A 25-year-old freestyle with Nas called “Real Niggas” has surfaced online. On this one, the The Grammy-winning rhyme spits lyrical darts at Tupac in what appears in response to the late rapper’s East Coast diss track “Type them. “
“From tubular socks to Timbs to the blue rocks and Benz / Who got the ends, the type of nigga that Tupac claims / To all the niggas that shine, guess who got revenge / I won’t show, my flow is choking you “, Nas raps on the song.
He then adds: “And if it doesn’t the .44 will smoke you, let your seed remember you / Emcees, I piss on you / Shine because my chips are longer / These gremlins, I I’m sick of you / Shots dodging ya / While Esco could rock the whole fucking Garden / Real niggas always gonna play that shit. “
The freestyle also includes a sample of Nas’s opening lines from his 1996 song “The message, Which initially sparked their so-called beef. Apparently Tupac thought the line “Fake thug, no love, you got the slug, CB4 Gusto / Your luck, I didn’t know until I was drunk,” was an outrage to him.
So, due to Nas’s affiliation to Mobb Deep, who ‘Pac was also at odds with at the time, the late rapper also decided to shoot the Queensbridge lyricist on “Against all odds” on The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory.
On that song that Tupac raps, “This little nigga named Nas thinks he lives like me / Talk about he left the hospital, took five like me / You live in fantasies, nigga, I reject your deposit.”
