Memphis Bleek is speaking out!
The rap legend shared his thoughts on a hypothetical Verzuz between Nas and Jay-Z. Memphis feels if a battle were to happen between the Queens and Brooklyn icons, Hov would win.
The Jasmine Brand reports that Memphis Bleek had an interview with sportswriter Brandon “Scoop B” Robinson spoke on it. The interviewer asked the rapper if he’d like to see Nas and Jay-Z in a Verzuz. Memphis said, “There’s no comparison. Nas doesn’t have enough songs to compete. And it’s no disrespect to him–he just don’t. Like, he just don’t. Jay can battle someone with just his B-sides concert catalogue and still be better than people’s A-side.”
B Scoop asked Memphis who could realistically go against Jigga? Memphis said it would have to be the late, Notorious B.I.G.

Check out some social media reactions:
Bleek said this. Anybody else would have to respect Nas but this is Bleek. He can say this. He has to say this. This isn’t a shocker from him.

The beef between Nas and Jay was really escalated by Bleek
When he said his album was better than that QB Finest album (he definitely has an issue with Nas, more than Jay had)

This is trash. U only need 20 songs. Nas could play both matics and beat jay. And we haven't even got into nas features bag. But what should you expect from a guy who was placed on 3rd base and found his way back to 1st.
