I love Nas music, but dude is one of those lame, "let me combine all religions together" type of people instead of taking a stand on what is and what aint right. And he aint a true Muslim either, cuz I remember him spitting an Arabic term in one of his song, and he sounded so contrived that you can tell he doesnt do salat.

Confusion basically is the best way to summarize it. Imagine his state of mind at that time comin from Queens. Grimy, Dark, probably hated everything especially after his closest friend died. The lyrics painted a dark picture.

You can say represent means he was athiest but on "The World is yours" he says

To my man Ill Will, God bless your life
"It's yours!"
To my peoples throughout Queens, God bless your life.

the interesting thing in the lyrics you posted is he doesn't believe in "Gods" that could mean alot of sh*t. Unless he meant it possesively. I cant even tell what he meant in that exact part.

dude its interesting to me because now nas is makin albums called God's Son and stuff but in this Illmatic album he's talking about "don't run with Gods, I don't believe in none of that sh*t" Plus I've never heard anyone say anything about NaS previously being an atheist, so yeah its interesting to me...

Ha I would say Nas got dumber.
Yup, all that weed must've fried his brain

lol. No he wasnt an athiest. He was A 5%. I dont believe in God's,..

God bodys ..I think what he was tryna adress was confusion about what a 5%believes and ppl thinking if your God bodies, and are saying the black-asiatic man is god then you believe in Gods..plural. its like he's correcting someone who misunderstood what being a 5% was about. "Gods, I dont believe in none of that sh*t, youre facts are backwards. (the emphasis is the plurality of the Word Gods)

If You believe in Gods youre considered a Pagean.
Christian, Jews, Muslims, Rastafari dont believe in Gods, The believe in God. Theirs a difference.

Youre facts are backwards, Meaning the belief in a mystery god is backward when the Black asiatic man is god.

it seems like real early he was. but you never know.

Life's a bi*ch he says

I woke up early on my born day, I'm twenty years of blessing
The essence of adolescent leaves my body now I'm fresh in
My physical frame is celebrated cause I made it
One quarter through life some God-ly like thing created
