10 Other Rappers Apologizing For Their Actions


Jay-Z’s Disrespect Toward Nas Going Too Far

December 2001
Lyric: “Me and tha boy A.I. got more in Common than just ballin and rhymin/ Get It?/ More in Carmen/ I came in ya Bentley backseat/ Skeeted in Jeep/ Left condoms in tha baby seat/ Here nigga, tha gloves is off/The love is done.”

No one is immune to being afraid of their mother, including the seemingly unconquerable Hov. So when his mother told him, “That went too far,” he listened, and the very next day an apology was issued. That’s what I call omnipotence.—Abrea Armstrong

Apology: “I apologize. I felt like I didn’t think about women’s feelings or [Nas’s former girlfriend’s] feelings, or even my mom. It was really like, ‘Let me meet your level of disrespect with this level of disrespect.'”
