With so many new voices and faces in the game, it is easy to forget about Nas. The last time he released a new album was three years ago. Despite achieving critical acclaim on his project with Damian Marley, the album did not receive much play.
While Nas may have been overlooked by some, he is well aware of what has gone on. Recently, Nasty Nas was very interactive on his Twitter account. Taking questions from his fans, Nas spoke on everything going on in his life. Ranging from serious topics, to off the wall, Nas talked.
Early in her career, Foxy Brown worked closely with Nas, but over the years, they have separated. During the height of his feud with Jay-Z, Nas called Jay out over his relationship with Foxy Brown. Despite all of this, Nas and Foxy Brown have maintained a strong relationship and Nas said she is his little sister.
On the topic of female rappers, Nas was asked to deliver his opinion about Lil’ Kim and Nicki Minaj. For nearly a year, the two femcees went head-to-head. Nas said comparing the two rappers makes little to no sense. When speaking of Lil’ Kim, Nas said she has some “legendary shit.” Nicki Minaj, on the other hand, is the new queen of the world, in Nas’ book. Trying his best to stay out of their situation, Nas was able to praise both of them, without taking away from the other.
Before her death, Amy Winehouse said she admired Nas. When asked of the people she would have loved to perform with, Nas was at the top of her list. At the time, Nas said he liked her brand of music and would love to record with her. Sadly, this did not happen, as Winehouse passed away last month. Remembering her, Nas was asked about Amy Winehouse. The Queens rapper said he was saddened by her death and also referred to her as his little sister.
Following the project with The Firm, Nas talked about his past feud with Cormega. Despite things getting bad between the two, Nas said their issues are in the past. Moving forward, Nas said he no longer has issues with Cormega. Nas also discussed the music he listens to, admitting he is a big Waka Flocka Flame fan and briefly speaking on his failed marriage with Kelis.
