Nas undoubtedly has some stories. With more than 25 years in the rap game, there’s still many things we don’t know about the Queensbridge rapper. In a recent episode of the Drink Champs podcast with NORE & DJ EFN, Nas talked about the time he unsuccessfully asked Prince to collaborate with him.
“I sought him because he came to by I Am album release party,” he began. “I pulled a NORE move. I said, ‘Yo look, man. Let’s do this. Let’s do this song.’ And he said, ‘Do you own your masters?’ But he blew my s*** because I was like, ‘I don’t.’ And I’m far from it ’cause I owe this label four, five albums.”
Prince went on to deny the feature, but did not close off the possibility of a collaboration in the future. “He kind of helped me see the future. And he was like, ‘when you owe your masters, give me a ring.'”
