METHOD MAN ADMITS TO BITING NAS ON BIGGIE COLLAB ‘THE WHAT’

Method Man has admitted to biting Nas on Biggie’s “The What.” The legendary rapper spoke up in a new conversation about nabbing Nasir Jones’ flow once.

The Wu-Tang Clan icon holds the unique distinction of being the sole guest artist on The Notorious B.I.G.’s 1995 debut Ready to Die. “The What” finds them orchestrally running a two-man weave over fire production from Easy Mo Bee with some sneering rhymes.

If you listen close enough, though, one can hear the DNA of another New York Hip-Hop icon. During a recent appearance on Math Hoffa’s My Expert Opinion podcast, Method Man confessed to biting Nas on the collab.

He recollected…

“By the time I got [to the studio], Biggie’s verse was written and he told me that he wanted to end it with, ‘You can’t mess with M-E’ and I was supposed to go, ‘T-H-O-D.’ But I overlapped him because it didn’t fall on beat doing it that way. That’s where the ‘T-H-O-D Man, here I am/I’ll be damned if this ain’t some sh*t.’

“I wrote that sh*t quick as f**k. Who was I biting there? Whose flow was I [biting]? Nas. That’s biting Nas’ flow. ‘I’ll be damned if this ain’t some sh*t/Come to spread the butter lyrics over hominy grits… Coming where you rest at, surrender/Step inside the ring, you’s the number one contender/Looking cold-booty like your pu**y in December.’”

At least he owned up to it! Nas probably doesn’t care too much, and hey, perhaps he already knew.

Until the next time it drips…
