Nas Says His Peers Are Dead, Fugitives Or In Prison

Posted By on February 5, 2010

     Nas recently sat down to talk about his role in hip-hop and how he says he continues to be a leading voice in the rap game. According to the grammy-nominated rapper, he represents the unheard voice and thoughts of the streets. "A lot of people are fronting, like, 'I'm from this. I'm from that,'" he says. "Even the so-called [socially] conscious rappers, they claim ghetto. I love jewelry. I love cars," he said. "And part of it is because cars fascinate me. Part of it is because of what social status it represents. … So I do talk about it [on recordings]. Every gangster I've ever known or every street dude I've ever known has a heart. They know about … more than girls and booty-shakin'. And that's who I'm here to represent. All my peers are dead, fugitives or locked up."

     Recently fellow rapper Bow Wow said he could not wait for the new album from Nas. "I'm ready for a new Nas Album," he wrote yesterday (February 4) on his twitter. "1st day starting on my new album. @RealDjKayslay @bowwow614 when u got tht banger.. ima blow it up in NY<== yessir big homie. thank you. anything you need from me let me kno."
