Blunt Ashes

Nas

[Intro: Nas]
Yo, I want the Langston Hughes and 
Alex Haley
got blazed before they told stories
I'ma get blazed before I tell y'all 
stories
I saw on tv today, this man lost his
 son, his son died
So he had him cremated, took his 
ashes, and then made it to a Diamond
 ring
Now he watches his son shine 
everyday
I just thought about that, while I 
sit here ashing in this ash tray, 
yea

[Verse 1: Nas]
The makin' of a mad band
Intricate stories of DeVante Swing
Ava Gardner, the crashin' of James 
Dean
Bobby Brown influenced by Rick James
 and it goes..
Prince wanted Alexander O'Neal to be
 Morris Day or Jerome
But Alex was puttin' coke in his 
nose, nigga whylin'
Could be a myth but I swear that the
 source was close, Phyllis Hyman
Killed herself, it was crazy, mommy 
was bad they say
Donny Hathaway freefall from a 
balcony, he swings

[HooK: Nas]
As the blunt ash falls into the ash 
tray
I could see my whole life fly past 
me
Did I?, did I keep it gangsta or 
keep it classy?
And will the money and fame out last
 me?
The blunt's ash falls down in the 
ash tray
Will I see my whole life fly past 
me?
I'm askin' did I keep it gangsta or 
keep it classy?
Did I?... anything else you wanna know, just wanna ask me? [Verse 2: Nas] Sam trusted Womack with his main lady He tossin' in the grave, like, "this is how you repay me"? A change gon' come, wish you didn't trust me so much Marvin said "no mountain's high enough, fly stuff" David Ruffin was punchin' Tammy Terrell, gave her concussions While the Funk Brothers was layin' down the percussion When Flo from the Surpremes died, Diana Ross cried Many people said that she was laughin' inside [HooK: Nas] As the blunt ash falls into the ash tray I could see my whole life fly past me Did I?, did I keep it gangsta or keep it classy? And will the money and fame out last me? The blunt's ash falls down in the ash tray Will I see my whole life fly past me? I'm askin' did I keep it gangsta or keep it classy? Did I?... anything else you wanna know, just wanna ask me? [Verse 3: Nas] John F. Kennedy's, enemies dealt with treachery It interests me, Judy Campbell in Gucci sandals She's what a temptress be The death of Ennis Cosby, what a mystery Or the Chicagoan Harold Washington Someone is sabotaging them Watch out for the traps Larry Troutman killed his brother Roger Troutman Then he killed himself, that's the end of Zapp And I wouldn't change a thing, mistakes of the greats This is what came from their pain From their hurt we gain, an unfair exchange [HooK: Nas] As the blunt ash falls into the ash tray I could see my whole life fly past me Did I?, did I keep it gangsta or keep it classy? And will the money and fame out last me? The blunt's ash falls down in the ash tray Will I see my whole life fly past me? I'm askin' did I keep it gangsta or keep it classy? [Outro: Nas (over the hook)] I could smell old bogey cigars Long record perfumes, smellin' just as sweet, ha-ha Me and my wife K, flyin' in a drop-top like Ruby and Ottis Davis baby Knaw'mean?, yo man, I get smoked out, and start thinkin' about Patty McDaniels got a Oscar, for playin' Mami in 'Gone With The Wind' And she didn't get allowed, wasn't even allowed to go to the premier Could'ya'believe that?, couldn't go to premier to her joint Tssk. man, you know they were strong back then man Blunt from my ash tray, nothin' gon' to live past me, yea, yea, yea
