Guest Star: "Me Dissing Nas Was Probably One Of My Biggest Regrets"

[With 2010 now a distant memory, DJ Whoo Kid admits that his biggest mistake in recent years was not hitting up Nas after publicly calling him out during a Shade 45 broadcast.]
I don't know if this is really huge, but I would say me dissing Nas was probably one of my biggest regrets. But you want to know what it is, this guy really can't take a joke. I think he thinks I'm serious but I was really joking and society made it serious [when I said him declining to appear on my Shade 45 show was 'p*ssy.']
I mostly regret not calling him and letting him know that it was a joke. But at the end of the day, he got me pissed off too because I went through a lot. I get hooked up on everything I do and I've been in this game for so many years, so when you get a close connect to him to ask a question and he still says no, it's just mind-boggling.
And what I needed from him was really nothing. I really knew him all the way before the sh*t [with him and 50 Cent]. I knew him way before anything. When I grew up, I learned from watching DJ Clue. DJ Clue was everywhere. And so the only thing Clue didn't have was the Queens connection. He was always with Jay-Z, in Philly with Beanie Sigel and all those guys.
But what I did was my homework. I hanged out with Mobb Deep, LL Cool J and everybody that was Queens. I made sure to invest my time in them and Nas was one of [those people]. I helped him with sh*t, did his mixtape and we had a cool relationship. That's why I always treat hip-hop like a business. It has to be a business because there's really not much loyalty in it. That's why the G-Unit link is so small. There's only like four of us because of the bullsh*t we go through. And when you assume somebody is really your friend, it's really not the case.
It's really not super serious but it's just one of those things that make you say "D*mn." It was just a wack situation. I don't even know if it was a regret, but it was just really wack.
