During Nas' sophomore album, he started mafioso rap. Because of the success Raekwon had with Wu-Gambinos, Nas started his own Escobar alter ego similar to how 2Pac started callin himself Makaveli. Nas' track "I gave you power" influenced 2Pac to record "Me and My Girlfriend" both rapping from the perspective of a gun. 2Pac took offense to Nas because of Nas' "Fake Thug/No Love/you get the slugs" line from "The Message" and the lyrics sounded too much like what happened to 2Pac in 1995 with him getting shot and checking out the hospital.
There are conflicting stories regarding whether or not Nas and 2Pac squashed their beef at NY central park 2 days before 'Pac got shot (the 2nd time) but 2Pac Got Goals Accomplished before he died
Outlaws confirmed the story at the 4-minute mark: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eepmiMk_f2o
28. Jun. 2007, 12:47 von KinayEventhough I only had like 12 minutes, I think I made a real cool interview with F-A-B-O-L-O-U-S. One of my favourite rappers!!!! It was published in the June issue from the JUICE magazine. For all my german people, I scanned in the interview for you.. read it in german right here:
For the rest of the world.. here it is in English.. Check it out...
Kinay: Your first album over Def Jam and 4th in your career is called from "Nothing to Something". How did that name come up?
Fabolous: The name came up to me, because I felt like everybody is trying to turn nothing into something. It's not like people are nothing, People either have nothing or a little bit of something and try to turn it into more. So I want to do some motivation music to help people to turn that into more. People take music and it helps them to get through some problems and it keeps them working and it keeps them pushin', keeps them grindin' and keeps them hustling.

24. Aug. 2006, 20:14 von CharronThis one's tough for me, since I don't like hip-hop. It's tempting to just shrug it off and say that everything here sucks, don't listen to it, but then I'd be shirking my self-imposed duties. Besides, there are people out there who do like hip-hop, and it's only fair that I review every pack whether I like it or not. So, here's my impressions of the songs currently inflating these artists' listening charts.
1. Chamillionaire - Still Tippin: Exactly the sorta stuff I figured it would be. Actually, it's a bit more placid than I would expect, since I was under the impression he did "gangsta" rap. Seems to like that scratching effect.
2. Boss, Dougie D., Jay'ton, Lil B. & Trae - Gimmie the Mic (S.L.A.B.ed): Seems to blend three common elements of hip-hop, as I'm familiar with them: remixing, collaboration, and that high guitar-like loop.
3. One Block Radius - Black Mercedes: It's hip-hop, certainly, but it's got more of a rock/pop structure than the last few songs, which puts it more in my sort of listening. …
