The former Juice Crew member took to Instagram this week to issue a public apology to his fellow New York native, which comes after he apparently received an angry phone call from someone in Nas’ camp.
“You know a real man stand on that real man shit, so what I have to do right now is stand on some shit, and I gotta suck this shit up,” Shan began. “I gotta give a big apology to Nas because I listened to folks that don’t even know they’re talking about him like that.
“But now I get a call — y’all seen it on a last video — and he got mad because they got something going on. And he got mad that it was out and he said, ‘Nah, we can’t do that…we gotta do a 50/50 deal, so take it down until we talk to Shan.'”
He continued: “I love you, my n-gga. I have not stopped loving you. It’s just because of what the fuck these folks was saying and these magazines trying to drag me through the mud, my n-gga. But all I’m gonna say to you as a fucking man, I apologize for stepping outside of my character when I should have muthafucking thought of it as a businessman.”
Shan clarified in the caption: “I HAVE TO NOT SAY IM SORRY BECAUSE IM NOT A SORRY N-GGA BUT MORE ALONG THE LINES OF I JUMP THE GUN .. SO @NAS ACCEPT THIS I JUMP THE GUN REAL MAN I FUCKED UP.”
In a separate post, the 57-year-old revealed that he had received a phone call from Mass Appeal CEO Peter Bittenbender, and implied that an unspecified business deal was being discussed with the company.
“REMEMBER I SAID @NAS DONT FUCK WIT ME HOW WRONG I WAS THAT N-GGA NAS FUCK WIT ME THE LONG WAY,” he wrote in the caption. “BEHIND THE SCENE WHEN NOBODYS LOOKIN .. REAL N-GGA SHIT THATS A N-GGA THAT FUC WIT YOU WHEN THEY DO IT BEHIND THE SCENES NOT FOR PROPS NOT FOR KUDOS .. I JUST DONT ANSWER PHONES AND GOT THE MESSAGE A WEEK TO LATE LOLOLOL.”

MC Shan tore into Nas back in July, telling the King’s Disease rapper that he better keep his name out of his mouth if he’s not going to invite him to partake in any of the Hip Hop 50 celebrations that he helped organized.
“I’m sitting here hearing that Nas is doing these muthafuckin’ 50th anniversary shows, right?” he said at the time. “Nas, if you doing 50th anniversary shows and you ain’t holla at ya mans, let me tell you something, my n-gga, don’t never mention my muthafuckin’ name again. Don’t put my name in ya mouth about nothing, n-gga.”
He continued: “See, I’m not one of them n-ggas that’s fucking glorified by n-ggas with money. I could give a fuck how much money a n-gga got. N-gga, you put your pants on one leg at a time like men n-gga. I ain’t glorified by the shit you have.
“But I’m looking at it like this, n-gga: if you gettin’ n-ggas money on the 50th of Hip Hop, and you glorify me and say, ‘Yo, Shan this,’ and you ain’t call me and say, ‘Yo, Shan, I see what you doing, n-gga.’ “I done did a show with you muthafucka, but if you ain’t call me and that whole roster is full, n-gga, don’t never mention my mothafuckin’ name.”
Mass Appeal — which Nas is a key player in — has also been spearheading a range of Hip Hop 50 celebrations including concerts, documentaries, musical releases and exhibitions.
