Man, I hope it's true, it has to be a sick beat.
I guess Diddy didn't wanted the beat as much as nas.
I even read on juize.fm( I'm dutch) that busta said that that beat was crazy.
Man it better be true, nas gotta dis someone with it,
but I don't think he needs a neptunes beat for dissin.
He better makes a ether again, if you asked me, against jay-.

It seems like so far the Neptunes haven't put out a wack beat. They seem to be puttin' out a consistent flow of steady rockin' beats. But 2 million dollars??? Hopefully NaS gets his money's worth! We'll see if it lives up to the hype...

The big audience will have to wait 2 month before they will be able to hear this pricy beat, but Busta Rhymes already said. "Ah sh*t, thats the craziest beat, I ever heard!
sorry to bring this back but damn, was this fake or did i miss the song?

Their saying that to build hype for the album. Neptunes can't charge 2 million for a beat. And NaS won't have a budget to pay 2 million for a beat.

At the height of the Neptunes success, they charged 250 G's for a beat (which is ASTRONOMICAL), but to artists like Jigga, they would charge MUCH less and get paid on the back end.
They're just building hype for the new album. ANYONE ON BOXDEN RIGHT NOW can get a fire beat off the 'Tunes for around 90k, so 2million is an out and out lie.

It's just to get folks talking and writing... which we are doing right now.

Their upper charge for a beat was actually 300 k..........though you'll be lucky to get a remix for 100k.........

Forget what their "Upper" charge was. They were "Asking" 250k. I know this because I know Chad. And that's when they were literally controlling the airwaves. With the success of Kanye the Neptunes took a dip (though not a dive), and everyone began using Kanye (Alicia Keys, Brandy etc) as a first choice hitmaker. In this era, people like Scott Storch & Lil' Jon came full into fruition. People literally didn't use the Neptunes as much.

Think back to The Black Album, you heard Jay-Z's 'Encore' much more than 'Change Clothes & Go'.

In short, Neptunes are not getting 250k per beat anymore. And NaS hasn't got enough of a budget to pay 2 million dollars for ONE track. No matter how dope it was. That would mean he would literally have one of the biggest album budgets in Hip-Hop history. Oh, and there are only about 3 artists that can outbid Diddy for a track... Eminem, 50 & Jigga, and even then it's a toss up.

This is all pre-album hype. And what was it Public Enemy said?
