That Ether line was mad cold yo. I mean, I know Super Ugly was was foul, but honestly, Jigga came off as a herb for boasting about fu*king Nas' old piece. It just made him look like a fan. Nas' line was mad personal......Thanks for the thread
Which is colder though?

This alleged line or Styles P's line about Aaliyah? Thread worthy?

Exactly nobody ever points this out. This was much more different than Pac saying he fu*ked Big's wife. If he did or didn't is up for debate, but all Pac said was I fu*ked your bi*ch that night. Jay damn near had a relationship with those hoe. He was a Nas stan.

this is coming from a jay fan so shut the fu*k up.

MY GOD.....GIVE ME THAT VERSION OF ETHER

I wonder if Jigga or Bey would ever do something like that for Blue Ivy...listing your daughter as a EP on your most profitable album is pretty much a smart move by god son.....props Nas

What he said to kelis when he first met her...smh seriously?!

Ron browz forever aint gon be sh*t after getting on the wrong side of hov... Wonder how things might have turnt out if that swizzy version ether dropped. Actually i like the thought of no "on to the next one" and "empire state of mind" ever being created in the first place... But then swizzy might not even been able to marry alicia keys without hov's illuminated blessings...

List was B.S. overall. If youre going to say 50 things you dont know about someone, they all need to be confirmed facts from the subject itself.

"according to prodigy,...."

[quote=WCIB;25452215]


49. He was offered and declined an audition for the lead in Save The Last Dance.(idk this)

48. His daughter Destiny is listed as an Executive Producer on Stillmatic so she can always receive royalty checks from the album.(really?! it's on the back of the CD)

43. His advance was worth $17,000 after signing with Columbia Records.

42. He used to call himself Kid Wave. (LOL I actually knew this. There was a dude from the IamNas.com forum named KidWave730. Mentioned to me that it was Nas' break dancing name)

41. "Live n*gga Rap" was originally Mobb Deep's record for Hell on Earth, but Nas bought it from them so he could use it on It Was Written. (kind of figured this. Proidgy spit that same flow again on a freestyle prior to IWW)


39. It Was Written was supposed to be produced entirely by Marley Marl, but the idea fell through when Nas heard unfinished songs on the radio.(interesting. Glad it didnt go this way)


33. Ill Will introduced Nas to Chinese food by telling him to stick a plate out his window and dropping the food from the apartment above him. (ill will prolly threw garbage out the window to with his ghetto a.ss lol RIP though)

30. He got rid of his Lexus because he wanted to get a better car than Jay-Z's.
(this n*gga nas was on some other sh*t)

29. He recorded "Ghetto Dreams" on a handheld mic rather with a traditional studio booth set-up. (OMG FANTASTIC!! #Sarcasm)

27. "Nas Is Like" almost didn't happen because DJ Premier had planned on throwing out the record with the sample on it.(thank you it didnt go that 1. 1 of my fav. songs)

20. Kelis' father was also a jazz musician who played in the same bands as Nas' father. (coincidence/life)

19. According to Carmen Bryant, Nas would disappear: She once found him in his "secret" Long Island apartment with pages of rhymes everywhere. (i actually was bored & read her book. It didnt have me looking at Nas in a good light as a father)


16. According to Prodigy, Mike Delorean from Bars-N-Hooks once had a physical f!ght with Nas at Sony Studios. (though it should of been confirmed by Nas, I did read this/heard this from various people. wasnt a f!ght. more like delorean choking Nas. Nas was high talking to Delorean like he was a littla kid. eventually delorean reacted. Nas apologized blaming it on being high ALLEDGELY)

14. Raekwon helped Nas formulate his verse for "Verbal Intercourse."
(Strange considering "DeJa Vu" exists)

1. His daughter Destiny helped him with choruses and gave him words to rap about on Stillmatic. (Destiny murdered on your on sh*t)
