50 states Nas's career finished ...

Snippet from a recent interview with XXL Magazine

Nas threw a shot on “Queens Get the Money,” and you didn’t respond. You getting all Gandhi on us?

50 Cent: Man, Nas is cold as ice. Nas is the block of ice that sunk the Titanic… I didn’t even hear his record. I didn’t even hear what you talking about… I really don’t want to talk about Nas. I think he’s at one of those points to where his career’s finished, to be honest. He’s had some great moments and made good music in the past, but he no longer has the interest of the general public or myself.

Thanks to: XXL Magazine

Did some research; had to hear "Queens get the money"-Nas. (which I have provided for you below).



In my opinion, Nas's career is not over. Nas is one of my favorite lyricists; & honestly 50 is just a bit salty over this.

What is your opinion? Do you feel Nas's career is over?
What is your opinion on 50 and his music?

I heard dis track before, Nas is ILL and he stay in tha times, He's one of my top five Mc's and in my opinion, 50's career is tha one that is fallin off, especially after kanye killed him in record sales lol

lmfao; true story. I mean 50 said he sets standards and he set the mill dollar mark & didn't make it. not that it was a failure but i just feel that all of 50's shxt is commercial. people dance to that shxt in the club and don't really care what it says unless they can shake their axx's to it. me i listen to lyrics... so for the hip hop head; yall understand.

he sold 700,000 by the way; "evolution" (his recent album). which is not bad; but being that its 50; he pretty much is loosing some of his listeners.

[ashley] i know right? maaaaaaan. 50 don't know...

dauche said...

50 does have a pretty big head; he's speaking mainly on club buzz. i don't want to always listen to [shake my axx joints; when im in the club its fine]. i'm trying to gain some knowledge & listen to someone who has something to actually say. that REAL shxt. HIP HOP. lyyyrriiiccciiisst. lol.

& yeah i have no doubts; i feel a little something coming... he has no choice to go harder...

Nas peaked at Illmatic.

And it took me a second to catch the true meaning of your title.

I paused at '50 States.'

What?

Nas is touring all fifty U.S. states and he will then retire, finishing his career?

Anyway, we all know Curtis Jackson's deal. Start drama. Sell records.

Ant to you Nas folk. Mr. Jones has not come anywhere near Illmatic's lyricism in years. Stillmatic and the Jay-Z beef was his best effort after that classic.
