Messageboard From January 2001 Discussing The Death Of Escobar Album

Here's the link to the message board

Here's some more info if you don't understand what they're talking about.

The Death of Escobar (abbreviated as D.O.E.) is a 2001 unreleased concept album by New York-based rapper Nas. The title is a reference to Nas's alternative persona of Nas Escobar, which was seen as a much more mainstream appealing alter ego by fans.

For over a decade, much information about the album was unknown. Pictures of the purported album had surfaced through the internet for a decade and had a barcode provided as well, which meant that there was planned distribution for the album. Nonetheless, for years, the album was debated by hip hop heads for years, whether it was the working title for Nas's eventual December 2001 release Stillmatic, a cancelled concept album, or was a fan-made fake.

In 2014, The Lost Tapes Blog, run by claaa7, revealed that in fact, the album was real, and was intended to be the first part of the Stillmatic album, but was cancelled before it was released, and instead re-released, and re-titled, as The Lost Tapes in 2002.

Notes:

This was 50 Cent's intended debut on a major album; the song "Projects Too Hot" would appear on his 2002 solo Guess Who's Back.

"Poppa Was a Playa" was one of Kanye West's first major productions.

    When you read the comments they don't seem to be saying that Nas fell off.

    “Death Anniversary“
    This was my 🤬 !!

    What if I told you that AZ didn't exist
    And I put him there, played it like a ventriloquist
    Cause 🤬 spit fake 🤬 and y'all respect it
    I spit that real 🤬 and y'all won't buy the record
    What if me and the rapper 🤬 was really cool
    And we used that whole thing as a media tool
    Would you say I was a sucka or say I was savvy
    If I told you 🤬 's that me and K wasn't married?
    What if Jungle wrote my 🤬 and I'm really illiterate
    And the whole Nas catalog was just an experiment
    What if I really died when Ill Will got shot
    This is Will rhyming right now while Nas is chilling with 'Pac
    What If I did all the advertisements thrown my way
    And I've 🤬 every chick that would throw me some play
    I'd have to load another AK cause 🤬 be jealous
    Cause we real like them Brazil favelas..


    Verse 2

    Scream at the 🤬 "breathe don't breathe your last breath"
    But you know a 🤬 dead when he 🤬 on himself
    Blatter giving up on 'em, face start to puff on 'em
    Bloating up, 🤬 cold as 🤬 , trying hold on 'em
    Loosen up the nine out of his fingers
    Angels coming only he can hear the psalms that they're singing
    And it hurts me, the planets cursed, B
    This your 🤬 first year anniversary
    This how it goes down in every ghetto
    So it's quite natural for rappers to settle
    And make pop music, nursery hooks
    Cause back then we thought the only thing that worked was the jooks
    They're tryna 🤬 a game that done pimped them first
    I'm pimping the industry so they acknowledge our worth
    The next anniversary we all unite
    Let's all get together or we're loosing the fight

    This isn't real

    I remember on July 4, 1999 I was on Martha's Vineyard (a small island off the coast of Massachusetts) with my friends from high school. One of my homies had a mixtape of all unreleased Nas songs. I can't say for sure that it was the Death Of Escobar album, but there were mix tapes in that era of unreleased Nas songs.

    This is false. A lot of those tracks were from the I Am...The Autobiography leaked album from the late 90s.

    Those songs were from the scrapped double album follow up to It Was Written.

    It’s not “you don’t know me (hardest thing to do)”, those are two different tracks, hardest thing to do was scrapped from the I am album and you don’t know me came later I’m pretty sure that’s Kelis on the hook
