    Gems I found while making group & other interesting info

    I had this group in mind since January and I recently had the free time to make it...During that time, I found out:

    Gems:

    Ron Artest ft Nas & Xin Xin "who are you"
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LP0tM5xref8

    Da BackWudz - "You're Gonna Love Me Remix" (Ft Nas & Slim Thug) has the same verse as "Premo Shit" from Nas & Statik Selektah – The Prophecy Vol 2 (Mixtape)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iw-U_dd5D_M


    Estelle "Fall In Love" ft. Nas...going at Kelis?
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XeqKm66Ge8c

    I didn't have the track Anybody Test (UNRELEASED)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yvzdhSAbLFI


    Interesting Info:

    The rumored Nas track listing "NASDAQ Dow Jones Album" after HHID before Nas decided to drop "untitled" has a grain of truth because "Talk of NY" and "Legendary" exists...This really puts a sequel on the "Street's Disciple" album because he already did Unauthorized Biography of Rakim and Sekou Story....Fun fact: Scarlett that did 2 tracks on "Street's Disciple" was actually NaS with his voice altered!!...After I heard Scarlett for the first time I opened "Street's Disciple," I was like, who was this chick? she's actually good! Why doesn't she have a wiki page? and did Nas ghostwrite for her?..lol and I guess "Moon" is short for honeymoon, which would have been a sequel to "getting married" but we know how that turned out...yeah. Didn't know that Nas was going to do a track about Hallie Selassie but instead did a track about Louis Farrakhan... remember when Nas said on his "book of rhymes" track that Gandhi was a fool? yeah, on "revolutionary warfare," Nas cleared it up that he didn't mean it

    01. Wake Up New York (Intro)
    02. Bullet X
    03. What's Good NY
    04. We Were Gangstas (featuring Scarface)
    05. Mexico
    06. QB Savages (featuring Bravehearts)
    07. Polo and Guess (featuring Jay-Z)
    08. Unauthorized Biography of KRS-ONE
    09. The n@sty One
    10. Seed of Sekou
    11. Legendary
    12. Rebel to America
    13. Hallie Selassie
    14. Moon (featuring Kelis)
    15. Talk of NY - (bonus track)

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=myU2Fu0_C3o
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-tz0mZ1Mvao

    IMO, The NaS symbol from "It Was Written" looked the best because it wasn't bolded like the ones after

    I found out J-love did part 6 and 7 of the Nas' Finest Mixtapes

    LeToya Luckett - "She Don't" (Remix) ft Nas has the same verse as "Association" from The Nigger Tape w/ DJ Green Lantern
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CCrM0pHz7YU
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tGMZluMnKtY

    Nas recycled his verse from "Breathe" to start out his verse on Raekwon's "Rich and Black" the same way Nas used his first verse from Deja Vu for Raekwon's "Verbal Intercourse"
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f5evzMox6_U
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EuyB7wS3dMs
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e-7ZtDoyieU
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JoMPxSi9iUM

    Nas's verse on Westside Story beat (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0RGM6TsfMn0) started out with his verse from Grand Finale w/Lil' Jon, T.I., Bun B & Ice Cube
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IiRIkFNKZ2s

    Some Mixtapes have the same name...I may have another pre-matic mixtape than the one with Premier and Nas..and some of the better mixtapes doesn't even have a cover (DJs Beyondrest: You can hate us now)

    Strictly for "hardcore" Nas Fans
    Without Further ado...

    If you didn't catch it, Nas is doing a special on ESPN so check your local listings for the rerun. If you are from another country, wait til someone posts the documentary on youtube just like they uploaded the Fab Five. Why is this relevant?

    Check out Nas sporting a Michigan hat and C-Webb produced "Blunt Ashes" and "Surviving The Times." Nas mentioned Webber on his Detroit 98 FM Freestyle.

    "Rapper Nas (Nasir Jones) Wins Emmy For ESPN Documentary Survival 1"
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ove-jlEx7fE

    "E:60 Amputee Soccer Roundtable with Nas"
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=s_gzJ8NuOqc&NR

    You're Da Man (Uncut Version)
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j0MAp-p_mc8
    The Unreleased Stanza is something else!
    Here's a full article about it to get you into perspective http://escobartheory.blogspot.com/2006/04/sugarman.html

    "At church on my hand was a preacher's blood
    Swallow dirt from a graveyard in need of love
    I vomit blunt residue
    I want revenue
    Dreaming
    And pump lead at you
    Devils trying to take my freedom
    It drove me crazy the day I drank my own urine
    My own semen
    With a .9 to my brain
    but wait a sec, give me time to explain..." [second verse]

    Live at the Barbecue (harry mix) + Original Unreleased Stanza
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Xjz7uJjgKyE
    Nas basically re-recited his verse from Live At the Barbecue but added his unreleased stanza with his "1991 vocals"

