VIDEO: Lil Boosie says Nas and Jay Z are irrelevant in today's rap music during interview on Vlad TV

Information reaching Kossyderrickent has it that Lil Boosie says Nas and Jay Z are irrelevant in today's rap music during interview on Vlad TV.

Boosie Badazz has thoughts on Jay-Z and Nas’ status in the game.

The Baton Rouge artist caused a stir this week when he addressed 21 Savage’s controversial comments about Nas. The drama began when 21 participated in a Clubhouse chat that questioned whether Nasir was the greatest rapper of all time. Though he acknowledged the Queens native as a legendary MC, the Savage Mode rapper wasn’t convinced he’s relevant among the younger generation. 

“What y’all saying relevant, though? I don’t feel like he’s relevant. I just feel like he got fans. … He’s not relevant. He just has a loyal-ass fan base and he still make good-ass music,” said 21 in mid-November. Just yesterday he and Nas united on the track “One Mic One Gun,” where Savage raps, “When you turn a legend, no such thing as relevance/They must’ve forgot that I’m a new rapper that got integrity.” Nas wrote that they’re moving forward “with love, respect, and unity.”

Boosie weighed in on the comments during a sit-down with VladTV, saying he understood where 21 was coming from.

“[Nas] just won a Grammy at that age, last year. His records are still doing great,” Boosie explained, saying he believed 21 was measuring relevance by social media presence. “He’s definitely relevant to his fanbase. He’s still making music, he’s still doing that, then he’s still relevant. I think [21] was looking at it on a young n***a’s perspective.”

DJ Vlad agreed Nas was legendary, but pointed out doesn’t dominate the charts and has failed to compete with bigger artists like 21, Drake, and Taylor Swift. 

“I just can’t say he’s relevant as far as today’s [music]. … He doesn’t have a Taylor Swift machine behind him,” Boosie said. “I’m telling you. Nas is great, but he doesn’t have the machine, or he’s not listening to the machine that can make him do more numbers.”

Vlad went on to say that it’s difficult for a rapper to stay on top after the age of 50, but he believes 52-year-old Jay-Z is one of the few exceptions.

Boosie disagreed. “Jay-Z’s not relevant these days for music,” he said. “I don’t. If you’re gonna say Jay-Z is relevant and Nas ain’t relevant? No.”


“Jay-Z’s not relevant this day for music… If you gone say Jay-Z relevant and Nas ain’t relevant—No, no,” Boosie said on VLAD TV.  

He continued, “When I go to these clubs in Atlanta, you know these 25 to 35 clubs, I’m not hearing Nas, I’m not hearing Jay-Z… It’s not one or the other.” However, the “Set It Off” hitmaker says Hov maintains cultural relevance because he’s a Hip-Hop mogul.  

“Jay-Z is respected by these people for being that boss that he is. When Jay-Z flash across that m########### it’s something with a billion dollars, its something with $500 billion, $200 billion when them young n##### see him. It ain’t his song flashing across social media. It’s his hustle! That n#### got hustle!” Boosie stated.

When the debate shifted to Nas, Boosie said the Kings Disease creator is relevant, acknowledging his recent Grammy win, but only amongst his fans. However, he added, “half of them are dead. All them n##### in Queens bro, most of all of Nas and Pac fans, they’re dead.” 

“I just can’t say he’s relevant as far as today’s [music]. … He doesn’t have a Taylor Swift machine behind him,” Boosie explained. “I’m telling you. Nas is great, but he doesn’t have the machine, or he’s not listening to the machine that can make him do more numbers.” 

Boosie is following in the steps of 21 Savage, whose comments about Nas being irrelevant amongst the current generation of rappers had social media in a frenzy. However, despite the backlash, it worked out well for the “Knife Talk” hitmaker. Just two weeks after sparking outrage, he dropped the surprise single “One Mic One Gun” with Nas. (Read More Here).
