I have no problem with him doing that, he does have some past dope verses so why not sample himself.

Well Nas Is Like was produced by Premo, and hes quite known for using samples of rappers.. But I understand Nas sampling himself, if I could write lyrics like those I would remind everybody of them all the time haha

LOL, we can tell the same bout Mos Def (Mathematics) and Big L (Big Picture), they were both biting their own lyrics... Or, maybe, we should kill Premo for inventing that shit? Think about it.

OK, sampling, biting, whatever. They gotta be fucking non-creative MC's, RBX-sort, speaking same line in 8 songs. Is that right? They gotta be fucking dumb if they unable to write their own chorus, so they sample their former lyrics right? This is what the dumb thread-starter thought, and then y'all wanna kill me because of ONE fucking missed word. Btw y'all knew I mean.

Goddamn, and then I get this kind of diminishing intelligence shit.
