Nas Says, “The Good Die Young…”
Last night, native Queens rapper Nas had an one-on-on interview with CNN’s Don Lemon about his “Open Letter to Young Warriors.”
The interview started with Nas’ lyrics to “Shoot Em Up” and followed with critical questions about rap’s influence on young minds, the tragic case of Derrion Albert and how Nas’ fellow hip-hop peers play a role in the lives of everyday people.
In cased you missed the interview, catch it here:
Nas says, “I’m not going to change my music to make it more positive, because that’s not real. I have to make what’s real.”
The hip-hop legend then followed up by saying, “We love them…” referring to “them” as the people and the rap musicians being the “we”.
Let us know how you feel about Nas’ thoughts. Do you agree with his ideology and perspective?
