Nas and Jay-Z were once embroiled in a beef, with the former dubbing Jay “the rapping version of Sisqo”
“That was fucked up what they did to Nas,” 50 Cent said in an interview. “That’s fucked up. I know what you did to Nas, Jay.” He added, referring to the pair’s former beef: “This n***a still slapping him without everybody noticing.”
Nas and Jay-Z were involved in a feud in the ’90s when the former failed to show to the studio to record a verse for Jay’s ‘Reasonable Doubt‘. After trading subtle barbs, the ‘Blueprint’ star called out the fellow New York rapper at a live show, saying: “Ask Nas, he don’t want it with Hov.”
After that, Nas responded with ‘Stillmatic (Freestyle)’, in which he described Jay-Z as the “fake king of New York” and the “rapping version of Sisqo.”
“Why the fuck you do that man?” 50 Cent continued. “I’d be saying fuck that, do whatever I want to do, and they be looking at me like I’m grimy for doing that. This n***a be super quiet, he be doing some real grimy shit. He just got a different way for doing things.” Watch the interview above.
Meanwhile, Jay-Z appears on Drake‘s new album, ‘Scorpion’. He appears on the track ‘Talk Up’, on which he comments on the death of XXXTentacion and reflects on the death of Trayvon Martin, the Florida teenager killed by George Zimmerman in 2012.
