    Nas would only collab with Drake to improve his low album sales
    Face it he needs the exposure
    If a poppy sounding artist is getting the limelight even if he’s mediocre at best collaboration by an elder in the game could only do good

    Look at Em with TI Lil Wayne and now Drake

    It’s a cool easy way to link with little young idiots who support this low substance rap music to be relevant

    Look at jay half of BP3 has young upcoming “Hot” artists on it
    Since his return from retirement His collaborations with the slew of young new commercial artists has skyrocketed!!!

    Reharding Nas
    Just no overkill
    we would just skip the collab (with any o f these type of mediocre rappers)on the album and enjoy the rest of his lyrically skilled tracks

    stop hating on God’s Son for that move
