I'm glad the younger generation is putting themselves on....and even if you're older, good sh*t. Why cats gotta act like geniuses just cuz they were privy to information before you? That sh*t don't make you smarter

Nas has always been that dude to Hip Hop purists. I don't even need to compare him to Jay cuz they're on different lanes. Jay has been pop since Hard Knock Life. Anyone who says otherwise is lying.
^thank you

His own blood Nashawn is out here struggling as well.

The man is also the reason why Cormega was never able to break big as he persuaded Def Jam to shelve The Testament

He attempted to do the same with Jay-Z by leaving the man stranded despite informing Jay that he would be present to record a verse for "Bring It On", leaving Jay to rush the recording for that song in order to get the album released on schedule

He had AZ ostracized from the mainstream because he regarded him as a threat to his career due to AZ completely annihilating him on every track they recorded together

Quan who wrote a lot of Nas' material circa God's Son and Street's Disciples son died and Nas couldn't even pay for the funeral let alone call Quan and console him

While Jay-Z was dedicating his proceedings to Columbine, Nas was in videos like Hate Me Now pouring liquor on innocent women (some of whom possibly had children who had sadly witness their mothers succumb to such vile treatment)

He claimed he would perform in Africa to a rap promoter there and due to his sadistic nature actually did not turn up, which led to the promoter being kidnapped and tortured to near death.

This man Nas is a sadistic creep who doesn't deserve to be celebrated by the culture as he's contributed nothing positive.

i knew this before i ever used the internet or heard of boxden.


how mind blowing is that.


this time called the 90's where we read magazines and books to get our information.
Exactly. I knew this too.

If that blows your mind how about these other little gems about illmatic....

1. Busta Rhymes Could Have Had The “Halftime” Beat

Busta Rhymes once told XXL that Large Professor made the beat that would later become “Halftime” in front of him. But once Busta got the beat, he didn’t know what to do with it. He told XXL, “Then I heard it on ‘Halftime,’ and I was like, Goddamn, I was a stupid a.ss for not touching this beat!”

2. AZ’s Verse On “Life’s A B***h” Lead To A Bidding War

AZ was initially hesitant to drop a verse on “Life’s A bi*ch” but then eventually did and it turned out to be a classic. In fact, it was so well received a bidding war began over who would get to sign AZ. In the end, AZ signed with EMI and dropped his underrated debut Doe Or Die in 1995.

3. Nas Did “N.Y. State of Mind” In One Take

What’s crazy about “New York State of Mind” isn’t just that it’s Nas’ best song ever, what’s crazy is how many tries it took for a young Nas to get it just right.

“He did that in one take,” explained to DJ Premier, when we spoke to him last year for "DJ Premier Tells All." According to Nas, the original verse was close to 60 bars which he wrote in the studio that day.

“If you listen to ‘N.Y. State of Mind’” continued Premier. “You’ll hear him going, ‘I don’t know how to start this sh*t,’ because he literally just wrote it. Before he started the verse, I was signaling him going, ‘One, two, three,’ and he just goes in.”

4. It’s Short Because It Was Rushed

One of the most distinct features about Illmatic is its length. At a mere 39 minutes and nine songs, it’s the type of album that proves that sometimes less is more. However, the tracklisting was more a result of rush than design.

In the years leading up to the album’s release, the streets were so thirsty for Nas material that enterprising DJs started putting album cuts on street mixtapes and playing the songs on college radio.

In fact, MC Serch once claimed they found a garage filled with 60,000 bootleg Illmatic albums before the album’s release. That’s why Columbia rushed the Illmatic's release in ’94 and dropped their original plan of making it a larger, longer project.

5. Nas Wanted To Sample “Juicy Fruit” Before Biggie


Biggie’s best song “Juicy” was released in 1994 and built over a sample of Mtume’s “Juicy Fruit.” But it turns out Nas was also a big fan of “Juicy Fruit.” So much so that according to Nas, he asked producer L.E.S. to bring the record to the studio so he could sample it.

But L.E.S. didn’t have that song so he brought The Gap Band’s “Yearning for Your Love” and looped that up instead. Once Nas heard the beat, he forgot all about Mtume’s hit and opted to rhyme over the Gap Band sample and make “Life’s A bi*ch.” Both songs are great, but we can't help but wonder what could have been.



There are a couple more on the link.
I just posted the one's that had me like...:omfg:

Nashawn the one nas put on numerous records yet couldn't get himself hot? That Nashawn? The one Nas put on 5 albums yet k!lled his buzz beefing with dipset and letting Cam & Juelz Santana son him that Nashawn? WHo had enough dough to cop chains but not enough for a proper mixtape cover that Nashawn??

Quan who caught numerous cases and didnt sign with nas he signed with Atlantic And got put on the shelf? THAT Quan? Quan Didn't write any record other then the joint Take a moment and any other joint he collabed with Nas with? The Quan who got paid for his serveices and signed with just Blaze label & iLL Will yet STILL couldnt get himself hot? So now is on Koch records that Quan? Eat a d!ck ni99a. Next time when grwn folks talking shut the fu*k up.

How did he ostracize Az when i bought every album he every dropped EVER? Based off his collabo's with Nas? Az has had numerous deals & a great career, gtfoh. I bought all Cormega's sh*t as well. Matter of fact every song I heard Cormega on before The Realness or Nas disses were songs that NAS PUT HIM ON.

Jay-z must not have dropped that brown paper Bag for Nas. Maybe when jay 30 year old a.ss was d!ckriding Nas for verses he was having threesome's and living that player life. Maybe Nas don't fu*k with Brooklyn ni99az like that. Maybe Bring it on was a classic song without Nas. Sauce Money and Jaz-O bodied that track. Maybe Nas don't owe Hov sh*t but Ether ni99a.


That Africa sh*t was crazy Nas was kicking it in Miami cause he missed his flight. Sh*t happens, b Them aAfricans Savages out there. Better the promoter get "kidnapped" Which in reality was him chilling in a hotel til them African Ni99as got they guap. Then The GOAT. Nas clears that up hear. Said the business wasn't right.

All in all stop talking about sh*t you don't know about stupid azz ni99a.
