    nah, if you were an uploader back then, Nas' team just actively blocks leaks on youtube by submitting them early, sometimes without any metadata or title, but just the song snippets themselves

    Nasty (Nas song) - Wikipedia

    Nasty, the single was available almost a year before LIG dropped and by then, there were a lot of snippets of LIG songs on mixtapes but people didn't hear them because it was blocked on youtube but was available on datpiff and other blogs when they were popular...Nas' team still pays youtube to actively block LIG snippets til this day. The reason that only the Mass Appeal channel can upload the Life is like a Dice Game remake is because they are also actively blocking that on youtube, even way after it was no longer a spotify exclusive. Youtube takes a subscription fee to block certain songs off their platform and Nas' team need to stop paying youtube for blocking old songs already...someone needs to do a better accounting job by redacting their old blocks off youtube already when LIG snippets are from a decade ago, still blocked off youtube

    Why would Nas and his team STOP the blocks on bootlegging his music when Life Is Good is still actively part of his catalogue :dahell:

    eh, someone has the bootleg recording of the LIG listening party of sampler songs that never made the album and it's blocked off youtube...oh well

    whenever there is a leak, the internet can't handle itself and write 'sour grapes' comments like this or try to monetize shyt with clickbait.....that's why DJs like Mike Nice or Rhude who have unreleased Nas tracks are reserved about releasing Nas mixtapes because the few who do speak up ruin it for the many so they never come out

    The point is technically they SHOULDN’T come out. If Nas didn’t want it released and doesn’t stand to gain monetarily from their availability then I don’t see any problem with Nas protecting what is essentially HIS intellectual property.


    Nas is one who suffered leaks of both Illmatic and most devastatingly I Am which fukked up his Double Album plans.

    If DJ Rhude or any other leaks unreleased songs then so be it. But if Nas stops them or anyone from doing so he is well within his rights

    Bro this some entitled shyt to think a nikka don’t got the right to block unreleased shyt from dropping where HE HIMSELF can’t even profit off it. If u a true fan of Nas u would want to see him win. This type of shyt don’t help him win. That leaked Pac diss caused a bunch of unnecessary turmoil surrounding his name. I know u don’t think it’s a big deal but that shyt was some he chose not to release for a reason. Trust me I understand and I’m def gonna listen to any leak that drops. But I also understand why he would block it as well. Nas has artistically and financially suffered from leaks in the past.
