Nas comes after Doja Cat following her self-hatred controversy, taking shots at her on his new song “Ultra Black.”
Nas is proud to be a Black man. He’s shouting it from the rooftops in his new song “Ultra Black.” With a new album on the way, the legendary rapper released the new song last night to ease us into his third full-length in as many years. If you listened carefully, or even not too intently, you likely heard that he came after one of the genre’s rising stars, Doja Cat, addressing her self-hatred controversy in his lyrics.
You’ll recall people trying to cancel Doja Cat because of her previous comments about the texture of her hair, as well as her presence in alt-right “incel” type chatrooms. She has been targeted by several main characters in hip-hop but this is probably the lowest she’ll get as one of the greats has just about dissed her for allegedly struggling to accept her identity as a Black woman.
In his lyrics, Nas calls out Doja, saying: “We goin’ ultra black, unapologetically black/The opposite of Doja Cat, Michael Blackson black.”
Do you think this was meant as a diss? The inclusion of Michael Blackson’s name directly after muddies it all up but still, she can’t be happy to be used as an example in a Nas song. Many on Twitter seemed to be going back in forth about the line. Peep those reactions along with Doja’s below.
