50 Cent Blasts Jay-z For Dropping His Album Same Day After Nas .
Hip-hop historians will tell you all about the classic rap beef between Jay and Nas, before beef amounted to calling each other names on Instagram. 50 seems to think that Jay never truly let that beef go, and decided to sabotage Nas’ album sales for Nasir by dropping his collaboration album with Beyoncé, Everything Is Love, the next day.
“That was Fvcked up what they did to Nas,” 50 tells DJ Whoo Kid in an interview. “That’s Fvcked up. I know what you did to Nas, Jay.”
While Whoo Kid giggles at 50’s proclamation, 50 explains himself further. “They came out on the same weekend,” he continued. “This N!gga still slapping him without anybody noticing what’s going on.” The whole time, he moves his bottles of his new champagne carefully, like chess pieces on a board.
It’s true that Everything Is Love did steal much of the thunder from Nasir’s release, but that’s no guarantee that it was planned that way. Nasir still debuted in the top 10 of the Billboard chart, and neither of those albums would have been able to best x*xTentacion’s chart resurgence following his death.
Nas has already expressed previously that he had no issues with Jay and Beyoncé dropping their albums on the same day as him, so 50 is basically working off his own theories here. Check out the full clip of 50 and DJ Whoo Kid down below.
