Harlem ramblings: Did AZ Ho Happy Jackie inspire Nas: Black Girl Lost?

Ho Happy Jackie (1995) is one of my favorite AZ tracks. The song is about a promiscuous woman who will do whatever she can to get money and attention from men.

I always thought this inspired Nas’ Black Girl Lost(1996) because aside from the narrative of the song,  the girls in the skit sound identical to the girls in Ho Happy Jackie.
