MC Serch broke down to VladTV how he linked up with Nas on his debut solo album, Return of the Product, on the track “Back to the Grill Again.” Serch explained that he didn’t realize Nas was the same person who was on Main Source’s “Live and the Barbeque.” While in the studio together all night, Serch explained that Nas approached him and asked him about a label offer that he was given. From there, MC Serch detailed how he signed Nas and helped him later sign the deal for his first album, Illmatic, but added that he didn’t get any of Nas’ publishing.