    "Rap radioactive
    Attractive, hyperactive
    I drop bombs, my rhymes are massive
    I work fantastic, realistic
    My raps are drastic, not simplistic"

    In case you didn't already know: For Will Smith, Nas co-wrote "Get Jiggy Wit It," "Yes Yes Y'All," "Chasing Forever," "Just Cruisin'" off the "Men In Black" soundtrack. "women used to tease me / give it to me now nice and easy / since I moved up like George and Weezy." "Miami" follows the same template of "Jiggy," with a couple double rhymes and a bizarre shoutout to Sly Stallone being especially Nas-like, so maybe it counts as as ghostwriting as well. Full article: http://escobartheory.blogspot.com/2006/06/for-right-price.html

    ...you didn't think I was going to end it like that, right?
    Here's some optional 'homework'

    Tracks & Audio Files Still in The Hunt:
    citation: http://escobartheory.blogspot.com/2006/08/in-vaults.html
    I Couldn't find the following tracks...maybe one of you Internet-savvy-google-boolean-search-engine-experts could help me out
    Don't worry, according to many sources and accounts, there quite a bit of Nas material STILL HEAVILY guarded behind vaults. These just skim the surface:

    Livin' the Life (Studio Version) (Pre-1994)
    ...we got the freestyle version over 'young black and gifted,' 'nobody beats the biz,' 'you gots to chill' beats: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AkzhJznONHQ ...of course, there's times when Nas just recited what's on the album for his freestyle promotions but there's quite of bit of Nas verses that only exists as freestyles...and then when Nas caught wreck on the air, that was the end of the joint and we couldn't hear the whole verse, but then Nas started recording his freestyles as legit studio tracks around 2004, most notably with "Foul Breeze"

    I Got Game (1994)
    ...unreleased Nas from Illmatic era

    Fahrenheit (1994)
    ...confirmed by DJ Low Key

    Verbal Intercourse Pt 2 (1995)
    ...Nas dropped 4 verses before choosing "through the lights camera glamour glitters and gold" verse as the final...RZA might have recorded the other Nas' verses on a separate beat - confirmed by Chef a.k.a. Raekwon

    It Was A Lady Cop Sucking A Thug’s Dick, It Was Some Thug Shit, Some Bug Shit (1996)
    ...samples Brethren's Inside Love immortalized by A Tribe Called Quest on "Electric Relaxation." - confirmed by L.E.S.

    ? Untitled ft. Method Man and D'Angelo (1996)
    ...Escobar Season Begins and distributed it to media outlets and mixtapes. Apparently, Method Man never showed up and Nature ended on the making of "Shootouts"...the alternate verse of shootouts was later released

    Detroit's 98 FM Freestyle (1996-7)
    ...The transcribed verse is here, but no audio

    "Look at these clowns that be coming at me
    Pac showed 'em how it was done in Makaveli
    Exactly . . .
    who wanna attack me?
    When y'all done with the dumb ish, we could break bread
    I show you young black brothers how to get ahead
    You think I'm not Mr. Entrepreneur
    But every time I step out a car, it's from a Bentley door
    And that's been happening since '94
    And y'all don't see me talking crack and raw
    I hang with gangstas, the kind you never seen before
    Or on Lear jets with Webber, no discussions of rap
    We talk about American lives that were lost in Iraq
    Talk about American lives that were lost in the hood
    Al Green ballads and how shit'd never be like it was
    Pop bottles for my brothers in prison
    Pop bottles for my girls who . . ."

    ..."According to a legendary story, Nas was once such a potent freestyler that after spitting for some time in the company of Biggie, Biggie just had to shrug and say, "there's no way I can follow that." Blunted by time though, nowadays you'd hardly suspect that was ever true of Nas. As an example, during a recent visit to Detroit's 98 FM, the rapper quickly stumbled on a pre-written verse. Now, a dope freestyler hardly ever equals a dope overall rapper, but it would still be nice to see signs of what once had B.I.G. so shook."

    On the Ave (?) (Prod. Large Professor)
    ...confirmed by Large Professor

    The Curse (full track) (1999)
    ...the snippet exists...The second verse of the alleged full track was redone on a Killah Priest record "The Saints"

    Ghetto Prisoners Pete Rock remix (1999)

    Ether (Uncut version) (2001)
    ..."I killed him, even when I scaled it back" - lost stanza regarding the conflict between Jay-Z, Big Pun, and a certain Cristal Bottle...now that I think of it, the last verse on Ether did end quite abruptly

    You Can't Stop Me (Kanye West produced) (2001)
    ...never made it to Stillmatic, because Kanye sided with Jay-Z...btw, Kanye did a remix to k-i-s-s-i-n-g (1999), which exists - but sucks...

