Nas Talks Kelis, Love & The Most Important Album Of His Life
Nas has been going through a lot of changes lately. His bitter divorce from Kelis has been all over the internet, he recently released his first collaboration album with Damien Marley and he’s preparing what he calls “the most important record” of his life. His life is at an interesting crossroads. Known as one of the most prolific lyricists of our time, Nas has yet to create an album with the staying power and the relevancy as the seminal classic Illmatic. At the age of 36, he’s beginning to reach an age where he is no longer relevant to the teeny bopper crowd and is losing steam with the 20-somethings who weren’t truly in the moment when Illmatic dropped.
His divorce from Kelis has been messy and garnered more attention than his collaborative effort with Damien Marley. Ultimately, it’s not just about being a great MC anymore. For Nas, this is his life. The Queensbridge rapper appeared on the Tim Westwood radio show recently to discuss everything from his divorce to his upcoming project, which Kanye West has mentioned he wants to produce.
