Fast forward, who thought that I would meet him on tour?
J.Cole told Vibe Magazine about the first time he met Nas
Nas was pretty much the same thing as Em. I met Nas a couple times, but I just saw him in Toronto shopping and I ran to him. I feel lame as shit talking to him. When he bigs me up, it weirds me out even more. Like how can you give me props when you’re Nas? But when I talk to him, I feel like I’m talking too much like a fan. And it’s because I am a fan. So I’ll just be spitting shit out and then I have to be like ‘Yo just shut the fuck up.’ I’d probably be the same way with Jay if I didn’t interact with him so much..
For J.Cole to meet Nas meant alot to Cole given how much of an idol he was to him.
The use of “fast forward” is clever, since one of the classics off of Stillmatic is the song “Rewind”. Nice contrast.
