The QB don used to forget his lines, but can you blame them? He’s lost multiple rhyme books over the years. Here, he recalls losing one during the illmatic sessions, where he wrote his name and address with a reward offer to for the return. The book eventually made its way back to Queensbridge. Nas thinks he paid the returner (at the five-minute he talks about writing a check out) but he know for certain he promptly lost the book again. He’d pay much more now than he did then, per the interview with Zane Lowe; the pair revisit the making of the classic album.
