21 Savage has provoked a reaction from Nas’ brother Jungle, after he questioned the King’s Disease III rapper’s relevancy.

During a recent Clubhouse chat titled “Is Nas the Greatest Rapper or What?,” 21 suggested that Nas isn’t relevant despite his recent prolific output. “What y’all saying relevant, though?” asked 21. “I don’t feel like he’s relevant. I just feel like he got fans. … He’s not relevant. He just has a loyal ass fan base and he still make good-ass music.”

Following the success of his collaborative album with Drake, the Atlanta-raised rapper hasn’t minced his words when it comes to his place in the world of hip-hop. In an appearance with Twitch streamer Kai Cenat, he recently doubled down on his belief that he could beat any of the artists featured on the XXL Freshman Class of 2016 in a Verzuz-style showdown. The list included Lil Uzi Vert, Lil Yachty, Denzel Curry, G Herbo, Dave East, Lil Dicky, Desiigner, Anderson .Paak, and Kodak Black, who he said he’d easily “smoke” 21 in a battle.
