Nas has a new album, maybe a very rich new girl, and a new friend who used to be his foe.
After over a decade of beefing, the 41-year old has buried the hatchet with fellow Queens native N.O.R.E.
Nas and Noreaga had been 'Body In The Trunk' collaborators back in the '90s. But Noreaga was associated with Roc A Fella, and in the early century he got caught up in the feud between Nas and Jay Z. As a result, Nas called out Noreaga for his (lack of) lyricism.
N.O.R.E has had trouble forgiving Nas for this slight, even though he's referred to himself as a Nas fan over the years.
But it looks like it's now all water under the bridge "This is the first time I’ve seen this nigga in 8 years. My big brother," Noreaga says about Nas in the video below, which was taken from a performance this weekend at the LIV nightclub in Miami.
