A newly surfaced track finds Nas taking shots at 2Pac, The diss track was reportedly recorded 25 years ago at a time when things were heated between the two rap icons but, however, failed to see the light of day, maybe because the pair made amends right before Pac’s tragic death.
Somewhere along the song, Nas can clearly be heard rapping, “from tube-socks in Timbs to blue rocks and Benz / Who got the ends, the type of n*gga 2Pac pretends / To all n*ggas who shine, guess who got revenge.”
The beef between the rap icons started with Nas’ lyrics on ‘The Message’ from his album It Was Written. 2Pac did not let it slide as he also had a lot to say about Nas on ‘Against All Odds’ from his Makaveli album.
“This little n*gga named Nas think he live like me / Talkin’ ’bout he left the hospital, took five like me / You live in fantasies, n*gga, I reject your deposit.” He even went as far as accusing him of stealing his persona, saying Nas was trying to be just like him. “Hey Nas, your whole damn style is bitten / You heard my melody, read about my life in the papers / All my run-in with authorities, felonious capers / Now you want to live my life, so what’s a ‘chazzer’ Nas?.”
2Pac passed away on 13 September 1996 after he was fatally shot in a drive-by shooting in Las Vegas, Nevada. He was 25.
