I know you missing Nas all the (fame)
Verse 3 was added for the album version of The Blueprint. Here, we see Hov’s first real shots on wax toward Nas, attacking his discography, personal life, character and more. What’s notable about this verse is that while the first two are only 16 bars, and aimed mostly at Mobb Deep, Jay doubled the recording to make it 32 bars. Notice that even the 3rd verse on Nas response has 32 bars.
This would begin hip-hop’s most talked about beef
Intreseting to note is that with I Am and Nastradamus Nas sold around 3.5 million which was more then Jays sales in the same year. So he was famous. It was all to get under his skin.
