50 Things You Didn't Know About Nas [Click Inside]



Complex writes:

Last week, we dug up a ton of obscure facts for a post revealing 50 things you didn't know about Jay-Z. And since we did one on Hov, it's only right to do one for Nas, because since the turn of the century, every rap fan knows that it's difficult to mention one of these artists without at least thinking of the other.

Nas is one of the greatest rappers ever, but he doesn't always like to reveal much about himself. He's sometimes elusive in interviews, and in many instances, isn't even the protagonist in his own songs, but instead an observer. Maybe that's why this year's Life Is Good was so well-received—it was such a personal project.

So, to put some aspects of the legendary MC's air of mystery to rest, we did some more digging and found several lesser known facts about Nasty Nas.

Without further ado, here are 50 Things You Didn't Know About Nas:
-He was offered and declined an audition for the lead in Save The Last Dance.
-His daughter Destiny is listed as an Executive Producer on Stillmatic so she can always receive royalty checks from the album.
-His advance was worth $17,000 after signing with Columbia Records.
-50 Cent was briefly in Nas' Firm crew, but left after it didn't work out.
-The original version of "Ether" was produced by Swizz Beatz.
-He got rid of his Lexus because he wanted to get a better car than Jay-Z's.
-The original version of "Ether" featured the line, "It should've been you in that plane crash"—referring to the plane crash Aaliyah died in.

-He cried when he heard 2Pac diss him on "Against All Odds."
