Kanye West is garnering as much attention as he can with the impending Donda release, one that should have already come and gone by now. Fans are not happy about that either and they are speaking out on social media too. Nas has his own epic album, a long-awaited star-studded drop ready to come with King’s Disease II. It dropped on time.
Nas’ follow-up to his Grammy Award-winning record has 15 tracks, and a bloated lineup to boot. Eminem appears on one track, and fans are clamoring to take a listen.
Naturally, anything with Marshall Mathers’ fingerprint will garner a ton of attention. The EPMD 2 track has an interesting name, and Shady’s verse also includes some clever wordplay as always, but also a lot of love.
Marshall Mathers paid tribute to several hip hop artists in his verse, those who have paved the way like MF DOOM, Whodini’s Ecstasy, DMX and The Fat Boys’ Prince Markie Dee. 50 Cent also got some love as he said “I hit 50 Cent via text, told him I love him/Cause I don’t even know when I’mma see him next/ Tomorrow could be your death.” Cryptic stuff.
50 Cent reacted to that verse and he seemingly approved. It might have tugged at Fif’s heartstrings a tad as he responded with a clip of the song and a caption reading:
“No you can not front on this verse you just gotta listen, shut the f*ck up and listen.”
50 Cent also included several emojis to accent his caption. You can check out the song and the post from 50 below. It’s worth checking out as Em and Nas laid down one great track.
On another note, Eminem once paid a tremendous amount of money just to buy an unopened Illmatic cassette tape. Everyone has their own collection.
