Irv Gotti said he once had an idea while high on ecstasy, which Nas didn’t think was a good move. [Jump to the 148:16 mark]

“When Nas was in the Crack House — and this was when I’m high as f*ck [on ecstasy], grinding my teeth — I’m telling Nas, ‘We gon’ get three tour buses. We gon’ grab you, Ja, Ashanti. We gon’ hitch a Rolls-Royce, a Ferrari, a Bentley to the back of the tour bus,'” said Gotti on Drink Champs, calling the studio the Crack House. 

“We had a show in Baltimore that night,” he went on. “I said, ‘Before we go to the show, we gon’ hit the hood and we gon’ ride through.’ I was like, ‘Yo, hood n*ggas is gonna go crazy.’ Imagine me, Nas, Ja, Ashanti and we pulling up in Rolls-Royces and eating fried chicken in the hood. That’s a moment. Anyone who gets a glimpse of that is never forgetting that.”

“So Nas was like, ‘Yo, I hear you but what if we get killed, being in the hood like that?'” Gotti explained. “This is when I lost him. I said, ‘If we get killed, then we martyrs, n*gga.'”
