America
by Nas

  • On this Stargate-produced track Nas raps about sexism and racism in the US and how the world views American citizens. Nas told MTV News: "When Americans want their independence and they celebrate it, they know what's still going down. We can't forget it. America still got a lot of growing up to do. America has so much great potential. You know, I love this country, but at the same time, we have to fix up a lot of things. And it's just a reminder."
