Nas and 50 Cent are two Queens legends.
While Nas is a bit older than 50, they used to hang out back in the day. Nas was a big fan of Fif, but he wasn't sure if 50's antics were going to fly in the long run.

"My man used to hang with me all the time. I mean, studio vibes. We went on tours together," he continued. "Me and Fif, we go super back. You know what I'm saying. I remember 50 wildin' out. Wildin' out on the tours, like, you know, getting into drama in different states and everything. I'm like, 'Is this kid gonna make it?' I'm like, he's ready to get at anything moving. I'm like, 'you do know you're on stage, you got opportunity, You got incredible talent, my dude.' I just seen it in him. That fire. I always saw his talent and respected his talent."
Of course, 50 has gone on to have a long career. And now he has Instagram to go wild on, which is a lot safer than drama in all different area codes.
