What Else Can Nas Be Hiding From Us?

Submitted by on September 28, 2009 – 7:31 pm7 Comments


Nas is finally coming clean.

No, he’s not going to finally admit that he lost to Jay-Z (…which he did…), the Queensbridge lyricist is going personal about the skeletons in his closet for a song off his upcoming disc.

Find out what he has to say after the jump.

This is a record that, right now, I’m scared of making,” Nas said of the album. “I don’t know what’s gonna happen, as far as I don’t know what I’m gonna say. I feel like I’ve put so much of my personal life out there, and I feel like I’m one of the sort of guys you don’t really hear about [though] paparazzi or fan magazines all the time. But I just feel like my life is so much out there [now] that it’s kind of like — man, I don’t even know how to put into words how I feel about putting this record together. I’m a little nervous, to tell you the truth. That’s all I can say.”

Twitter has made it so that you cannot HIDE ANYTHING from anyone at any given time. Besides the fact that most of us are nosy sumuvabatches, the rest are just really pure Nas fans who are interested in any and everything the Illmatic rapper says and does. His latest outcry on the death of Derrion Albert (also a trending topic on Twitter) proves that there are greater things going on in this world than his baby mama drama, but with the media hounds, gossip-mongers and stans alike all waiting on bended ear to see what Nasir Jones‘ latest offering produces… what else do you think he could be hiding from us?

…Fans, foes and freaks alike – share your thoughts/jokes/tales about what Nas’s verse could be about in our comments section below!

  • I KNOW that all of my friends at DrJays knew that I would comment about this one. You all were right. Clark Kent, you’re the truth – but I have to respectfully disagree with you on this one.
    When did Nas lose to Jay-Z? I understand that you may be a Hova fan and all, but let’s give credit where credit is due. Nas won. Everyone knows that, it’s barely disputed. Hova didn’t lose his fans, his career, or his prominence in the game. However, Nas, whose drive, skill, talent, and credibility had been tested – rose from the ashes like a phoenix and sent a message to every doubter and naysayer that he hadn’t lost his touch. If I’m not mistaken, the Hot 97 poll results crowned Nas the King of New York as well. I would even venture as far as to say that if Nas had truly lost, you wouldn’t feel the need to qualify your take on his and Jay-Z’s epic and legendary hip hop battle with a parenthetical phrase (…which YOU did…). Nasir Jones is the Greatest of All Time. Hands down.
    Had to get that out of the way, I’m a die-hard Nas fan, as everyone who frequents this site knows.
    Now to the matter at hand. His verse will likely have to do with who or what he thinks destroyed his marriage (although rumors have it that they are reconciling?). Kelis has been referenced so much in Mr. Jones’s music, I know he might want to recant some of the flattering things he has said about her. Hopefully, he will say what he has to say in a classy way – after all, she is the mother of young Knight.
    By the way, does this post refer to the Distant Relatives record with Damian Marley or to an upcoming solo project?

    yeah jay lost that one hands down and i thought everybody knew that ether was the 2000 no Vaseline.

  • luxurylife says:

    JayZ did lose that battle but he he did land a sid vicious first blow it put nas on his ass but he got up and went to work. But JayZ did too and now argueably the most powerful man in hiphop.Im not a Nas fan but I respect him and hopefully he can rise from all this turmoil he is in and make a good album in the years to come.

  • Anna says:

    Looking forward to hearing his more deep and meaningful stuff…

  • Boss Lady says:

    I love Nas like the next hip-hop fan, but what concerns me is the TIMING of his charitable efforts.

    His M.O. appears to be release an album, pick up a cause.

    Most recently his last album revolved around the “N word” controversy, which lead to his movement against Fox News, etc. As soon as his album was off our “new release” radar so apparently was his public passion for the cause.

    Now he’s discussing his upcoming album and is almost conveniently behind a new (of course extremely worthy) social discussion.

    You hear nary a word from Nas at times other than an album release.

    Just an observation…


  • I can’t front on you, Boss Lady. You have quite a valid point. The only problem is that you almost never hear from Nas unless his album’s coming out. That was true of Stillmatic, God’s Son, Street’s Disciple, and Hip Hop Is Dead – neither of which really had a charitable cause. I heard him say on an old 106 & Park episode (back when AJ & Free were still there) that he fears the mainstream media, paparazzi, public eye, and the effects that they can have on one’s life. It seems that the time has arrived for him to overcome that fear and continuously speak on the charitable causes that rouse him – and to be the face and voice for the many people that his words and albums can impact.