    Kids Have All the Fun (2000-01)

    The General Pete Rock remix (2001)

    Nas & Prodigy - Roc Them 2 Sleep (Jay-Z Diss) (2001-2)

    From Alternate tracklisting of God's Son:

    Fuck Hot (2002)

    ? Untitled (Produced by Psycho Les of the Beatnuts) (2002)

    Crabs In The Barrel (2002)
    ...a.k.a. Doo Rags? It's in the lyrics

    Grimey Ways ft Nashawn (2002)
    ..confirmed by Nashawn

    From Alternate tracklisting of Street's Disciple:

    I Am Somebody ft Diddy (2004) - confirmed by pictures w/ diddy during the making of the double LP

    Get Up (2004)

    Titillating (2004)

    sun factor (2004)

    Bachelor Party (2004)

    Message for the boys (2004)

    If the world was mine (2004)

    The Fear (2004)
    ...a.k.a. "The Fear of Mandango?" a.k.a. "The Fear of The Black Man's Dick?" (exists)

    the household roach (original) (2004-6)
    ...Confirmed to Be "Project Roach" (feat. The Last Poets) (2008)

    play on playa (original version) (2004)
    ...Later to feature Snoop Dogg in 2006

    Bomb First - Nas/Cassidy collabo (2005)
    ...didn't make it on Cassidy's album, instead "Can't Fade Me" exists

    From Hip Hop Is Dead Alternative tracklisting:

    There was going to be a track called "war" on back to back albums (HHID & SD)...I think it got moved to DJ Clue's The Professional Pt 3

    New York Stomp (Prod. Salaam Remi)
    ...stadium-like strings and drums. With Nas striking a bit venomous, apparently the stadium setting takes on an especially Roman coliseum feel. - FADER

    The other Jay-Nas Collabos
    According to XXL, Jay-Z and Nas "knocked out three songs in one night, and one is making HHID"

    Death Anniversary (w/ unreleased 3rd verse) (2005)
    ...http://img396.imageshack.us/img396/5933/da9gx.jpg
    Nas is not a 2-verse rapper...He's definitely setting up a 3rd verse that's even more profound

    ? Untitled (produced by Pharrell & the Neptunes)
    ...Nas bought this beat for a cool $2 million...maybe it was for Kelis?

    ? untitled (2006)
    ..."I'm almost done [working] on a Queens anthem with another big Queens dude." - XXL...there's too many Queens artists to know who it is

    White Man's Paper ft Damian Marley (2006) (a.k.a. War?)
    ..."the politics of warfare" w/ some new "African Dude" - Rolling Stone
    I was surprised that this didn't get released in 2008 along with the other controversial "reverse/anti racism" tracks...or in 2010, when his side kick was Damien Marley...but then, I remembered a certain black preacher had a famous speech paraphrased to along the lines of "do not blame the white man for your current situations and rise up out of it"...so Nas probably took that into consideration and instead of blaming the White man, he instead uplifted his own race by talking about black pride on the "Distant Relatives" album...Props, but true Nas fans still want the track!

    Apparently, some of the lyrics was transcribed but the audio is no where to be found about "White Man's Paper" - whether it's about the news'paper'/media or money

    "I'm a white man's paper
    brown by nature
    green with envy
    down to the red veins
    within me
    built on blood stains
    my frame
    is wood grain
    wit traces of cocaine
    from rollin' with coke fiends
    the game
    changed
    my name
    to Cream like Alcinder
    dreams paint the pictures
    of places where I'll send ya,"

    The story behind the 50 Beef
    http://escobartheory.blogspot.com/2006/09/storm.html

    The reason for Nas' album covers
    http://escobartheory.blogspot.com/2006/07/deep-covers.html
    From a boy (illmatic) to a kid (it was written) to a pharaoh (I am..) to a prophet (nastradamus) w/ the bridge in the background as influence
    Then, in the post 9/11 NY (stillmatic), there is a flood in the background and the pigeon symbolizes that Nas is Noah since he has to send the pigeon out to find land (when the flood is over)...for God's son, there is the flood in the background and Nas is bare, without the accessories such as the jewelery and clothing...there are 2 pigeons in Nas' hands for the back cover of God's Son. Street's Disciple's full scale picture has 12 Nas' with Nas as King...it gets pretty complicated with the constellations so I suggest you read it...Nas probably read The Da Vinci Code cuz the movie didn't come out yet.

    whoa


    play this at the 4-minute mark
    damn, didn't know Nas and 2Pac squashed their beef at NY central park 2 days before 'Pac got shot (the 2nd time) - that dude Got Goals Accomplished before he died

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQklvVhRAYE
    @1:14, @4:03
    there WAS a recording of Pac "when I seen this nigga Nas, I swear to god, 'I was like yo, wassup Nas, yo this east coast-west coast thang, yo it's not about you - don't get caught up in it I swear to god yo, we got nothing but love for you'" and the recording is off the 2Pac Duets mixtape...after Biggie Duets dropped. another recording on it was of Nas "I can remember Howard-Homecoming, runnin into 2Pac - handing him a bottle of hennessey and him turning it upside down and that magic has never left my mind - so for me to make a song called 'i gave you power' about me being a gun and then 2Pac put out 'me and my girlfriend' - that was amazing to me. I saw my influence on them because they influenced me - Greatly!"

