Madonna, life is so crazy
You've been through a lot
I'll tell your story sometimes, you know

Seem like yesterday, I was a baby on the street, I took a holiday, I was steppin' to the beat
I had to pay my rent, on the lower East side, I threw my tag around, let b-boys take me for a ride
I started writing songs, I kinda got into the groove, they tried to criticize my every single move
But then I realized I had nothing left to lose, it took me by surprise when I became my muse

I was fearless like a renegade
I had a feeling that I can't explain
I didn't listen to what people said (whatcha do)
I came, I saw, I conquered

I was constant as the northern star
I had a fire burning in my heart
I never gave up fighting in the dark
I came, I saw, I conquered (let's go)

Ooh I came, I saw, I conquered (x2)

I expressed myself, came like a virgin down the aisle, exposed my naked ass, and I did it with a smile
And when it came to sex, I know I walked the borderline, and when I struck a pose, all the gay boys lost their mind
I justified my love, I made you say a little prayer, they had me crucified, you know I had to take it there
I opened up my heart, I learned the power of good-bye, I saw a ray of light, music saved my life (music saved my life)

I was fearless like a renegade
I had a feeling that I can't explain
I didn't listen to what people said (whatcha do)
I came, I saw, I conquered

I was constant as the northern star
I had a fire burning in my heart
I never gave up fighting in the dark
I came, I saw, I conquered (let's go)

Ooh, I came, I saw, I conquered (x2)

In 1994, I came through the door with that born beats versus scratches, verbally murdered rappers
My mom's from the Carolina's, pops from Natchez, and QB's where I started flowing
But I was scared the cops was gonna kick my apartment door in
Had a baby girl by a crazy girl then I got married, heavily accosted, that ended in a bad divorce
And I know how to pick 'em, don't I?
Never gave a fuck about public pressure or the ridicule of two bigaloos
Now who's the fool?
And I ain't never been happier, no lie, I'm just you humble servant, I'm Nas
If y'all burn down Ferguson I'm a riot, my life cannot be compared to anybody
And trappers, and rappers, any politicians, beauticians, a musician
Anybody, so I'm anybodies, many coffins, heads or tails
Penny tosses, we either dead or in jail, not many options on the block I came from
And I turned to a rap messiah, spit rapid fire, and I roll right back to the block I came from

I was fearless like a renegade
I had a feeling that I can't explain
I didn't listen to what people said (whatcha do)
I came, I saw, I conquered

I was constant as the northern star
I had a fire burning in my heart
I never gave up fighting in the dark
I came, I saw, I conquered (let's go)

Ooh I came, I saw, I conquered (x4)
