In addition to being JAY-Z's protégé, Bleek explained what led him to the beef in the first place.

Joined the fight, Bleek had as a goal to Nas with his 2000 single "My Mind", with lyrics alluding to Nas 1996 it Was Written album.

"And only a few fit in, your lifestyle's written/ So who you supposed to be, play your position," he hit.
