Nas is acting honourably.
This week, the hip-hop superstar made news after 21 Savage questioned his applicability in the current music industry.
The Her Loss artist asserted “He’s not significant” during a Twitter Spaces discussion before elaborating on why. He simply has a devoted fan base. He merely has a devoted following and continues to produce excellent music.
After receiving criticism for his divisive remarks, 21 insisted that he wasn’t making fun of Nas. He wrote, “I would never disrespect Nas or any great who paved the path for me. You guys are just trying to take things and run with them.”
Nas looked to break his quiet with the Friday release of his album King’s Disease III. He tweeted a picture of himself on Tuesday, appearing to be amused by 21’s evaluation. He included the word “LOVE” and the sobbing laughing face emoji in his caption.
Nas was praised in the comments by fans. One person wrote, “A King’s reaction!” while another person added, “Relevant.”
Nas doesn’t appear to be affected by 21’s remarks, but Kodak Black was one of several who criticised the Slaughter Gang MC for disparaging the Queens star. He questioned Nas’ relevance on Instagram Live, “How the fk Nas.” Smoking nia dick You’re insane That boy Nas. You’re drunk.
With 21 Kodak has his own problems. Savage had promised to “smoke” Kodak in a Verzuz battle a few days previously. “I had hits before all this Drake sht. Recently, I’ve had diamond songs. I think I’m the only ni*a of this generation to achieve platinum status without any features, he bragged.
