You ever had a chance to meet Nas… after you dissed him [laughs]?
Yeah I got a chance to meet him. Cool story, so everybody knows I dissed Nas a couple times when he was riding for Jay or whatever, but I always loved Nas’ music. But I was riding for the team no matter what. So we was at the video shoot for “Roc Boys” after he and Jay got cool. We were leaving out at the same time, so I stopped him and I was like ‘Yo I love your music dawg’ and he was like ‘I love your music too.’ So he gave me a pound and we embraced each other. I just seen him in Philly a couple weeks ago performing at the Electric Factory.
So being that you were a Nas fan the whole time, did it hurt back then to have to have dissed him?
It hurt but it was like helping me be a man at the same time, like you do things that you don’t want to do but you got to do it.
