What happened?: Maybe before Nas hit the "send" button on his now-infamous email he took inspiration from Playaz Circle's "Dear Mr. L.A. Reid," a song from their 2007 debut album, Supply & Demand. Although the song doesn't dis L.A. Reid per se, it does touch on how no one believed in them until "Duffle Bag Boy" became a smash, which sounds like Def Jam to us.
Complex says: We're not mad at L.A. Reid for not believing in Playaz Circle. After all, they ultimately became one-hit wonders anyway.
