The Name Game
“Nasty Nas” was a name many knew from the Queens rapper’s extensive catalogue. Interestingly enough, prior to being Nas, his original name was Nasty.
J.Cole actually had a name which would have been suitable for his career. He originally had the name of Therapist, which would have made sense because of his storytelling abilities.
Unlike J.Cole, Pusha T’s name was borderline insipid. He initially had the name of “Terror,” and we’re glad he changed it because, Terror sounded like a trash name from an aspiring struggle rapper.
