Journalist Dream Hampton’s assertion that the Queens legend used fellow emcees Jay Electronica and stic.man to pen parts of his Untitled album was hit with backlash from the culture. Nas even addressed those rumors on his latest single “The Season.”
On the track Nas also spit “Jungle the only brother I take s**t from.” He went into further detail on how his younger brother helped him write one of the biggest records of his career at a recent concert. During his show at the Fun Fun Fun Fest in Austin, Texas, Nas told the crowd that Jungle offered an assist on his classic Stillmatic track “One Mic.”
