Nas Covers XXL’s November Issue

XXL has revealed the cover for their latest issue which features Nas celebrating 20 years in Hip Hop.

When asked if he was happy with how everything turned out, Nas had this to say:

“Dawg, I was naming my album Life Is Good because of how happy I am about how happy things have turned out,” Nas answered. “Sometimes I may wake up and wish my kids were living with me. That’s the only thing, you know what I mean? Our loved ones that are not around no more, like my mom. That’s the only thing. But other than that, everything is great, even when I’m alone. Even when there’s no one around.”

Check out more excerpts over at XXL.

    Never was a fan of jim jones but I must admit I admire the fact he tries to be somewhat a hip hop historian.Those throwback freestyles are evidence.

    ^ he just jumped on a wave… French Montanas to be specific.

  4. Cypher Says:

    Mixtapes, constantly in the public eye etc. If he were to retire his career overall is alot more complete than other rappers

    ^
    maybe… But if he did retire would anyone notice?

    they will prehaps throw a retirment party to which you will attend balding, energy depleted on some jay cole shit. People that dont give a fuck about you will write nice things in a card that will end up on your dresser. And thats all you have to remember the last 40 years. Lmao.

    ^what are you doing differently?

    every time you try to leave … you keep getting pulled back in

  23. cOLD Says:

    with just enough savings to scrooge your way to your coffin.

  24. Beezy Says:

    I might have some super ill shit lined up that involves me leaving to join a start-up company where I’d be a partner … but I can’t really call it.

    Too much up in the air.

    Might happen really soon though …

    *fingers crossed*

    *prays*

  25. D_Block_4_life Says:

    CC is opting out as a business move. why not get 45 mill more from the Yankees? His agent would be an idiot if CC didn’t opt out.

  26. cOLD Says:

    ^what are you doing differently?

    ^ I said you all figuratively speaking. I am of that same majorty.

    Im a big dreamer tho, so watch me come up with something.

    Yo cold,

    who you think should be the AL MVP? Also, how do you feel about pitchers winning league MVP awards? One more thing, do you think the NBA players are greedy for wanting 53/47 revenue share as opposed to 50/50? Please respond.

  34. cOLD Says:

    “All things appear and disappear because of the concurrence of causes and conditions. Nothing ever exists entirely alone; everything is in relation to everything else.”

    ^absolutely not.

    My goal is to make sr mgnt n stack chips write a book, make a program and then just consult get paid to speak. Like around 55
    I have 2 mentors who do this plus teach

    But that’s along time from now
    You gotta at sometime work for yourself

  37. cOLD Says:

    d- bleezy I think Dustin Pedroia first, and maybe Kevin Youkilis second…. and as far as pitchers winning the MVP, stats are stats…. The Pro ballers of the nba have a right in demanding more cake. These owners are caking something fierce.

  38. cOLD Says:

    I think writing a book is a long term goal of mine, Ill movie too… I aint built for this 9-5, its like caging a tiger of thought.
