Nas’ Plan To Lynch Fake Jay-Z At Summer Jam ’02: Video Surfaces

By Carter Maness

With all of the controversy about Nicki Minaj’s cancelled performance at this year’s Summer Jam, stories of the old feud between the festival’s host, Hot 97, and the eventual 2012 headliner, Nas, have resurfaced. And this week there’s actual footage of Nas’ planned attack against Jay-Z.

Back in 2002, as a stunt in his beef with Jay-Z, Nas planned to lynch a fake Hova during his headlining set. Only a year before, Jay had unveiled his classic diss track “The Takeover” on the very same stage, and Nas wanted to one-up him with a controversial, unforgettable and highly-questionable attack on his character.
