Destroy & Rebuild

This song is by Nas and appears on the album Stillmatic (2001).

This is a journey into the world's most largest And notorious projects, Queensbridge. Listen while Nas saves his hood from the most cowardest rappers.

(Nas)
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 there's this arrogant fuck, his name's Cory
Hung around my man's Like and Big Trevor
Trevor's still locked up, Like's getting his cheddar
Cory changed his name to arr, whatever:
Corn chip? Buckwheat? Look alive, it's Mega!
Right: Mega was his name, sorry about that,
But "it's so hard" to put a coward's name in my rap
Always acting tough, a jokester be fronting
He got snuffed, he got shot in the thigh, he did nothing
But that's Nas: always looking out for brethren
'Cause when brethren don't return love it 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 mad that he signed the 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 can suck my dick!
Bitch, you from around the way; it's sad what this do to me
But Queensbridge, we gotta have unity

So 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

(Nas)
Since we on the subject of traitors and flunkies,
Mega ain't the only faggot in my hood, dummies
There's plenty that wanna be me but cannot
It's like King Arthur and Knight Sir Lancelot
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 button ain't gotten back to me!
Asking a Braveheart to get back your jewelry
You ain't 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
Backward ass niggas...
Man, fuck them niggas, go head with the progam, man, proceed
Old lady pocketbook snatcher, car thief
Of course we ain't 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, it's just not
No more morals, no loyalty, no more community
Queensbridge, we gotta have unity

(Nas)
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 ain't you shamed that
Jungle was busting his gun to get your weak chain back?
They don't respect you; a check's 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: "How's that sound?" 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

(Talking)
"The Bridge is over", my dick!
The Bridge'll never be over, as 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 we can be "Mobb for life" for real, and that's real!
Aiyo, 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 don't even rep this!
Aiyo Mega, you wanna be a gangsta?
There's real gangsta shit going on in the streets, man!
Young 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 motherfucking Neo Brown of the fucking hood?
It's disgusting, man!
Stay out the magazines! Keep my name out your motherfucking mouth!
There's 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 Balis on in silks!
I'ma always be the young don!
Don't be like the niggas on the other side: "hating me 'cause I'm beautiful!"
Real niggas in Queensbridge:
Y'all niggas come up and get this money and move on, baby!
Q.B.
