Recently, Nas caved in and commented on a rare pic of himself and late rap mogul 2Pac.


The same day, the eye-opening new pic landed online and shook up social media.

On Tuesday (Oct. 10), an Instagram account by the name of contact.high.project uploaded a never-before seen image of ‘Pac and Nas together shortly before or after his performance at New York City’s Palladium on July 23, 1993. The image belongs to a contact sheet from the show. ‘Pac’s also in photos with Redman. (XXL Mag)
