Rap legend Nas has just released King’s Disease 3 and has thrown jabs at Jay-Z and producer Pete Rock.
Nas just dropped his anticipated album, Kings Disease 3. The 49-year-old rap great dropped fire bars and took shots at two notable New York music icons, Jay-Z and Pete Rock.
On Nas’s song “Thun,” he name-dropped Jay-Z jokingly.
“No beef or rivals, they playin ‘Ether’ on TIDAL
Brothers can be anything when they decide to
In a Range Rover, dissectin’ bars from Takeover.”
Nas and Jay-Z had a very notable feud in the early 2000s. Nas’s most well-known diss track was “Ether,” and Jay-Z’s famous diss track was “The Takeover.” TIDAL is a music streaming service owned by HOV.
In the song “30”, the Illmatic artist mentions New York producer Pete Rock and reminisces on a missed encounter.
“Superhero material, rap star status
Premier album still might happen
I wonder why Pete Rock would act like that.
That type of behavior make me give rap right back.”
Nas has worked with DJ Premier in the past and recently on the album Hip-Hop 50: Volume 1. The lyrics refer to when he was rejected from doing a joint project with Pete Rock.
