Nas ft. Puff Daddy "Hate Me Now" cut content (lost uncut music video; 1999)

"Hate Me Now" music video (cut version).

In early 1999, a music video was produced for Nas' single "Hate Me Now", featuring Puff Daddy. The video, directed by Hype Williams controversially depicted the two rappers being crucified (amongst other things).

Before the video was to air, Puff Daddy (being a devout Catholic) spoke to his priest and decided that he wanted his crucifixion scene cut from the video, however, when it aired on April 15, 1999, the original cut was accidentally shown, and within minutes, Puff Daddy had burst into the office of Steve Stoute (Nas' manager), with several bodyguards, and struck Stoute over the head with a champagne bottle (allegedly taking -and, presumably destroying- the master tape afterwards). This led to a lawsuit being filed against Puff Daddy by Stoute, but it was later settled out of court. The original cut of the video hasn't been seen since, and the only likely chance of it surfacing would rely on someone having taped the original broadcast.
