Rush & Molloy of the New York Daily News got reaction from Hot-97 program director Tracy Cloherty on Nas decision not to perform because the rapper wasn’t going to be allowed to perform a mock lynching of rival Jay-Z. “We told Nas months ago he could say anything on mic, but no videos or props,” said Cloherty. “His people agreed. Then, two hours before the show, they brought a 12-foot gallows on the stage. We have a lot of love for Nas, but we had 16,000 people out there and a lot of kids. There wasn’t going to be a lynching on our stage.”
