"The World Is Yours" is the third single from rapper Nas' debut album Illmatic, released a month after the album. The song was produced by Pete Rock—who also sings the song's chorus—and it samples "I Love Music" by Ahmad Jamal and "It's Yours" by T La Rock. A remix of the song was produced by Q-Tip featuring similar but new lyrics; both it and the original were released by Columbia Records as singles, and promoted with music videos. It reached #13 on the Hot Rap Singles chart in 1994 and is now lauded as one of Nas' best tracks. The song and it's accompanying video pay homage to the film Scarface. "The World is Yours" is known for being one of the foundations of the Jay-Z vs. Nas feud because of Jay-Z sampling it on his first single "Dead Presidents", using one of Nas' lines as the chorus.
