The 90’s rap beef between Nas and Tupac resurfaces with an unreleased Nas freestyle called “Real N***as” taking aim at the iconic rap star.
Fans got taken aback when they first heard, “This little n**ga named Nas think he live like me,” on the song followed by “Talkin’ bout he left the hospital, took five like me / You live in fantasies, n**ga, I reject your deposit.” Despite the harsh rhetoric from Pac, the two rap legends made peace with each other prior to his untimely death in Las Vegas. It is now revealed online through the single “Real N****” that Nas had clapped back at Shakur for his lines on “Against All Odds” twenty five years later after the beef.
The unreleased song is a gem for hip hop fans as we hear Nas get at Shakur by calling out his name.
“From tube-socks in Timbs to blue rocks and Benz / Who got the ends, the type of n**ga 2Pac pretends,” he raps. “To all n**gas who shine, guess who got revenge / I won’t showboat, my flow choke you — and if it don’t the fo-fo will smoke you.”
Nas rhymes for war would be reignited in later years when he would lash back at Jay-Z who took shots at him on the single “Takeover”. That situation never got violent, but no one knows what could have been the outcome for Nas during the 90’s since his peers met their demise by the hand of gun.
