One Mic One Gun
Nas & 21 Savage
Instead of bickering with one another, Nas and 21 Savage decided to make a record together called “One Mic One Gun.”
A couple of weeks ago, 21 Savage went on Clubhouse and said that Nas wasn’t “relevant.” 21’s comments sparked uproar amongst the hip-hop community, eventually provoking him to reclarify his stance. For those of you that thought that Nas would have an issue with 21, the good news is this: They decided to join forces for a new collaboration track called “One Mic One Gun.”
On the real, “One Mic One Gun” is all about growth. In the song, both 21 Savage and Nas rap about being kings, ignoring rumors, investing, and reaching greatness. While 21 Savage uses a sly, laidback style of rapping over the celebratory Hit-Boy-produced beat, Nas uses a style that sounds upbeat and energetic. If I were to guess, in the studio, Nas had 21 in a friendly headlock while he was laying down his raps.
I love it when rappers take a mature approach to squashing tension.
