48. His daughter Destiny is listed as an Executive Producer on Stillmatic so she can always receive royalty checks from the album.
heard about this 1, that was a very smart idea

49. He was offered and declined an audition for the lead in Save The Last Dance.
Wonder why he declined... although judging from seein the movie i dont think it wuld'a fitted his character.. too cheezy

44. He wrote a screenplay called Scared and put up his own money to hire a cast and crew to shoot the film. He claims to have a copy of it on VHS but never intends to release it.
Really wonders how it came out

43. His advance was worth $17,000 after signing with Columbia Records.
thats it? if he got that lil amount of bread back when they actually cared about giving artists money i wonder what he's gettin lately

37. The original version of "Ether" was produced by Swizz Beatz.
Interesting, never heard of this 1, wonder how that beat sounded

36. God's Son originally was an all-out battle record with Nas dissing nearly every popular rapper at the time, but he reconsidered and scrapped all of the songs.
Glad he didnt, thats a corny move.. Only person that ever gained clout off that was 50 cent, but he was a mixtape artist at the time so it wasnt really offensive b/c no1 cared but the song was good

27. "Nas Is Like" almost didn't happen because DJ Premier had planned on throwing out the record with the sample on it.
Glad he didnt, Great song

22. He lived in Crown Heights, Brooklyn before he lived in Queensbridge.
Im confused now, is he from queensbridge or brooklyn?

One of the most overrated rappers. Illmatic is by far one of the biggest sh*t stains on modern music and it being so over valued by the entire culture is the biggest wall that hip hop as a genre has to overcome for it to become as accepted and frankly, good, in the music world.

There are lights in the hip hop worlds such as kanye west who has created some of the absolute best hip hop music. MBDTF is one beacon of light and it all right dethroned the false king illmatic and the best hip hop album of all time. This has been proven and agreed with by a majority of hip hop critics and fans.

50. He did Illmatic's "N.Y. State of Mind" in one take.

That's fu*king dope, goddamn. One of the best hip-hop tracks of all time too.




45. Russell Simmons thought Illmaticwould be a commercial flop, and that Nas sounded too much like Kool G Rap.

Russell got that sixth sense I see





37. The original version of "Ether" was produced by Swizz Beatz.

21. The original version of "Ether" featured the line, "It should've been you in that plane crash"—referring to the plane crash Aaliyah died in.

I need to hear that shiiiiitttttttttttt. Nas sounding like he went for the jugular. But Prime Swizz on Ether?!?!?!?




35. He admits he messed up a lyric on "The Set Up" because he was too high

I fu*king knew it!!!!!

Used to argue all the time with my uncle about that sh*t lol.




30. He got rid of his Lexus because he wanted to get a better car than Jay-Z's.

I'ma just say lol....




25. During the height of his feud with Jay-Z, Nas called the Roots "sambos," "hypocrites," and "porch monkeys" on Hot 97 for performing with Jay on MTV's Unplugged.



fu*k outta here Nas smh.




22. He lived in Crown Heights, Brooklyn before he lived in Queensbridge.






13. Acccording to Carmen Bryant, one of the reasons Nas didn't sign to Bad Boy was because Craig Mack was creating problems.

fu*king Craig Mack smh....No wonder Biggie sh*tted on him like that.




12. Salaam Remi got Nas and Funk Master Flex on the phone to squash the beef between him and Hot 97.

I did not know that, dope sh*t.




4. He's a fan of the HBO show Girls.

Smooth, I fu*k with that show heavy. Brillant writing, the acting is dope as well.





3. He cried when he heard 2Pac diss him on "Against All Odds."

Damn.




1. His daughter Destiny helped him with choruses and gave him words to rap about on Stillmatic.



That's fu*king beautiful right there.
