I could literally listen to you quote lyrics from Elton John songs all day. I tap into the part of lyricism that means the writer was not scared to go there. If you say something so fucking profound and made it look so fucking easy, I fuck with you.
He rapped a fucking song backwards , man. I love him like my birth brother, but I hate that! I will never ever in life be able to do that. To me, Nas is the best fucking rapper ever. It may have took him a fucking career to write that song, but he did it so effortlessly. One of the themes in the book is your ambivalence about James Prince, the founder of Rap-A-Lot Records—about what he gave you, as well as what he cost you.
On the one hand, you clearly admired him, but at the same time, there are these really brutal moments, like when you realize you're not getting paid properly by Rap-A-Lot. You spend a lot of time unpacking those feelings. Was that therapeutic? I would say it was more painful than therapeutic, because the role that he played in my life was that of an idol, my big brother.

That was someone that I looked up to, someone that I continue to look up to, to the present day. Because I would have done that to him if it were the other way around. And you never got that payday from Rap-A-Lot, did you? You talk a lot about your regrets on the business side; the music business is mostly discussed in terms of what it took away. It took away my life! It took away my time with my family, my kids. It took away my relationships.
There are a lot of regrets.

In his book Face reveals that Nas took shots at Jay on the original version of "In Between Us," but dialed the verse back after Face's request.
In the summer of , Luda signed and went on to sell millions of records.
Face tried to get the label to bite on a little-known Miami rapper by the name of Teflon, but he writes: Scarface and 2Pac were longtime friends and recorded "Smile" right before Pac was murdered in Before putting the track out Face tried to get Stevie Wonder to sing the hook and the song's producer Tone Capone says he saw the music legend shed a tear while listening. Prince who had the last say.
