Aug 19 - Nas did not pay $2 million for a beat
 

 
Tuesday, August 2, 2005


At the end of June there was a rumor that Nas paid $2 million for a Neptunes beat after a bidding war between himself and P Diddy.

Busta Rhymes, who had no part in the supposed deal, was apparently quoted as saying "Ah sh*t, thats the craziest beat, I ever heard! Those drums man, Those drums are fire! If Nas is gonna rap to this beat, its going to be over. This will be the biggest hit in the history of hiphop!"

StreetHop.com refrained from posting the news as we usually prefer to let false rumors die down on their own accord instead of giving attention to the people that start such lies. However it seems the rumor has been circulating the Internet again and we’ve been getting a ton of emails asking when the song would come out and if it was the 50 Cent diss.

Let us set the record straight once and for all. StreetHop.com spoke with Columbia when the rumor first hit, and Nas did not pay $2 million for a beat, the story is totally false. The Busta Rhymes quote is false; someone made it all up. So stop emailing in and posting your false Nas "scoops."

yeah i couldnt believe that sh*t from the start...nas is known for working with up and coming producers that work for less to get a name for themselves....does he even have 2 million to waste on one beat....his budget for an album would have been 10 million

I'm not trying to hate, but Nas doesn't seem like he's in a place in his career where he would just be pissing away money like that. Basically, I'm not surprised these rumors were just that.. rumors.

dude i seriously doubt it. i love how everyone suddenly is nas accountant. you dont know what he has and he gets money from concerts and other places as well. artists also get royaltys if their song is used. im sure if he thought a beat was worth it he could afford it.
