Nas Asked for It…

Nas Asked for It...

Nas is like, the rest of us. He watches the video shows, listens to the radio, downloads mp3s from his favorite hip-hop blogs, and wonders what happened to all the rappers who could actually rap. On his new album, Hip Hop is Dead (If I Worked with Puffy, Here’s How I Did It…), Escobar lends mainstream credibility to the Just Naming Every Rapper You Can Think Of concept — mined recently by the likes of Edan and Quasimoto — with his song (and subsequent remixes of) “Where Are They Now.” On the track, Nas demands to know what became of various hip-hop figures from yestercentury.

GB is like, obliging. We’ve hit up all connects in an effort to locate everybody on his list. Some who were not on the list called us nonetheless to let us know they were still alive (whatup, Turbo B!) in case Nas was wondering (sorry B, he wasn’t). Rammellzee actually called to ask where he was at. Anyway, we found them all, so here you go, Nasty Nas:

Redhead Kingpin — Stopped fronting and actually joined the F.B.I.

Tim Dog — Still hanging out on the front stoop of Kool Keith’s apartment building, looking forlorn.

Group Home – Premier stopped giving them beats.

    I mean….I usually enjoy GB, but….

    I have to give this concept 4 fucknerds, but its execution/content only gets 2 fucknerds on a 5 fucknerd scale.

    Even if we used the Benzino Curve, this wouldn’t get more than a total of 3 fucknerds.
