Stumbled upon this old interview that was done around the time Nas dropped his Hip Hop Is Dead lp. At the time, I believe him and 50 were having a little back n forth in the industry. Nas talks about their situation & goes on to name who he feels are the true Kings of NY. The video is actually very relevant to what's going on today in hip hop (Kendrick Lamar/Control), and it's a definite must see.

(Throwback Interview) @Nas says '@50Cent, Biggie and Jay-Z are Kings of New York!'
"Nuclear Winter represents many things. It represents dark times in our lives, it represents the state of NY hip hop & how I feel about it, & it represents my blueprint on how I think the music should be done going forward into the future. This is my manifesto to all the people that doubted me & the kryptonite to all selfishness. It's a journey from darkness into light, & from bondage & the huge amounts of weight on our shoulders to breaking free and regaining our freedom. Nuclear Winter we're coming to take shine....." - Willie Maze
