Nastradamus is the fourth studio album by American rapper Nas. It was originally scheduled to be released as a follow-up album composed of material from recording sessions for his third album, I Am… [MOVLP1643]. Due to bootlegging of the material, Nas decided to record all new material under the title Nastradamus to meet its November 1999 release date.
The album includes one of the earliest shots fired in the soon-to-be epic Jay-Z/Nas feud. On Nastradamus’ title track, Nas raps “You wanna ball till you fall? / I can help you with that / You want beef? / I could let a slug melt in your hat”. The album also includes the single “You Owe Me” featuring Ginuwine.
Achieving commercial success, the album was certified Platinum in sales by the RIAA, went to #2 on the US Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart followed by chart positions in Germany and Holland.
