Imagine If Nas Would Have Hung Jay-Z At Summer Jam 2002?
Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at what Nas was cooking up in 2002 for his Summer Jam performance, which was a robot figure representation of Jay-Z who would be hung on stage that year from gallows. “Hov” would be controlled from a computer, with each movement animated —right before the trap door opened and plunged him to his “death.”
Ultimately, Nas didn’t perform at Summer Jam and took his talents to Power 105, started beef between rival stations and added fuel to his own Jay-Z beef.
So now that we look back, it’s like “The Day That Never Happened.”
