"The World Is Yours" is a 1994 single by Nas, from his debut album, Illmatic. The song was produced by Pete Rock (who also sings the song's chorus), and features a sample of "I Love Music" by Ahmad Jamal and a sample of "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. The reflective lyric, "I need a new nigga for this black cloud to follow/Cause while it's over me it's too dark to see tomorrow" summed up frustration with the unique obstacles of inner city life. Jay-Z, Nas' one time rival, also sampled a portion of "The World Is Yours" for the chorus of his first single, "Dead Presidents."
At one point "The World is Yours" can be heard in the background to a scene in Antwone Fisher. The song is also featured in the soundtrack to the popular video game, Tony Hawk's Underground.
"Whose world is this?
The world is yours, the world is yours"
