Nas has insisted that he has no beef with Doja Cat following the release of his recent single “Ultra Black.”
On the song, which is a collaboration with producer Hit-Boy, the Queensbridge rapper appeared to diss Doja Cat with the lyric:
Sometimes I’m over-black, even my clothes are black/ Cash Money with the white tee and the soldier rag / We goin’ ultra black, unapologetically black / The opposite of Doja Cat, Michael Blackson black.Nas
Now, Nas has insisted his diss was just a play on words.
I just was really saying a rhyme that rhymed with ‘Ultra Black’. I rhymed that word with ‘ultra black,’ I didn’t even think of it. It’s all love, it’s all love, you know what I’m sayin’? It was like ‘Michael Blackson black.’Nas
It literally is, Doja Cat’s the opposite of Michael Blackson. That’s how I looked at it.Hit-Boy
Last week, Doja Cat revealed that she is planning to drop a track, with the acronym N.A.S. Fans speculated that there could be a few choice words in it for the New York rapper.
