On Saturday, Nas put a post on Instagram promoting the new song. In the post, Nas wrote a heartfelt passage about the generational divide that we see in the hip-hop community.

In the message Nas wrote:

Today’s game is as big as it gets. It seems like nobody gettin along tho. It’s a big enough game to do what you do and let ya talent speak for itself. This new cat over here says something bad about Pac. This older guy gets mad at the new guy. Or “Nas ain’t hip hop. Migos and Future are Hip Hop” Neil Diamond x Jack White have a Concert coming up together. Gettin it done.

White musicians have that freedom and are praised for coming together… more power to them and I’m a fan of it.

why can’t black artist do that and make it cool? We are all artists, let’s all evolve together. Walk With Me. WALK THRU.
