“Kelis said her milkshake bring all the boys to the yard, then Nas went and tatooed the bitch on his arm.” During the height of his feud with Nas, 50 Cent uttered this line in his diss record, “Piggy Bank.” This song was released in 2005. At that time, Nas and Kelis were the hottest couple in hip hop, aside from Jay-Z and Beyonce.
The happy days did not last long. Before the end of 2008, it was revealed that the marriage between Nas and Kelis was on the rocks. There were hopes and rumors of reconciliation, but by 2009, it was clear that they could not reconcile. Nas was said to make $200,000 a month and Kelis wants $75,000 of that for child support.
Through all of the rumors and the discussion about their divorce, Nas has remained silent. Not only has their issue been exposed to the entire world for anyone to see, but it has also become one of the many running jokes. Now, Nas has decided to participate in the joking. All of the pressure from Kelis has taken a toll on his recording process. For nearly two years, he has been in and out of the studio with Damian Marley creating a new album.
Now, official recordings from this album are finally being leaked. The latest leaked recording is “Strong We Will Continue.” There is one line on this track that states it all. Rapped by Nas, it goes “how in the hell am I supposed to stay comfy when I pay child support monthly?” With that line, he goes in on all of the stress that his ex-wife has put him through over the past few years.
