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.

Any hip hop historian would know about the rivalry Tupac had with the east coast after his quad studio shooting in 1994. The feudal war became infamous as all the top emcees were targeted by Shakur including the incomparable Nas from Queensbridge. The issue stemmed from the release of Nas’ sophomore album It Was Written.  The song from the project entitled, “The Message,” was thought to be a diss by Tupac which caused his retaliation on his own project “Makaveli” with the single “Against All Odds.”

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.
