*Nas, who appears with Future on DJ Esco’s track “Walk Thru,” is calling on all rappers to put aside their pettiness and unify.

“Today’s game is as big as it gets. It seems like nobody gettin along tho. It’s a big enough game to do what you do and let ya talent speak for itself,” Nas writes in a detailed caption alongside a post promoting the track from Esco’s new album “Kolorblind.”

Nas goes on to reference Lonzo Ball calling Migos and Future real hip-hop and saying, “Don’t nobody listen to Nas no more.”

“This new cat over here says something bad about Pac. This older guy gets mad at the new guy. Or ‘Nas ain’t hip-hop. Migos and Future are Hip Hop,” Nas quips.

The artist, born Nasir Jones, then mentions how white musicians from various genres are coming together to collaborate for the good of music. “Neil Diamond x Jack White have a Concert coming up together. Gettin it done,” he says. “White musicians have that freedom and are praised for coming together… more power to them and I’m a fan of it.”

Nas wraps the missive by calling for the unification of black artists in hip-hop. “Why can’t black artists do that and make it cool? We are all artists, let’s all evolve together. Walk With Me. WALK THRU,” he concludes.
