Back on June 12th, a ThugLifeArmy.com staff writer, Westside wrote an editorial entitled ‘Hip-Hop Needs An Icon Rap Artists Help’. And now the word has come that what that article asked for has come to hip-hop.
In the editorial Westside said “So Nas, hip-hop needs you. The culture you helped build is becoming infested with rap roaches and those who are trying to ‘pimp’ hip-hop for their own gain and not the high-quality and standards of the culture. If not Nas there are a few others but someone, some living legend can step up and understand what needs to be down and ‘polish’ this all off; once and for all. And when and if it happens hip-hop can get back on the path and really start getting things accomplished.”
According to MTV Nas has finally responded to ‘Piggy Back’ in a new track titled "MC Burial".
On the track Nas unleashes his fury on the folks who''ve been mentioning him unfavorably.
"N---as don''t want beef, they vegetarians," Nas insists on the opening verse. And while he doesn''t mention 50 by name, several lines imply he's going at the G-Unit general.
"They say Jada defeated them, Joe's too street for him/ What's next? I guess it's for Nas to ether him.
"You's a sucker for death if I''m a sucker for love," he continues. "Scared of me so you talk about family members like I can''t point out your grandma, n---a."
Not that Nas had to really comment on Piggy Bank because we all know who the ‘top dawgs’ really are but it is great to see an icon like Nas spittin some well place retribution.
Nas has been telling everyone that his next LP is going to be called The NASDAQ Dow Jones, however his label said there's no official title yet. Nas is well into the recording process and his LP should be out this year.
