With the filming of the late Tiupac Shakur's new video, "Thugz Mansion" currently in process, Nas spoke to MTV News about Pac and compared 2Pac to great writer, William Shakespeare. Nas had this to say during his interview:
"That was something I've been waiting to do for a long time," Nas said Monday in Atlanta on the set of the "Thugz Mansion" video. "It's a tremendous honor because I put Tupac beyond Shakespeare. Unfortunately his early demise didn't allow him to still be here and do more incredible things. The things he left are timeless. Just to be a part of that is an honor for me." - Source: MTV News.
A modified version of "Thugz Mansion" also appears on the recently leaked Nas album, "God's Son". On Nas' version, Nas drops two verses instead of just the one. The video should hit your screens on December 13th.
In related news, it's looking like 2Pac will scan 250,000 copies of his new album for the week and will trail behind Eminem's "8 Mile" soundtrack and Shania Twain's rnew album.
