Nas – Wu for the Children Lyrics

Nas Wu for the Children Lyrics

Yeah
I don’t work this hard to be around people I don’t like
Uh, yeah

Gotta be a special type n**** to deal with my life
Gotta be a special type n**** to feel what I write
Special like my classics
Special like my listeners who have attachments
To my old style, won’t let me past it

I don’t see the point with weak sayings like
“All them n***** on top be blockin’,” or never help man, stop it
It’s hard watching brothers who smart but think they not
I need them to realize what they got is a fresh start
That brother that you claim so powerful
The one you said he has a whole lot of pull
Probably already tried to pull his brothers up
And got betrayed, got snaked, got played
Meanwhile he balance his challenges, hard to keep himself paid
It’s so hard for him, even though his talent is God given
Pardon him, stop putting your faults on him
What he did to you now?
The man in him is bringing the kid in you out
You kid him he still playin’ the victim you weirdin’ me out
That’s what my perspective is, maybe ’cause I’m a specialist
Sippin’ mixed liquor beverages
Six figure checks are big but eight figure checks and you rich
The Nas enthusiasts thinkin’ they know what’s best for me
More than I know what’s best for me, no rest for me

Gotta be a special type n**** to deal with my life
Gotta be a special type n**** to feel what I write
Special like my classics
Special like my listeners who have attachments
To my old style, won’t let me past it
Special
Yeah, it’s a privilege
VSOP shit
Special
Very special

Hit, turn up the sample, we makin’ magic
This thing is bigger than I could ever imagine
Duckin’ the flashes from the cameras, leave out the back
Jump in a spacecraft, we can’t tell where we at
Chauffeur drivin’ like a high speed chase, trunk full of smack
Tallest building in Manhattan
Sippin’ on Manhattans, listening to The Manhattans
Queens to Brooklyn, oh, what a feelin’
I should’a had Grammys when Ol’ Dirty said Wu For The Children
Should’a did that remix verse on Gimme The Loot for Biggie
Me, Jay and Frank White is like Cole, Drizzy, and Kenny
One girl for the rest of your life, is that realistic?
Some had told me they like when you call ’em all type of bitches
Ran through a few of them, some gangsta, some Christian
Some with a heart full of hate for me, even with a new n****
They label me a sinner because I left with they soul
There’s really no other feeling, having that type of control, n****

Gotta be a special type woman to deal with my life
Gotta be a special type woman to feel what I write
Special like my classics
Special like my listeners who have attachments
To my old style, won’t let me past it

Gotta be a special type n**** to deal with my life
Gotta be a special type n**** to feel what I write
Special like my classics
Special like my listeners who have attachments
To my old style, won’t let me past it
Special
Yeah
It’s a privilege
VSOP shit
Special
Very special

Rest in peace ODB, Tahim, Virgil
The Queen, Jacqueline Avant
Special people
