One Love

Nas surprised everyone by announcing his reconciliation with Jay Z in the most public way possible: onstage at a massively promoted concert in 2005. Jay called out Nas midset and the two performed "Black Republican" (from Nas' then unreleased Hip-Hop Is Dead album) to an ecstatic crowd. The two later made their new alliance even more official when Hov, who was then president of Def Jam, signed Nas to the iconic label.
