The big question circulating the streets and internet is will Nas respond to 50 Cent's comments on his diss track, "Piggy Bank." So far Jadakiss, and Fat Joe have responded, but so far no response from Nas.
With the question looming over his head, the Queensbridge rapper has been addressing the situation via British publications, and most recently was asked during his U.K. tour last week, but left it up in the air.
"Of course, there are a lot of people waiting for me to make this next record and go after 50," Nas explained to MTV. "If it's meant to be, it'll happen. I don't think it's really that deep. We all love hip-hop. It drives people crazy, 'Come on, come on! Respond with something! Respond!' You gotta chill and let us do our thing. People are gonna talk, the media is going be like 'Nas do this, do that.' At the end of the day, I'm the one that goes into the studio and lays it down. You gotta wait."
"To sum it all up, 50 is still a new artist," he continued. "I would say he's got a good five to six more albums before I can really respond to him. With my other battles, it was different. This is not really my thing right here. I would say he needs about five to six more albums."
When MTV asked Nas about being called out on "Piggy Bank," he responded calmly, and simply stated it was a "big publicity stunt," and that's "just hip-hop music."
