"Nothin'" is the lead single from N.O.R.E.'s third studio album God's Favorite. The song was produced by the Neptunes and featured Neptunes member Pharrell performing the song's hook. "Nothin'" reached No. 10 on the Billboard Hot 100, surpassing his 1998 hit "Superthug" (also produced by the Neptunes) as his biggest solo hit. At the end of 2002, "Nothin'" was ranked No. 37 on the Billboard Year-End Hot 100 singles of 2002.

The song's popularity led to its inclusion on The Source magazine's 2002 compilation The Source Presents: Hip Hop Hits, Vol. 6 and on the soundtrack of the 2003 video game Def Jam Vendetta. Ja Rule and Mike Epps are cameo appearances in this video.
