Nas thinks he and Frank Ocean could have made a “great” record.
The pair had collaborated on a track believed to be called ‘No Such Thing as White Jesus’ but producer Hit-Boy lost the digital recordings and the song was never completed, but Nas thinks it would have been hugely successful had it ever been released.
“I’ve talked about a song with Frank Ocean about a year and a half before anybody worked with him and since then it’s been a heavily anticipated record, but I didn’t talk about which song actually.
“Now, I’ve talked about us working and we never got to that point, completing a great record. Who knows? I guess it would’ve been a big record if it ever came to light.”
The lyrics were: Frank previously revealed some lyrics he said were intended for the song.
“Whatever you do, young king, don’t wind up dead
Young queen, cross your legs
Put a crown on your head and remove the chains
‘Cause even diamond chains are for slaves
Don’t set foot in no penitentiary and don’t taste the poison/
Don’t you bail on your families.”
