Mc Shan Rebukes Nas: “Don’t Mention My Name Again”

Rapper Nas has been uttered out by MC Shan over him not being included in any of the Hip Hop 50 celebrations he’s been organizing throughout the first half of 2023.

The one-time Juice Crew legend took to Instagram recently and aired out his frustrations with his fellow Queensbridge resident.

“I’m sitting here hearing that Nas is doing these muthafuckin’ 50th-anniversary shows, right?” MC Shan began. “Nas, if you doing 50th-anniversary shows and you ain’t holla at ya mans, let me tell you something, my n-gga, don’t never mention my muthafuckin’ name again. Don’t put my name in ya mouth about nothing, n-gga.”

He proceeded: “See, I’m not one of them n-ggas that’s fucking glorified by n-ggas with money. I could give a fuck how much money a n-gga got. N-gga, you put your pants on one leg at a time like men n-gga. I ain’t glorified by the shit you have.

“But I’m looking at it like this, n-gga: if you gettin’ n-ggas money on the 50th of Hip Hop, and you glorify me and say, ‘Yo, Shan this,’ and you ain’t call me and say, ‘Yo, Shan, I see what you doing, n-gga.’ “I done did a show with you muthafucka, but if you ain’t call me and that whole roster is full, n-gga, don’t never mention my mothafuckin’ name.”
MC Shan continued his tirade by saying he doesn’t need “Nas’ accolades” and how he “deals on loyalty” above all else.

This year, Nas has toured with Wu-Tang Clan globally for the second instalment of their N.Y. State of Mind Tour (which hits North America this fall).
A gig produced by Nas’ Mass Appeal, a Hip-Hop 50 Live show will be held at Yankee Stadium on August 11, with entertainers including Snoop Dogg, T.I., Fat Joe, Eve, Lil Kim, Trina, Common, Slick Rick and more.

While Hip Hop 50 Live will also include pioneers for a Pillar of Hip-Hop set – like Kurtis Blow, Melle Mel, Grandmaster Caz, Roxanne Shanté and others – it’s conceivable that MC Shan feels sidelined by the exclusion, as he isn’t on the bill.
