In this throwback clip from Rugged Entertainment’s Peter Spirer, Nas discusses the time he spent in his childhood hanging out with good friend Willie Graham, who everyone called Ill Will. The Queensbridge rapper says him and his friend spent countless hours recording themselves rhyming and messing around on turntables. “If it was raining outside, we’d spend the whole day just f*cking around, know what I’m saying, “he recalled of the time spent with Ill Will.

Nas also touches on Ill Will getting ambushed by a girl’s family and shot in the back, and later how he named his label, Ill Will Records, in honor of his slain friend. – Vlad TV
