I showed you your first Tec, on tour with Large Professor
Nas and Jay-Z were on the same tour, Nas with Large Pro’s group Main Source and Jay with The Jaz. After the show was cut short by promoters, angry fans followed the rappers back to the tour bus. Taking no chances with the DC crowd, young Hov pulled a Tec-9 semi-automatic from a duffel bag.
We don’t know whether this was Nas' first Tec, but the line is definitely based on an actual event.
Note: Jay’s “Me! That’s who!” in the background is another reference to Tony Montana in Scarface.