    ...and I didn't know Nas was supposed to be on Tha Dogg Pound's "Dogg Food" album before Suge intervened and started the east-west 'beef'

    Analyze This
    If you ask someone about the Black Republican Nas / Jay-Z track, they might tell you that's not really the first collaboration between the two rappers; next, they would point to something called Analyze This. However, what they're referring to is actually a blend. The story goes that NBA center Shaquille O'Neal was assembling material for his 1996 release Can't Stop The Reign. He then brought in the Trackmasters who eventually enlisted their comrade Nas to lay down some vocals. Nas obliged, spit an Esco-inspired verse but then ran into some issues. Either there were money holdups or personality disagreements, whatever, but he soon dropped out, and Jay-Z, coming off the release of Reasonable Doubt, was brought in as a replacement. Subsequently, it was only years later, with Shaq completely edited out but Lord Tariq, also on the original, still there, that Nas and Jay-Z's raps were paired together.

    Nas is going to the Rock the Bells Concert '11


    New website coming up:

    I miss the old website Nas had on Columbia. You know? The last theme was his Street's Disciple joint where you see all 12 Disciples and 1 king, but they're all Nas?

    I remember back when I had the Street's Disciple's CD (before it got scratched), you could put it in your computer and it had a .dat file which loaded its own automatic Nas-themed mp3 player...the theme was sick but it didn't have any other cool functions other than to link you to the Columbia website Nas had.

    FOR THE FULL UPDATE, GO HERE
    The abridged version:

    New members, welcome. People who joined the group since day one, hope you weren't overwhelmed by my last group update

    R.I.P. Gil Scott-Heron, known as 'The Godfather of Rap.' You can read about the man and his tributes. Nas and Mos Def also did his tribute to the artist: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nMv5CG-rEss

    Rumors: Firm Album Vol 2, AZ says it could happen and a Mobb Deep-Nas album...

    2008
    Color (prod Khalil) (unreleased)
    snippet: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UCDSo2-pgyo

    Nas is going to perform Illmatic at the Rock the Bells Concert '11
    http://www.rockthebells.net/
    Hopefully, Nas doesn't forget any of his complex lines on stage like he's notoriously known for doing...

    Nas' 10th album title:

    My opinion: either this is referring to that line: “I like to celebrate/, why?/ - ‘cause I can vision collages and images of my life/with no regrets to hate/” or Nas needs to get reminded of that hunger, that plight to make his rhymes tighter and his lines slicker...who knows? Nas may pull a Deja Vu on us

    Somehow, I think that album title is not going to fly because listen to his interview in 2008
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sBQDe2BNsso
    @0:48 "I felt like Life is Good and everything is good, but every time everything is too good, nahmean? it wakes you up, something wakes you up and you get reminded of the ugliness out here, man"

    Nas talks about importance of Lost Tapes 2
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3avfeAudB2k

    Lost tapes as a Deluxe along with 10th album?

    That Nas-Common collabo snippet:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UvYCuPyh9Vg
    according to Common's verse, he may be referring to the personification 'Hip Hop'.

    There are conflicting stories (i.e. snoop switching up his story) regarding whether or not Nas and 2Pac squashed their beef at NY central park 2 days before 'Pac got shot (the 2nd time) but 2Pac Got Goals Accomplished before he died
    Outlaws confirmed the story at the 4-minute mark: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eepmiMk_f2o

    More Evidence:
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eQklvVhRAYE
    @1:14 and @4:03: there WAS a recording of Pac "when I seen this nigga Nas, I swear to god, 'I was like yo, wassup Nas, yo this east coast-west coast thang, yo it's not about you - don't get caught up in it I swear to god yo, we got nothing but love for you'" and the recording is off the 2Pac Duets mixtape...after Biggie Duets dropped. another recording on it was of Nas "I can remember Howard-Homecoming, runnin into 2Pac - handing him a bottle of hennessey and him turning it upside down and that magic has never left my mind - so for me to make a song called 'i gave you power' about me being a gun and then 2Pac put out 'me and my girlfriend' - that was amazing to me. I saw my influence on them because they influenced me - Greatly!"

    Analyze This (1999) Nas ft. Jay-Z & Lord Tariq
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zHEcd80ZxvM
    If you ask someone about the Black Republican Nas / Jay-Z track, they might tell you that's not really the first collaboration between the two rappers; next, they would point to something called Analyze This. However, what they're referring to is actually a blend. The story goes that NBA center Shaquille O'Neal was assembling material for his 1996 release Can't Stop The Reign. He then brought in the Trackmasters who eventually enlisted their comrade Nas to lay down some vocals. Nas obliged, spit an Esco-inspired verse but then ran into some issues. Either there were money holdups or personality disagreements, whatever, but he soon dropped out, and Jay-Z, coming off the release of Reasonable Doubt, was brought in as a replacement. Subsequently, it was only years later, with Shaq completely edited out but Lord Tariq, also on the original, still there, that Nas and Jay-Z's raps were paired together.

