Nas Begged Large Professor To Executive Produce The Album But He Refused

“I wanted him to executive-produce that record, but he told me that I had to do it on my own,” explained Nas. “I was like, ‘Please! Executive produce my album.’ And he said, ‘Yo, my shit isn’t even straight.’”

What Extra P was referring to was the messy breakup with his group Main Source that he was going through at the time. Large Professor would go on say that he wasn’t interested in signing Nas and that he wanted Nas to go out and make his own money.
