Jay-Z and Nas spoke to the USATODAY about the recent news that Nas had signed with Def Jam, the label his one-time rival Jay-Z, now presides over.In an article published today (Jan. 25), Jay-Z said his feud with Nas ended after the two met at the urging of Jive Records executive Mark Pitts, who was the former manager of Notorious B.I.G. and Nas’ current manager.”Everybody talks about Big and Pac and how that ended,” Jay-Z told the USA Today. “We talked about showing a different side and what it would mean to the culture of hip-hop. It was bigger than just us and our trivial little beefs. Hopefully, it shows another way.”Nas said Def Jam was a more hip-hop oriented label that will allow him to explore new ways of expressing his creativity.”I wake up every day in a new world that new children are growing up in,” Nas said “Growing up in the ’80s and ’90s, it was one way, and now it’s a whole new world with the things that these kids listen to or watch on TV.”Jay-Z also spoke to MTV News about Cam’ron’s recent dis track “Gotta Love It.”Cam’ron released the seven minute song last week, which among other things, accuses Jay-Z of stealing Roc-A-Fella, Roc-A-Wear and Kanye West from former partner Damon Dash.”My thing is, it’s such an obvious ploy for attention and to get people to talk about it and for [Cam to] sell albums,” Jay-Z told MTV News “I’m torn…I feel like I would be stupid to even pay that any attention, because it’s such a ploy. N**gas is holding press conferences behind [the dis record]…That’s not even a good dis record. That s**t is trash. I’m torn. We’ll see what happens. Maybe on my time we’ll deal with it, but I’m not really pressed. I’m inspired by good artistic s**t. Cam’s s**t is not artistic. There’s nothing good about it. Everything about it is an obvious ploy to get attention. Nobody wants to get used.”
