The World Is Yours - NaS

"The World Is Yours" is the third single from rapper Nas' debut album Illmatic, released a month after the album. The song was produced by Pete Rock—who also sings the song's chorus—and it samples "I Love Music" by Ahmad Jamal and "It's Yours" by T La Rock. A remix of the song was produced by Q-Tip featuring similar but new lyrics; both it and the original were released by Columbia Records as singles, and promoted with music videos. It reached #13 on the Hot Rap Singles chart in 1994 and is now lauded as one of Nas' best tracks.

The song and the video play homage to Scarface. In which the title is about the lead character Tony Montana seeing a blimp that says "The World Is Yours" and the video is a scene from the movie where Tony gets in to a big argument with his wife and then shortly later his best friend.
