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.

Im rollin with the Pablo story, it was like 1991 when he got killed right, only a few years before Illmatic
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.

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.
The cuban influenced that whole era

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
