However, as the rapper and his cohorts discussed relevancy in the culture, the conversation led to controversial commentary on Nass status in hip-hop. Though hes considered a titan with one of the strongest pens in the history of the genre, the Her Loss rapper suggested that Gods Son wasnt relevant. I dont feel like hes relevant, he said over the call. I just feel like he got a loyal fan base. He still makes good music. The comment then prompted the co-host to ask 21 to define relevance. Mostly connected or appropriate to whats being done to be considered, he then said in response. Though many began pushing back against what 21 was saying, another participant compared the reception to Kings Disease III to Jay-Zs verse on God Did. The Hov verse had the internet in shambles while Nass didnt necessarily have the same impact. Nonetheless, the latest release from Nasir Jones proves that hes still a master of his craft with plenty of things to say, nearly 30 years after the release of his debut album, Illmatic. 21 Savage calls Nas irrelevant on Clubhouse and says he just has a loyal fanbase.

His new collaborative effort with Drake shot to the top of the Billboard 200 with 404K units an impressive feat for both the Toronto superstar and the Atlanta rapper. Still, fans believe that 21 Savage might be gassed up due to the recent successes. 21 Savage was on club house talking about how Nas is not relevant I swear this album he did with Drake is going straight to his crooked ass nose (@JAESREVENGE) November 14, 2022 Another wrote, 21 Savage said Nas is irrelevant. Its funny because Nas at 49 years old just released 4 better quality albums than his whole discography. But its even funnier when 21 Savage is being relevant exclusively thanks to Drake in the last year. 21 Savage said Nas is irrelevant.
