According to reports, the Queens native is taking the high road in a potentially ugly album release feud.
Sources close to Nas tell us the Queensbridge rapper isn’t fuming about “Everything Is Love” being released on Saturday, and doesn’t think the Carters will steal any thunder from his new album, “Nasir.” We’re told Nas fully appreciates the fact Jay and Bey are hip-hop royalty at this point, and actually really likes their new record.

This week, Top Dawg Entertainment’s Jay Rock said he felt proud putting out his new Redemption album the same week as Nas and The Carters.
“Nah, not at all,” Rock said when asked if he was upset about having to compete with the music veterans and their new releases. “Shout-out to them. The way I look at it is it puts me up there with the greats. It feels good. I’ve always been a fan of Nas. Shout-out to him. It’s a beautiful thing just to be mentioned amongst those people.” (“The Breakfast Club”)
The Internet made sure to troll Nas over having to compete with JAY-Z and Beyoncé’s new release.
Last weekend, Nas shared some epic hip-hop moments from his NASIR Thursday listening session.
