Listen to Nas 1994 masterpiece "The World Is Yours."

There is no theme for this week's throwback track. Let's just bask in the sound of "The World Is Yours," a song Nas released in 1994 at the precocious age of 20.

Nas' optimistic take on the tribulations of everyday living in New York City captures the metropolis' grit and infinite wonder in equal measure. Pete Rock's legendary flip of Ahmad Jamal's "I Love Music" is fluid as water, a testament to both Jamal's imaginative piano voicings and Rock's ability to integrate them into a dusty boom bap groove. 

Quotable Lyrics

I trip, we box up crazy bitches
Aimin' guns in all my baby pictures
Beef with housing police
Release scriptures that's maybe Hitler's
Yet I'm the mild, money-gettin' style, rollin' foul
The versatile, honey-sticking, wild golden child
Dwelling in the Rotten Apple, you get tackled
Or caught by the devil's lasso, shit is a hassle