    15th anniversary of illmatic
    http://www.xxlmag.com/features/2009/03/feature-nas-the-genesis/

    He kept changing on the world since barbecue. From Illmatic to last year’s controversial Untitled LP, Nas has constantly evolved, going from a wide-eyed project youth to hip-hop’s chief political pundit. Despite all the growth, it is the Queensbridge Housing Projects native’s debut that remains his most revered work to date. In fact, there are only a handful of hip-hop albums that fans speak of in the same sentence (Jay-Z’s Reasonable Doubt and Dr. Dre’s The Chronic to name a few). The production was stellar, with contributions from Large Professor, DJ Premier and Pete Rock, but what was even more impressive was the wordplay exhibited by the then-20-year-old MC. Memorable lines like “I never sleep ‘cause sleep is the cousin of death” from “N.Y. State of Mind” or “Nas is like the Afro-centric Asian, half-Man, half-amazing” from “It Ain’t Hard to Tell” proved that the young rapper was wise beyond his years.

    Fast forward, April 19, 2009 will mark the 15-year anniversary of Illmatic’s release. To celebrate Nas sat down with XXLMag.com to talk about his rookie season and the creation of a true hip-hop classic.

    XXLMag.com: First off what does the word “Illmatic” mean? Can you break that down?

    Nas: Illmatic is supreme ill. It’s as ill as ill gets. That shit is a science of everything ill.

    XXL: So what was the climate like in rap when you were coming into the game? Do you remember?

    Nas: It was a lot of characters, the superstars in rap were super, super stars and it didn’t leave room for a new generation. How were we gonna come after the superstars like Heavy D and Salt ‘N Pepa, Run-D.M.C., Rakim, KRS, Cool J? They were bigger than life. Just the average dude on the block, that wasn’t really the superstar guy, it didn’t look like it was an easy game to get into. We loved the whole culture and now [it was time to] make room for the new. From our perspective, we were lookin’ at the superstars as kinda of corny when compared to what we had to go through everyday on the block. We looked at it like, “Man this is what’s real, lets tell this story.”

    XXL: You lost your rhyme book on the way to record “Life’s a Bitch” right? How did that affect you?

    Nas: Yeah I lost a couple of ‘em [that day]. One day I was bored and I wrote, “If you find this send to…” and I wrote my address because I lived in the projects back then and I wrote down that there would be a reward… But by the time the album was done the guy called me and he didn’t want a reward and he sent it back to me and I thanked the man and it was all good. I realized the stuff that I had came up with for the album was a little more developed, more than the stuff I had written down. The stuff I had written down was kinda dated and kinda old.

    XXL: AZ has gone on record to say that at the time he didn’t think his “Life’s A Bitch” verse was up to par and you had to convince him that it was dope. Do you remember that?

    Nas: Yeah he went through, I don’t know if he remembers, but he had spit a lot of shit for me and a lot of A’s shit [was] rapid fire shit. A lot of his shit was hyped… I remember I was just telling him to lay back a little bit with it. Then he spit a few joints for me all crazy. When he spit that one, that one fit what I wanted to fit on the album, what Illmatic was about. That one fit perfect. It had to be something that fit, that one was the perfect verse.

    XXL: It was you who originally laid the hook for “The World Is Yours,” so why did Pete Rock end up on the final version?

    Nas: Pete was more experienced in the booth, laying vocals and producing vocals, so mines weren’t up to par. He knew exactly how to do it and get it sounding right panning them through the speakers and everything… I give that to Pete Rock, you gotta credit him with that, he brought the track that brought it all to life.

    XXL: Large Professor ushered you in the game, what was the exact role that he played in your career early on?

    Nas: Yeah I remember I told him to executive produce it because he’s the guy who put me on and put me on the Breaking Atoms album. He was around all the big dogs and he still put me on that shit. He produced my vocals, he’s the one that taught me how to stand with the mic, how not to say my words, how not to pop too much in the mic. Basically he was the first person to ever produce me and he kinda had a sound for me so I couldn’t think of working with anybody else.

    XXL: How’d you come up with “One Love” and the whole concept of it being a letter to your man in prison?

    Nas: It represented just that nobody was doing nothin’ like that. I didn’t want to do records the way that everybody was doing records. I wasn’t like, “Yo this record is gonna tear the club up, BDS gonna be crazy on that one.” No it was like “Let’s go the opposite way.” Let’s sing this song for the men locked up, for the kids, for the single parents who was experiencing their son being locked up; girlfriends having their boyfriends locked up, brothers having their brothers locked up. A part of the community was missin’ when those guys would go away so this is how I was affected. It’s like “Yo that’s my homeboy who was just there and now he’s on the other side of the wall and we both fighting still together in the struggle.” We gotta keep that love, you not dead man, you still here, keep it one love, keep it 100.

