- Nas has weighed in on fellow US rapper Jay-Z dropping music at the same time as him
- Jay-Z has been accused by some music followers of intentionally dropping new music whenever Nas drops an album
- The Made You Look hitmaker has expressed that maybe him and Jigga like to work around the same time
Nas has opened up about fellow rapper Jay-Z supposedly purposefully releasing music at the same time as him. The two US rappers have dropped a couple of projects on the same day for almost their entire rap careers.
Fans have come to know that when Nas drops a new song or album, Jigga will also drop on the same day or a day after. Nas was recently asked about Jay-Z's moves in a recent interview with The Breakfast Club. He was asked if he thinks the Dirt Off Your Shoulder hitmaker drops projects on his albums' release dates on purpose.
"I think that maybe there’s an energy that we both have where maybe we like to work around the same time... I think it's just synergy. Jay would know better than me."
Nas and Jay were once involved in a huge beef after dissing each other n a couple of tracks but reportedly squashed it a few years ago. Just recently, Briefly.co.za reported that Jay-Z and Pharrell Williams have dropped a collab single titled Entrepreneur. At the time, Nas was expected to drop his 12-track album King's Disease on 21 August. Nas had already released the lead single Ultra Black a week before.
Social media users shared mixed reactions to the track when Jay dropped it on 20 August. While some tweeps felt that the song was dope, some accused Jay-Z of always dropping new music at the same time as his old rival Nas. They feel that he does this to stop Nas from shining.
In other music news, Briefly.co.za reported that Toni Braxton recently dropped her 10th studio album titled Spell My Name. The new project consists of ten tracks. The songstress only features rapper Missy Elliott and singer H.E.R on two of her songs.
Toni has been in the music industry since the 1990s but she still brings fire whenever she touches the mic. The stunner dropped the hot album on 28 August. The R&B singer took to Instagram a few hours the album dropped to remind her fans about the project.
They took to her comment section to tell the star that they cannot wait to listen to her soothing voice. Toni wrote:
"Here we go! One more sleep and Spell My Name arrives! Thank you to all my Tigerz for your love and support."
