Nas - Just A Moment Feat. Quan

Lyrics
Quan:

This is just a moment,
dedicated to my mother, my grandmother, my father,
all my niggaz in the pen, all my niggez that died in the struggle.
Love y'all.

Can we please have a moment of silence?
That's for my niggaz doin' years in confinement
And for my soldiers that passed over, no longer living
They couldn't run whenever the reaper came to get 'em
Can we please pour out some liquor?
Symobolizin', let's take in time to consider that
Though our thugs ain't here, the love is here
And we gon' rep 'til slugs kill us here
This for my dawgs stuck in the struggle tryin' to gain
Smokin' trauma, sniffin' Ra while sellin' cocaine
Trapped in the game, not knowin' how to stop and get by
To live it alive, so instead they live it to die
Can we please have a moment of peace?
For every G that fell for his flag in the streets
Bloodin' and thuggin', folkin' and lokin'
Crippin' and creepin', Latin and kingin'
Or just for poor righteous teachin'

As day comes and night falls
For the rest of our life we'll miss y'all
And even though life must go on, we'll still mourn
While wishin' y'all were home---x2

Nas:
Yeah, and can we have another moment of silence?
For brothers who died from black-on-black violence
From here to the Dark Continent were rebels sell diamonds
To clients all over the world, got little Black girls dyin'
And can we please pour some more liquor?
For Will, Bokeem, Bar, Pappy -- my niggaz
Here's another Warrior Song from Nasty and Quan
It's to him I pass the baton to carry this on
Street's Disciple, salute to those who's gone with bullets
And I promise through rhymin' Quan gon' rep his life to the fullest
And can we please have a moment of truth?
For soldiers and troops away with helmets and boots
And families back home that pray they make it home safe
Hopin' that they don't get hit by a stray or missiles
This is just a moment to let you all know that we miss you
Mommy I'm still here, wishin' I was there with you
Let's take a moment

As day comes and night falls
For the rest of our life we'll miss y'all
And even though life must go on, we'll still mourn
While wishin' y'all were home---x2

Nas & Quan
And can we please have a moment to mourn?
For Pac, Biggie and Pun 'cause through us they live on
Jam Master Jay, Freaky Ty and Alliyah
Big L and Left Eye, when we die we hope to see ya
Photographs of lost memories, on the block with blunts and hennessey
Pictures of niggaz in mock neck-shirts,
Valentine nail in brown bags
Brothers like to brag bout their cousins
That's locked in the system,
we all fall victim, we all called Christian
or Islamic faith to restore all our faith
Barb wire and tall brick wall but we all can escape

As day comes and night falls
For the rest of our life we'll miss y'all
And even though life must go on, we'll still mourn
While wishin' y'all were home---x2

Outro:

I wanna dedicate this out here
to all the streets,
all 'n everybody in the hood
getting cought up in drama
shooting and going to jail for nothing
getting killed for nothing.
You gotta avoid that stuff.
