@darkman84 I think your quote of what nas said was misinterpreted. He says "eye" not "I" (as in T.I). The quote "In the land of the blind, the one-eyed man is king" is a very famous proverb in this case describing the relationship between knowledge/ power and ignorance. I don't think it was a jab but can see your point though. Respect still
@midnight.....it's not a diss he said in the land of the blind a man with one i is king. i played the song like ten times after i heard it and it sounds like a jab not a diss! it's still a hot track! the title of the album is nigger and last time i check conscious rapper or gangsta rapper will call your ass out if he feels so on any platform! if he means that we are blind cause we call T.I. the king then that what he means. Nas has not said anything but i feel he blames the south for hip hop is dead and thats why i said it's a jab!
@darkman84 u sure that Nas dissing T.I coz i'm not so sure nas aint really on calling dudes out no more now plus he wouldn't wanna be calling out rappers on his album as it would undermine the whole political side of it. But whatever Nas is the most conscious rapper out.
