"Nas Is Like"From an early album of his. - nally
"Nas Is Coming"An example of lyrics is: Yeah yeah yo Nas it's like this man.
("Nas is coming..") And the title line is repeated much throughout. The only album I can find on which it appears is "Nas Is Coming, Album Version". Possibly performed live. It didn't get on his "Greatest Hits" album, so maybe it isn't particularly popular. - Yvonne Sindri
