New York rap veteran Nas has caved in and shared his thoughts on a previously never-before-seen pic of himself linked up with hip-hop icon Tupac Shakur.

Nasty Nas went to Instagram Tuesday (October 10) to provide context behind the shot.

Earlier in the 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)
