Irv Gotti has admitted that he may have taken the wrong side during the infamous Jay-Z/Nas feud of the early 2000s. The former Murder Inc. CEO had a close relationship with Jay-Z, but made a move to bring Nas over to his label during the heated beef.
Irv says he has no regrets, but believes things should've played out differently.
“I shouldn’t have did that with Nas. It was a mistake. Because above and beyond the music, Hov is my man. In front of MTV, I would shed blood for Hov. If I see Hov, I will get right in the mix of things,” Gotti said. “I should have never done that. But he knew it. He’s one of the smartest dudes, and he knew it. He said, that ambition. I said, yeah. If it means me going in them history books, I don’t care. I’m weird like that. That’s how bad I want it.”