    XXL: When you first shouted out Cormega on that record, did you ever think he would come out and be accepted as a rapper?

    Nas: That was just my man and I didn’t see it as come out and be known. There was a side of me that knew I was gonna change the game, but I didn’t know how many people would respect it. I just knew that the street niggas would, so that meant everything to me. So that meant if people would hear him in the streets and fuck with him, then that meant everything. It was just like, I didn’t think that far when I came to writing it, nobody knew who I was at that time, so it was just shouting out my dude.

    XXL: You guys have had your problems, where do you and Mega stand now?

    Nas: I’ll tell you man. I don’t have any regrets in life, but I just hate that me and him had a disgruntled situation, I hate that because we go back. I never liked it, I never liked it. It’s something that I blank out of my mind, it’s something that didn’t even happen really to me, that’s how I blank a lot of shit out. It was just stupid… When you get older you realize how many things were dumb, how many things don’t really hold no weight today. When we were young and we handled it like as if we didn’t see the rap world. It just went the wrong route and I got nothing but love for him, man. In reality that’s like, I see him as a part of family, like a distant cousin at this point.

    XXL: You put Queensbridge back on hip-hop’s map after MC Shan took that loss to BDP. Were you nervous putting your hood on your back like that?

    Nas: The whole thing was it had to be real, because everything else was so lights, cameras, action, gloss. I had to stand out and be the guy who had the projects behind me. Really the record had to represent everything Nasir Jones is about from beginning to end, from my album cover to my videos. My record company had to beg me to stop filmin’ music videos in the projects. No mater what the song was about I had ‘em out there. That’s what it was all about for me, being that kid from the projects, being a poster child for that, that didn’t exist back then.

    XXL: Illmatic was so influential to the culture, when it was all said and done did you think it would resonate the way it did? We’re talking about 15 years.

    Nas: Hell yeah. The shit is that serious. When you get a chance to put your words out there it’s that serious. I respected my audience like how I felt that other artists out before me was respecting me. I respect the audience to this day, I respect their intelligence so it’s important that they know that and that’s why I put that kinda work in.-Rob Markman

    Producer of Ether recollects:
    http://allhiphop.com/stories/features/archive/2009/01/28/20816814.aspx

    "I was still an underground producer at that time. So any way to get to artists, I had to get to artists. I actually went through his travel agent, and his travel agent actually looked out and handed him a CD with my music on there. My manager at the time, his name is Fuzz, he knew her, they were friends and kinds she looked out. She passed him the CD.

    I didn't know what he was doing with it. Actually, he held it for a couple of months, like three or four months. Then that month December 2000, he told me to come to the studio and listen to what he had did to the track. When he played the track, my mouth just dropped like, ‘Wow.’ I was thinking that being that I was a part of the record that I wasn't going to be able to work with no other artist in the game because that was Jay-Z and he was on fire at the moment.

    Interview before Nas' Ninth dropped
    http://www.okayplayer.com/interviews/nas-unfiltered-untitled-undeterred-200807156071.html

    "When I was doing the album, I knew there was certain concepts I had to do," Nas explained. "There were obvious concepts, so many things to touch on, on an album that's supposed to be the N----- album. 'Fried Chicken' was just a no-brainer. So I did the first verse and had it. I knew everybody was busy. I couldn't think of anyone to get on it. I had hit up Common and I hit a few people. Everybody was trying to get back, and I had to turn it in, like, yesterday. Then it just dropped on me — boom! Who's got the science? Who knows all the science on all this sh--? The Godfather, Busta Rhymes. It was just perfect. I hit him [and] said, 'Please turn it around.' He was overseas. He knocked that sh-- out overseas, sent it to me. Done."

    OKP: What's up with the verse from the project aimed at 50?

    Nas: I thought I shot that over everybody's heads, I didn't think they'd get anything that I said, cause I was using old styles on him like stuff from the Five Percent Nation, and I didn't think people would get it. It was just acknowledging 50's alleged retirement (after losing the first week's sales battle to Kanye) --I've had this for a while. Talking about it's really like.... he was an understudy or apprentice of mine, a friend of mine before. I haven't been able to see him lately. I'd love to talk to him. It's just me saying my piece. It wasn't like I was saying me and him should battle right now. It was just writing, it came in my writing. I didn't even plan on this now.

    OKP: I was just wondering why you didn't hit 50 with a three-verse special and just go ahead and Ether that dude?

    Nas: I think he's got to put out more than just 3 albums. They've got to put out a body of work--survival. [It takes going through] hard times, and grinding and then coming back on top for somebody to really put it down. It's too early, they're still freshmen, you know? So they've got to put out a lot more work out before that happens.

    My best friend Will and I loved Fila. It represented prestige and everything that was cool to us. When Will passed, we buried him in a black Fila sweat suit, so doing a deal with them has a lot of significance for me.

