This is the 3rd leak (The Message & Soul Dreams) off my upcoming Nas tribute project It Was Rewritten, entitled “Verbal Shootouts”. It Was Rewritten (Mixtape) dropping in late September.
“Nas’ “Shoototus” was really vivid and story telling at it’s best. His approach was breaking down situations that led to actual shootouts.. My version is a verbal shootout between God & I.. Like, I’m nice with it lyrically, but God is like “yeah but I gave you that gift so what you going to do with it!” A conversation I have with Him all the time before I put the pen to that pad. Mello & I still tried to stay true to the original though.” – Devine Carama
