Nas Discusses Friendship With Tupac, “Life Is Good”

Nas discusses his relationship with Tupac during a discussion moderated by Steve Stoute at SXSW in Houston, Texas. Nas was one of many New York Mc’s Tupac had beef with.

“Pac’s one of my favorite artists,” began Nas. “We saw each other…really got to the bottom of it. What he said to me is, ‘Me and you are brothers. Me and you are never supposed to go at it. But I heard you were dissing me on this new Akinyele album.

“Greater heads prevailed…and we both knew we were supposed to continue that conversation,” he continued. “I was scheduled to meet him in Vegas…and you and Jimmy Iovine called me at about four in the morning, and told me that he might not make it.”

Nas then went on to talk about his upcoming album Life Is Good with the singles The Don and Nasty on it…

“[The album has] the eras that I like,” he explained. “‘Nasty’ was a ’90s kind of vibe. That’s woven in there.

“Some personal stuff, life stuff in there. I tried to put that out there, get that off my chest,” he added.
