    yeah, it's true, I don't think it leaked to the public yet, but fuck the neptunes. they make great music, but they some really greedy bastards, leaving their label and dropping all their artists off star trak so everyone has to drop 125 thou for a beat (while primo charges 30). it's that strictly business mentality that's corruptin' the game nowadays. peace

    I'm predicting this beat's gonna blow, I'm really not feeling alot of the Neptune's beats. Its alot of corny shit.

    If Premier only charges 30 K per beat, Nas could have a whole fuckin album of classic beats for the price he paid on that Neptunes beat

    WTF

    I really doubt that 2 million dollar beat story

    he reportedly paid 2 million dollars for the track.

    and even if it's true, it's the worst career move ever

    Nas get the fuck away from Neptunes. 30,000 for a primo beat? Fucking A he can make a classic album for $360,000.

    Best tracks are World is Yours and Memory Lane, followed by NY State of Mind. I still to this day cannot stand "It Aint Hard to Tell." But meanwhile everyone says One Time for Ya Mind is the weakest track but that track amazes me every single time.
