Beyoncé Throws Big Shade At Nas & The Internet Can't Agree If She’s Being Real Or Petty — Receipts Inside

Did Queen Bey turn into Queen Petty?

Beyoncé and Jay-Z dropped their surprise album one day after Nas released his latest project, Nasir, on Friday. 

Of course, the internet has been cracking jokes at how Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s album, Everything Is Love, is getting more attention than the release from Jay-Z’s former rival. 

Nas’ last album Life is Good dropped in 2012 so to see his time in the spotlight quickly taken away from the Hip-Hop’s King & Queen is funny considering all of the tea.

Fans believe they caught Beyoncé trolling Nas after she allegedly liked a post about the timing of their album release.


She reportedly quickly un-liked the funny tweet about Nas but fans captured screenshots of her petty move. 

The tweet shared by @sagemyster featuring an old image of Nas staring at a laptop, captioned "'...how they upload the album so fast, yo?'"



Fans were rather shocked over Bey's actions, noting that the shady 'like' was the only one from her account.


People took notice and many joked that Beyoncé forgot to switch to an undercover account before liking the post. Others suggested Blue Ivy was playing on Bey's computer or her phone.



Fans of Nas and Jay may recall that the rapper were previously beefing, but made later made amends.

In 1996, Nas was one of the biggest names in rap when he asked Jay-Z to contribute a verse to his track, "Reasonable Doubt."

Nas never made it to the studio and producer Ski Beatz sampled a line from the Nas track "The World is Yours" on Jay's "Dead Presidents II" as revenge for the alleged snub. 

That move led Nas to make a subtle jab at Hov on "The Message" that year with the line, "Lex with TV sets the minimum." 



Nas later explained the line to Complex. He shared, "I saw Jay-Z driving a Lexus with the TVs in them. I got rid of my Lexus at that point and I was looking for the next best thing. ... It wasn't necessarily a shot at him but ... he definitely inspired that line."

Jay-Z took the beef to a whole new level during an appearance at Hot 97's Summer Jam concert in 2001. He premiered a track called "Takeover", commenting, "Ask Nas, he don't want it with Hov. No!" 


Nas responded to the diss with "Stillmatic," where he called Jay a "fake King of New York" and the "rapping version of Sisqo."

Nas went on to release "Ether," where he compared Jay-Z to the Joe Camel cigarette mascot and to J.J. "Dy-No-Mite!" Evans from Good Times. "You a fan, a phony, a fake, a [expletive], a stan/ I still whip your [expletive], you 36 in a karate class," he rapped.

Jay-Z hit back with the freestyle, "Supa Ugly," where he rapped about sleeping with Carmen Bryan, the mother of Nas' daughter, Destiny. 

Jay's mother, Gloria, heard to diss and demanded that her son apologize to Nas and his family. He obliged the following day. 

In October 2005, Jay shocked fans when he brought Nas out on stage as a special guest. The men performed "Dead Presidents" and "The World Is Yours" together. 


Nas even went on to sign with Jay's Def Jam label, after his deal with Columbia was up. 


Sources close to Nas recently revealed that he has no issue with the timing of Jay and Beyoncé’s album being release.


Nas doesn't believe their album will take away from his work, especially after Nasir already topped the Apple Music chart. 

Do you think Bey was caught shading Nas?
