Nas is letting the world know of his recent come-up from Coinbase’s listing. In his recent DJ Khaled track with JAY-Z “Sorry Not Sorry,” Nas spits, “Winner in life, f*ck a coin toss / I’m Coinbased, basically cryptocurrency’s Scarface.”
Not only is a track with JAY-Z surprising for Nas fans, but the line itself caught fans off guard as it was a direct shoutout to Coinbase. The track goes on to mention things like Silicon Valley and intermittent fasting — a big shift in the lyrical content that the two are known for.
Check out the tweets below to read what some fans had to say about Nas’s love for cryptocurrency.
