Nas seems to have seen all the discussion about 21 Savage’s comments on his no longer being relevant and has issued what appears to be a response.
The Queensbridge legend hopped on Instagram this Tuesday (November 15) to share a pic of him with the caption “LOVE” along with a crying laughing emoji. This provoked a ruckus in his comment section.
“30 summers,” former NBA star Carmelo Anthony wrote in reference to Nas’ King’s Disease III track “30,” the sequel to King’s Disease‘s “27 Summers.”
A different fan posted “A King’s response!”
21 Savage has come under fire this week when he asked the participants of an Clubhouse conference which definition they believed was”relevant” was. The question prompted him to make controversial remarks about Nas. “I don’t feel like he’s relevant,” the rapper stated. “I don’t feel like Nas is relevant.”
The chatroom was a mess after which the Atlanta rapper then went on to say that even despite Nas his supposed lack of relevance, he believes that the veteran rapper has an “loyal” fan base and still produces great music. The heated discussion seemed focus on ’90s rappers who continue to drop albums.
21 Savage Later, 21 Savage tried to clarify his statements on Monday night (November 14) following his appearance as the most talked about topic on Twitter and explained that he wasn’t aiming disrespect to anyone.
“I would never disrespect nas or any legend who paved the way for me y’all be tryna take stuff and run with it,” 21 tweeted on Twitter as he praised Escobar.
The angry Nas fans expressed their displeasure with the incendiary remarks of 21 -and that includes Nas his younger brother Jungle who entered the Shade Room‘s Instagram comments section to criticize Savage.
“21 Savage is trash I’m glad Nas dropped KD3 so fans can hear real bars… 21 can u do something for me,” the rapper wrote.
Nas was on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah on Monday evening, and he discussed more about how he can keep his place in the game for young people known as Hip Hop.
“Somebody, a close friend of mine, contacted me today and asked”You’re aware of how long you’ve lived and how long you’ve survived and what you’ve gone through? ‘” he said. “We just lost an Hip Hop artist the other week in Takeoff. I’ve lost a lot of friends before I even got interested in the music industry.”
Nas dropped King’s Disease III on Friday (November 11). It is the third album of the Hit-Boy-produced series which has earned Nas the first Grammy Award in 2021. The franchise is also commercially successful with the album debuting in the top five of the Billboard 200.