    Nas To Release "Untitled" New Def Jam Album On July 15th
    http://www.universalmusic.com/artist-news/nas-to-release-untitled-new-def-jam-album-on-july-15th

    (June 10, 2008 – New York, NY) Surrounded by controversy at every stage of his long and influential career as the conscience – and often most severe critic – of hip-hop, Def Jam Recordings artist Nas has returned to the headlines, declaring that his new 9th album, arriving in stores July 15th, will be untitled. The untitled new album follows-up Nas’ Def Jam debut, the Grammy nominated Hip-Hop Is Dead, which entered the Soundscan chart at #1 in December 2006, on first week sales of more than 350,000 copies.

    “It’s important to me that this album gets to the fans,” Nas said of his newest project. “It’s been a long time coming. I want my fans to know that creatively and lyrically, they can expect the same content and the same messages. It’s that important. The streets have been waiting for this for a long time. The people will always know what the real title of this album is and what to call it.”

    In advance of the untitled new album, which will be issued on the Def Jam/Jones Experience imprint, the first official single will be “Hero,” produced by Polow Da Don.

    Over the past few weeks, two tracks from the album have been leaked: “Black President” (produced by DJ Green Lantern) and the album’s closing track “N.I.G.G.E.R. (The Slave and The Master)” (produced by DJ Toomp), containing the provocative lyric, “They say we N-I-double-G-E-R/ We are, much more/ But still we choose to ignore the obvious/ Man, this history don’t acknowledge us/ We were scholars way before colleges…”

    One of the albums highlights is “Fried Chicken” featuring Busta Rhymes, produced by the Grammy winner for Producer Of The Year, Mark Ronson. “Fried Chicken,” finds Nas and Busta in top form, mixing elaborate metaphors over a decidedly throwback Ronson track. “When I was young, sitting in my room hammering out beats on my MPC, Nas was one of those truly legendary artists that you daydream, ‘One day, I’ll get to do a track for…,’” says Ronson. “We finally met Grammy night in LA, and he said he wanted some stuff from me for the album. I started thinking to myself, as a Nas fan, ‘What kind of beats would I love to hear him over?’ That’s how the Dapkings and I came up with the track for ‘Fried Chicken’, and I reckon it sounds like a stone cold classic.”

    The untitled new album will also include collaborations with producers Stic.Man from Dead Prez, Jay Electronica, Stargate, DJ Toomp, Cool & Dre, and others.

    Pete rock got a call from Nas
    http://allhiphop.com/stories/news/archive/2009/05/12/21550748.aspx

    "I got a call from [Nas] one day. I was very excited when I saw that he called. I called him back and we conversed a bit, through the text, got him on the phone and we kicked it. I sent music to him. And I'll just continue to send him music, you know? Whatever he likes, he'll probably put to the side. But, I'm real excited about working with him." "I got a call from [Nas] one day. I was very excited when i Saw That He Called. I Called Him Back And We conversed a bit, Through the text, got HIM On The Phone And We kicked it. I feel music To Him. And I'll just continue to send HIM music, you know? Whatever he likes, He'll Probably put to the Side. But, I'm real excited about Working with HIM. "

    RZA talks about Nas
    http://allhiphop.com/stories/reviewsmusic/archive/2009/01/22/20803725.aspx

    RZA: The early Nas, the first three albums of Nas yo, nahmean. I don’t think too many solo MCs will ever surpass the creativity, ideas and individualization that he put inside his lyrics and songs. Two of the best rhymes I thought written was when he wrote the song “One Love” to his man in jail. You look at Eminem’s “Stan,” that’s “One Love.” That was the inspiration of a man sitting here writing a letter to his man in jail.

    Then you take a look at him writing his song [about the gun] “I Gave You Power”; describing the tech feeling this way, the rusty gun…taking the individualization of a gun describing. The only other MC doing that was the GZA where he took on the labels and made one meaning a whole 'nother meaning.

    "I'm proud of myself for doing it and taking it on. It looks like Black History Month [February] is gonna be the month to drop the album. If not, it comes when it comes. But it'll be here soon — soon like right-around-the-corner soon. It's not gonna be a waiting-for-a-long-time type thing. I'm blessed to be in this state of mind I'm in to do this music. ... I love what this whole thing is all about. I'm working with so many people. It is a lot of people I'm working with: Puff, Jermaine [Dupri], some underground cats. Some surprises."

    Nas joins charity water
    http://still-nas.blogspot.com/2008/10/nas-rejoint-charity-water.html

    "charity: water drill wells and fund water projects in the developing world, and 100 percent of their donations go to the cause. That is the cause and that is what has moved Nobody to join with a team of creative individuals to be a part of this project and donate their time and profits. Nas supported the project and believed in it. The whole project is about the charity. We think Nas is an amazing artist and we are privileged that he would support the project."

