice
At the Mirage, Vegas strip, neon lights
Gamblers, puffin cigars, couples and stars

Flashin' cameras, dealers, shufflin' cards
Spent the weekend, already miss New York and it's odd
'Cause I'm the first to say it got too many hustlers who rob
I never hang out, when we do we bust the four-five

Cause shells comin' back at us while we jump in the ride
Flyin', duckin', our b****es in the club cluckin'
Tellin' my wife who I was dancin' with like I was f***in'
Flew back, Monday evening from the bottom where the sun was beamin'

To the concrete jungle of cement
Limousine's from LaGuardia airport, sleepin'
Told my dogs peace, kept in movin, I was beat when
Got to my crib, where the hell my keys went?

Ringin' the bell, heard a yell but wasn't sure
Dropped my luggage to the ground, put my ear to the door
Slow music, H-Town, no that's down low
My baby's, drop Mercedes is parked, I creep around yo

To the back, she must be inside and can't hear
Probably upstairs, in the mirror, doin her hair
I walked in through the back door entrance
Shocked it was unlocked, when I walked in, I smelled incense

Chased by a weed aroma, empty Guinnesses
And lipstick marks on like three empty Coronas
A pair of blue jeans on the carpet; size 12 Timberlands
Somethin' swingin on the ceiling fan, I stopped it

Swingin' slower and slower..
On the last swing I saw it was a G-string and heard laughin'
Thought about my nine-side Glock but somethin' made me disregard it
Started my way up to where the noise and music was at
Froze, I couldn't react

Bedroom door opened a crack, seen wifey layin' with some n****
Mumblin' s***, he had one hand on her a**
And she was rubbin' his dick, toastin' wine gla**es
Cherry scented candles was lit, couldn't handle the s***

Searchin' for words I found none, without a sound
I left the house with a sick smile and took my gun
Now I'm out buggin', whylin', what I'm goin' do?
Call my man Horse, meet me outside, I'm comin' through

{Nas singing}
I thought you loved me
I thought you cared for me
I thought you needed me
Did you believe in me? * repeat 2X *

[Nas]
Got up with Horse, showed a look on my face was mad lost
I ain't know whether to cry or just, try to laugh it off
"Son you home early -- they wiped you out that quick?"
I said, "Nah," showed him the plastic with nine in the clip

Hopped in the whip, popped in the disc, pressed play
To the Grand Central, from the Van Wyck Expressway
I said, "Bet you'll never guess in a million years
What I just saw happenin -- and probably still is

Snuck in my crib - some n**** f***in my wiz
I saw dem, they ain't see me, I ducked and I slid
I'm a grab shorty, I need you to grab the n**** for me"
Just when I thought I found love, she s***ted on me

Shopped in Vegas, a present, for our engagement
20 G's on a ring I would have hit her today with
My surprise couldn't match the one she had for me
We pulled up, he was walkin out the house backwardly

Parked in the back of my house, they couldn't see us
Ran to the side of my house, c***ed the heater
Walked to the front when I talked he had junk
B**** tried to slam the door shut, got caught in Horse foot

Shot the Spanish kid in the rib, drug him in
Grabbed her face, say goodbye to your undercover friend
One between the eye, she's died, by mistake
Must've held the gat too tight, pointed at her face

Heard somebody knock -- Horse helped me hide the bodies
Heard si-rens, I guess we goin out we out like kamikazes
We surrounded, red lights flashin, who's inside?
Came out a bullhorn, I'm contemplatin suicide

Horse asked me for the Mac, he gave me dap, one love
C***ed the strap, then he ran out the back
Mad shots couldn't tell what was goin on
Sat on the floor near my dead girl, put her in my arms

Pulled her ring out my pocket I was savin
Put it on her ring finger c***ed the glock, and started prayin
To Muhammad and Allah, the most beneficial
Through you, all things are possible, I know you're listenin

I never meant for this to happen, I never dreamed
This'd be my fate, such a grotesque, murder scene
On that note, same time, the cops busted in
Kissed my lady, her blood on my lips, I said "Amen"

Put the nine to my head, pulled the hammer, held her close
Squeeze the toast, said to her, "Now unto God, we elope"

... we elope ..
