    unless the Wu had anything to do with Pablo Escobar, then I think Nas probably got the name from the notorious colombian drug lord, to be fair.





    But who knows. Maybe im wrong. Maybe it did come from the Wu. They are Wu Tang after all right.

    lol DEJA VU WAS MADE IN 1993, BEFORE INFAMOUS AND BEFORE CUBAN LINX

    Cuz, the Deja Vu is the first track he used the Esco persona, and it is, still, my fav. Nas song.

    Five hundred SL green, ninety-five nickle gleam
    Condominium, thug dressed like a gentleman

    Shank is servin em, whassup to all my niggaz swervin in
    New York metropolis, the Bridge brings apocalypse
    Shoot at the clouds feels like, the holy beast is watchin us
    Mad man my sanity is goin like an hourglass
    Gun inside my bad hand I sliced tryin to bag grams
    I got hoes that used to milk you
    Niggaz who could've killed you
    Is down with my ill crew of psychoes
    NAS ESCOBAR movin on your weak production
    Pumpin corruption in the third world we just bustin

    True indeed, rep points for that...

    I know Wera's just joking, but this has me puzzled. On one side, it could be that I just never heard him (it was '94, Finesse all over the place), on the other side it's emperorles.

    Uh, that is incorrect about " Joey Crack ". "Crack" is Fat Joes Tag name. Which he was using waaaaaay before he was rapping OK? Get it right . Im from the South Bronx. My grandfather had a indoor parking garage on 147th St between Brook Ave. and St. Ann's and Fat Joe use to Tag up the area as if there was no tomorrow. I first remember seeing "CRACK" tagged on buildings back in the 80's.

    can someone please point out on deja vu where nas claims to be "nas escobar".... im not talkin slang prostitution im talkin about this nigga actually referencing himself as "NAS ESCOBAR"

    the point is, on only built, to be on that album it was mandatory to have a wu gambino name.... so who really gives a fuck who named him nas escobar... for that album he was nas escobar and even if tha infamous came out before only built, wu was still featured on tha joint... it may just b one of those things we will always dwell on but no one will truly know the origin...unless he speaks on it himself
