Biggie Originally Wanted Nas to Get On a “Gimme the Loot” Remix

edited February 2016 in The Reason


DJ Khaled has lowkey been getting some of the best interviews in rap with his new We The Best Beats 1 radio show, and earlier this month he interviewed Nas for the second episode. Now the full video of the interview is available above as Esco talks about the controversy surrounding “Hate Me Now,” being in the studio with Biggie, and whether he’s been working on any new music.

“Yeah, makin’ new records,” Nas says about that last part. “For awhile, just trying to feel the inspiration. One month I know what I’m doing, the next month I’m starting all over again. So it’s a lot of that.”

But elsewhere in the interview, Nas gets into how Biggie originally wanted him on a remix to “Gimme The Loot.” The two were smoking some “chocolate,” and the way Esco tells it, he just didn’t write anything for the song. He asked Biggie if he had anything, and Big just started spitting without writing anything down. After that, Nas went right to Hot 97 to tell that story because rumors were spreading about Biggie not writing his lyrics down at the time.

This is especially interesting because later on in their careers, tension would arise between the two New York MCs. In ’94 Nas dropped Illmatic and later that year Biggie dropped his debut album Ready to Die. Both featured babies on the cover, and Raekwon would later famously call Big out for “biting Nas shit” on his Purple Tape in ’95.

In addition, Nas says his favorite collaboration of all time is “Fast Life” with Kool G Rap. He also names his favorite all-time non-rap albums (A Love Supreme by John Coltrane, Songs in the Key of Life by Stevie Wonder and Kind of Blue by Miles Davis) as well as his favorite rap albums: Public Enemy’s It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back, Eric B and Rakim’s Paid in Full, Criminal Minded by BDP, Bigger and Deffer by LL Cool J, Wanted: Dead or Alive by Kool G Rap, Long Live the Kane by BDK, Slick Rick’s Great Adventures of Slick Rick, Death Certificate by Ice Cube, Mr. Scarface is Back by Scarface, and Tribe’s Instinctive Travels.

Esco gives props a couple other artists doing it right now too. “Future is innovative with his music. Everybody’s in the club, it’s undeniable. His fans, it’s an undeniable movement. I saw him come from starting something and then a lotta people [did] something that sounded identical to him. So for him to step back and come back stronger than before, that’s some staying power. He’s proving a lot to the game.

“On the other side of it, you got J. Cole, you got Kendrick, you got Drizzy. Those are like the ones right there. You got Meek Mills of course, reppin’ the streets which is needed. You got Chance The Rapper. Chance is noticing what he’s doing. I like him. And Yo Gotti.”

    @ the bolded. These are your favorite rapper's favorite albums.

    I'm just saying..

    Because thats the era he grew up in...same reason my favorite albums are mostly from the 90s. Doesn't mean someone younger is wrong if there favorite album is carter 2 or college dropout or whatever

    Makes sense. The question remains; how come half of those albums aren't in the vault?

    Does Kool G Rap even have an album in the vault?

    How about LL Cool J?

    Nas admitted this at the VH1 hip hop honors that "Big made him go home" self ether at the time considering the debates on the IC.

    Where does it say Big went home and declined a remix & running to Hot97 to preach about Nas?...

    2nd hand ducktales doesn't constitute proof, Nas admited to this, Big never did...

    Timing on the admission is irrelevant...

    Did I post the titangraph or was it you?...

    At any rate we missed out on a potential classic track for whatever reason let's you sleep at night...

    Feel better?...

    Sounds like, basically, nas and big were both hard to rap after. Even for each other. Just wish they wouldve did that track together would've been legendary

    I'll give the slight edge to Biggie but it's close.

    Bruh I don't remember you being a bitch before, again you're making up a scenario that isn't true, superg is the epitome of a lame but you're stoopin to his level right now, at no point was feelings caught I was reminded of an old story and it just so happens these type of things tend to happen, Nas was showing love to a friend and legend and you turned it into some other shit, now kys
