[Verse 1: Nas]
Just to clear up any misinformation about when this track was written, here is an interview with the producer of the track, Chris Winston:
Canns — So firstly, can you confirm to everyone when you actually produced the track ‘Deja Vu’? A lot of people actually thought that was an ‘Illmatic’ outtake, whilst others suggested it came a bit later as Nas used the same lyrics on ‘Verbal Intercourse’?
Chris Winston — Yes I produced Deja Vu. It was well after Illmatic when Nas started working on It Was Written. He wrote the lyrics to Deja Vu with me then ended up using the 1st Verse on Raekwon’s joint."
