Both she and Nas eventually became unfaithful; Carmen explains: “He was cheating, I was cheating. The problem was who I was cheating with. Had I been cheating with some nobody…that may not have been a problem. But I was cheating with individuals that were in the same genre of music, the same circles, but I didn’t look at it as if I was doing anything wrong. This is my circle too; these are my peers too.”