    Nas Talks Biggie & Pac Beef
    http://www.hiphopdx.com/index/news/id.6786/title.nas-talks-biggie-pac-beef-tiger-woods-being-a-coon-and-more

    "Somebody told me that (one) about me getting dropped. That sounds funny, though. I guess that just stays a rumor. But I enjoy those rumors too, because that means there’s fear."

    "Tiger Woods standing up for this white lady who said something about him being lynched is a coon move to me,” Nas explains. "God bless the brother. I like to see him doing his thing, but that’s a flaw in his character. That’s an issue I would have with Tiger Woods; not who he is married to."

    "On a song I did on my second album, Tupac thought it was about him, but it was really towards Biggie. From the first lines all the way to, 'One life, one love, there can only be one king.' That was specifically going in that direction. The whole fucking song, really. Tupac was not even on my radar for going at him."/Your reign on the top was short like leprechauns

    Nas recollects election night
    http://www.nme.com/news/nas/40853
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FFD9ldViAVE
    "I'm currently on tour in Europe with Nas and we were at dinner last night talking about how crazy it is that we're not in the states on Election Day," Green Lantern told MTV. "Someone quoted his verse from 'Black President' when he said 'What's the black prez thinkin' on Election Night?' And Nas said, 'Set up the mic — I'm gonna speak on that.' And the result is 'Election Night.'"

    Nas talks about Jay Electronica
    http://www.hiphopdx.com/index/news/id.6651/title.nas-big-ups-jay-electronica


    What makes Jay Electronica so special?
    Nas : “He does him man. I thought that when you get into something you get into it because you want to represent and do it to the fullest, regardless if you getting the credit or not. I hear people that think they not getting the respect they think they deserve, complaining to people because they not on top. Or blamin’ record companies or blamin’ other rappers they record with. And you know that happens all the time but it’s rare that you see someone that’s not asking for a handout, that’s not looking for a lookout. Someone who came into the business like how I came. I didn’t come in with a platinum, multi-platinum act in the middle of the rap world when it was on top. I had a verse in ‘91 with a fairly underground rap group. And it created my buzz and I had to climb on my own. I would not have accepted me coming into the business any other way. You know? And today people get superstars to endorse them and it got a lot easier and they still complainin’. Somebody like Jay Electronica got their awareness of the same shit, superstars. He’s onto his own thing and that is everything to him. It doesn’t matter if people pay attention today. It doesn’t matter when they get it, but they going to get it.”

    And musically?
    Nas : “He got that shit where, you know, shit just sound like music. And you can hear what he’s saying and when he gets into it he goes all the way into it. He knows there’s an audience out there that can hear what he’s saying and that’s what he’s been with me in the studio, like fuck that, they going to know what you mean, they going to know what you saying.”

    Nas's dream album w/ dr dre and premier
    http://entertainment.stv.tv/showbiz/21212-nas-dre-dream/

    "I want to do an all-Dr. Dre album. A whole thing with Dre and a whole thing with Premier, and drop 'em on the same day. That's the real thing. All right, I said it. That's what I really wanna do.

    "I'm doing my dream. If you could, wouldn't you do it? What else would you do? Every time I do something, it's, 'Oh, he's doing it because this and that.' Since my first album, everybody has an explanation of why. What am I supposed to be doing here? So I wanna drop the Dre album and the Premier album on the same day. That's what I'm thinking."

    DJ Premier speaks on untitled
    http://still-nas.blogspot.com/2008/03/dj-premier-ne-veut-pas-tre-du.html

    "I don't know why they're making a big deal. When I was coming up my parents had albums like 'That n*gger's Crazy' (Richard Pryor), Sly and the Family Stone had 'Don't Call Me n*gger, Whitey'. No one made a big deal about that."

    "I just hope it's a banging album, if you're going to use that title. If it was up to me to do an album called n*gger, believe me it's gonna sound just like the title, beats-wise, lyric-wise, content-wise-everything. As long as its banging I'm gonna applaud him. If it sounds wack, I'm going to be disappointed and diss him like anything else because I have that right as a fan. I'm a fan of Nas so let's hope he bangs it out."

    "He just hit me with the track. I was like, 'Oh, that's what's up.' The record was Game's record, so he's like, 'Me, you, I'm going to see Chris Brown. Nas, we gon' make this movie, boom, boom, boom.' It was his record. I guess [it was going to be on] Game's album. It was gonna come out now, but he pushed his sh-- back, so he let me have his sh--. He's a smart n---a like that. I was like, 'What you doing with this record?' He gave it to me. He's got so many bangers [on his album], I guess." "Letter to the King" was supposed to be on Nas' album and "We Make the World Go Round" was supposed to be on Game's album - they swapped tracks.

    "Of course, I wouldn’t even think twice about doing that…hell yeah! I think the album would be crazy, lyrics would be sick, and Hip-Hop would love it. It’s just making that business happen, that’s the part that gets funky. I ain’t never turned down these kind of projects, they just don’t happen for whatever reasons. But I’m up for some s**t like this because I know we can make a dope record."
