Clip of Nas Hanging Jay-Z in Effigy Surfaces Online
A new video of Nas hanging a Jay-Z dummy onstage has surfaced online. NME reports that the ten year-old clip dates back to Nas and Jay’s feud in the ’00s. Nas had the dummy commissioned by a special effects designed and was planning to do the hanging at Hot ’97 Summer Jam in 2002, but when organizers found out, they banned him from staging it which led him to pull out.
The feud ended in 2006 when Nas signed with Def Jam, which Jay was president of at the time.
