Nas turned a few heads when he released “Ultra Black” on his King’s Disease album. The barb caused fans to hesitate whether a Nas/Doja Cat beef would take place but Nas officially cleared the air and said it was “all love.”

“I just was really saying a rhyme that rhymed with ‘ultra black’,” Nas told Los Angeles’ Power 106 on Saturday (August 22). “I rhymed that word with ‘ultra black,’ I didn’t even think of it. It’s all love, it’s all love, you know what I’m sayin’? It was like ‘Michael Blackson black.’”

Hit-Boy added, “It literally is, Doja Cat’s the opposite of Michael Blackson. That’s how I looked at it.”

“It’s bars. It’s lines,” Nas concluded. “We play with words, man.”

“Sometimes I’m over-black, even my clothes are black/Cash Money with the white tee and the soldier rag,” Nas rapped on the song. “We going ultra black, unapologetically black/The opposite of Doja Cat, Michael Blackson black.”

Doja Cat Is Dropping A Song Called ‘N.A.S’ Following ‘Ultra Black’ Diss

The line regarding Doja Cat prompted fans to revisit the “Say So” singer’s appearances on Tiny Chat, a chatroom website known to be home to White supremacists and other radical groups. They also rediscovered a song released by Doja titled “Dindu Nuffin,” a slur used on racist message boards to discredit Black victims of police brutality. She promptly denied she was racist in an Instagram apology and many perceived Nas’ slight towards her as the Queensbridge rapper attacking her over her perceived self-hate.

In the midst of the “Ultra Black” controversy, Doja revealed she was initially unbothered by the song, asking fans if they had heard “Fruit Salad” by Australian band The Wiggles. She later gave fans an update on August 21, saying she planned on releasing a song of her own titled “N.A.S.”

“The song that I have coming out is called ‘N.A.S.,’ but only if you abbreviate it,” she said in a clip. “It’s three words. Abbreviate. Which is funny. It’s kinda nice ’cause that was before the fact. If you know what I’m talking about, you know what I’m talking about. If you don’t, you don’t.”
