Nas is one of my favorite hip-hop artists. And the reason for that is Nas is the first hip-hop artist I hear talk about Africa. Great in light within himself within his music. If you want to listen to some culture in hip-hop, you can listen to Nas. And something is in him that is not unconscious. Even in the movie [Belly] they did, he says, ‘Let’s get out of here, let’s go to Africa.’ I like when a man have root inside of him. Nas have a root within him that will help sustain him to the next lifetime.
