“I thought it was going to be a lot of weed smoking, like bitches on the bus, but Nas was reading books and shit,” Yayo remembered. “I'm going up for Illmatic, ‘I‘m a addict for sneakers, 20's of Buddha and bitches with beepers,' so I thought we was going to be smoking hella weed and bitches going to be running through that shit.”

He added, “But he was kind of like a laid-back cat reading books and shit, so I was just like, ‘That's Nas, this muthafucka is reading books, and shit.' [He] really wasn't smoking too much weed on the bus that was more of Jungle and them thing, but Nas is one of them smart muthafuckas, and I see how he come with the lines.”
