The fifth song has Kanye and The Dream in features. Nas talks about the time where two black men were arrested at a Starbucks.

 

He raps, "If Starbucks is bought by Nestle, please don't arrest me." 

The sixth song has Nas going over some biblical references the refrain, "Adam and Eve don't fall too far from the apple tree" continues through the song.

 

The album follows his 2012 project Life Is Good. It's also the fourth project out of Kanye's massive spree of albums. He released Pusha-T's DAYTONA in New York, his own album Ye in Wyoming, Kids See Ghosts his collab with Kid Cudi, and then Nasir in New York.
