Where's The Beef? On Nas' 2004 album entitled, Street's Disciple there was a song on the first disc called, "These Are Our Heroes." In it, Nas raps about "Uncle Toms" in black popular culture. He dedicates the second verse to Kobe and his Colorado case while also defending his friend Shaq. We don't even want to repeat what Nasty said. You'll have to listen for yourself. We're not sure if these two squashed the beef, but Nas did perform at the 2012 USA Men's Basketball team's gold medal party and they were in this photo together. Who knows?
