Along with Nas being added to the list of guests, Jay-Z had appeared on the show as well.

On the album’s affect when it first came out Nas said,

“There are a lot of friends of mine who had albums that came out around this time and for some reason, there’s a difference. I’m really proud of this. It holds up really well because the content is relevant today.”
