RadioOnFire.com – Nas dropped his highly anticipated The Lost Tapes 2 on Friday (July 19), and the closing track, “Beautiful Life,” has gained a lot of attention for the personal content he reveals.
The Queens legend addresses headlines involving his past relationships on the track, including the mother of his daughter Destiny, Carmen Bryan, and her book, It’s No Secret. Nas rhymes, “My baby’s mom made a book about me, she tried to out me/In Barnes & Nobles new release section she’s confessin’.”
He then addresses claims that Carmen was behind his beef with Jay-Z, which he said is not true with the line, “Now the streets guessing the beef started over some woman/Couldn’t be the furthest thing from the truth.”
Nas also seems to addresses his relationship with Kelis, his IRS issues, and he gives a shout out to Akinyele, which you can hear below.
