2Pac’s Beef With Nas / Nas’ Beef With 2Pac
Due to faults of his own, rapper Nas got caught up in the East vs Westcoast beef. Which of course Tupac wouldn’t of liked as it initially had nothing to do with Nas. Tupac and Nas met each other at the House of Blues, where Tupac and Nas talked about this whole beef situation. Tupac told Nas that he was in no way involved and that he should not get caught up in it because he and Death Row had nothing but love for him. But then, Tupac listened to Nas’ songs and he remarked that there was a song, “The Message”, in which Nas was talking about fake thugs and it sounded as if Nas was talking about Tupac. Nas also liked to talk a lot about Thug Life after Pac introduced it to the whole world, which pissed Tupac off because he was the man to represent it.
Tupac accused Nas of biting his style and stealing his life for his songs. Nas even has a tattoo in the same place of Tupac’s Thug Life tattoo, and wore no shirt and his bandana in a similar way to pac in the video for ‘Hate Me Now’. Tupac dissed Nas on songs like “Against all Odds” and in interviews, such as the interview about Death Row East. But after Tupac’s demise Nas claimed they squashed their beef, which is supported by the Outlawz, and Nas even featured on ‘Thugz Mansion‘ on Tupac’s posthumus album ‘Better Dayz’.

Nas – The Message
It was released during the feud between the East and West Coast. The West Coast hip hop artist 2Pac viewed the first lyrics of the song “Fake thug, no love, you get the slug, CB4 Gusto, your luck low, I didn’t know till I was drunk though” as a subliminal diss and responded in two songs from his last album whilst alive, The Don Killuminati: The 7 Day Theory: “Bomb First” and “Against All Odds”. Although the two rappers purportedly reconciled before 2Pac’s demise, 2Pac was never able to edit the lyrics against Nas due to his passing.

2Pac – Against All Odds
The final track on The 7 Day Theory, “Against All Odds” is one of the most revealing songs about the East Coast–West Coast war.
Unlike “Hit Em Up,” which was a more personal, emotional, attack on Biggie and his record label, Against All Odds is more significant in terms of the subject matter.
What repercussions 2Pac would have suffered for recording the track will never be known (“Probably be m*rdered for the sh*t that I said”) as he was k*lled before the song was released. Nevertheless, “Against All Odds” remains one of the greatest narratives of the East Coast–West Coast war.
