Hip Hop veteran Nas recently sat down to discuss what he thinks of the current state of Hip Hop and it's stars like Kanye West, Drake, Rick Ross and others. Saying these types of artists keep him on his toes, Nas also co-signed hip hop newcomers, Odd Future and their leader Tyler, The Creator.
"I'm happy about music, it's pushing me back into the studio. I just love what's happening [in music]: I love Odd Future, [Lil] Wayne, Drake, 'Ye [and] Rick Ross. It's something that threatens my position. Or it makes me question what I'm going to do next. What kind of impact do I want have now that I've been in the business this long. It's a challenge, it's scary even. But I'm very comfortable. I'm excited to see what comes out of me… I'm ready." (The Juice)
