Public Enemy’s Flava Flav stopped by Nas’ set earlier on the tour as well.
There is a documentary showing behind the scenes footage of the show as well. Wu-Tang member had this to say about Nas on HipHop DX: “Our brother Nas, we saw something in him when he first started,” Raekwon says of his “Verbal Intercourse” collaborator. “It was something about him that took us back to our neighborhood. To be able to see that he was as young as he was at that time and really so smart and intelligent and also street at the same time, it only really took us 2.3 seconds to be like, ‘He’s golden.’
