7. Top 3 Nas songs: i gave u power, heaven, one mic

Ok... I need some help. I'm a choreographer who plans to do a project including several nas songs in fall/winter 06. the theme is the effect of poverty & adversity on the concept of death, heaven, & spirituality on inner city youth. nas' "heaven" is without a doubt going in the project, as is india arie's "beautiful place". i am curious if anyone has any ideas on other songs (preferably rap or r&b) which deal with similar themes as nas' heaven (by any artists). any help greatly appreciated!
