Nas “went too high” to complete the planned collaboration with Notorious BIG


Nas has revealed he is “too high” to complete his planned collaboration with the late Notorious BIG.The New York rapper, who released his new album “King’s Disease” last week, was set to team up with Biggie on a track or two in the early 1990s, which led to multiple rumors as to why the music never materialized.

In a recent edition of The breakfast clubNas was asked, “You weren’t supposed to make a record with Big but did something happen?” Like, your worms weren’t recorded? ”

In response, Nas said he was “too high” during the sessions. “I was in the studio and Big was rolling some of this Brooklyn chocolate – and he didn’t warn me,” he explained.

“It was just – I was zoned, yo. There are pictures from this session there. Yeah, we were supposed to do a few songs. I was going to remix stuff for [Biggie’s debut album] ‘Ready to die’ [1994]. »

When asked what he was working on at the time, Nas revealed that one of the songs was “Gimme The Loot” from the aforementioned debut album by Notorious BIG.

So why didn’t he just go back to the studio the next day? “Always high,” Nas replied. “We were smokers, man – [I] still am.

Notorious BIG – real name Christopher Wallace – was killed in a drive-by shootout in Los Angeles on March 9, 1997, less than three years after the release of his debut album. The seminal “Ready To Die” is now widely regarded as one of the greatest and most influential rap albums of all time.

Meanwhile, Nas insisted he had no issues with Doja Cat following the release of his recent single “Ultra Black”, which he seemed to dispel the artist from “Say So” on.

In a four-star review, NME hailed “King’s Disease” as “an extremely insightful and culturally relevant body of work that finds its author ready to try new ideas.”
