Nas is currently on tour and doing press to promote his shows. During a recent interview with the Omaha World-Herald, Nas talked about what who he is currently listening to and what he thinks of up-and-coming rapper Drake. "[I'm listening to] Drake and always Scarface," Nas revealed in an interview. "Drake is new. He's here to show anybody who questions him that he'll get at you. He's like fresh water right now on dry land."
Nas went on to talk about the respect he has for rap legend Scarface. "Scarface is the realist rapper. He's the most musically serious, besides Kanye [West], right now. What Scarface says in his rhymes is real. You can't get away from [Lil] Wayne right now. So that's what I'm listening to. I'm waiting on Dr. Dre's album."
