MTV News Exclusive: Nas Previews Hip-Hop Is Dead … The N

I was wondering when this guy was going to fill his ticket quota for the Fall.

Breaking News: Diddy didn’t write his previous albums. I for one, am shocked and confused. More as this bombshell story develops…

Update on Cassidy 

Has OutKast outclassed its audience?

Andre 3000: ‘Prince Charles is my style icon’

Toronto’s k-os alleges racism over album review

HBO documentaries find the music within urban kids 

Gospel music fans conflicted over downloading their favorite music. That sucks…for them. On the other hand these kids have no such reservations.

    I like the sound of Nas’ album. Still very street with very little commercial tracks. That’s the shit I’m talking about. Can’t wait!!!

    Is Premo going to be on Nas Album?…Anybody know?

    ^ I highly doubt that. Nas would have mentioned him in the article I think.If Premo is, it would be a surprise. It would be nice to have at least one Premo banger on there.

  15. G7 Says:

    “Every n—a under the age of 28 that raps — except for maybe five of you — needs to shut the f— up for eight months,”

    I wonder what 5 artists under 28 Nas is diggin’. Game is one obviously. He should shut the fcuk up imo though. I wonder who the other 4 are? That leaves a ton young rappers out there that need to keep hushed. He might be right though.

    Lupe is definitely one of them. But fuck Nas, I’d rather hear rappers from my generation instead of the cast of 30-something telling me how it is, how it was, and how it should be.

    ^ most of the young cats today aren’t saying much though. There really is only a handful that got shit to say.

    ^^Thats so true. Its seems that they aren’t willing to be creative or are just rapping for money only. No artistic integrity. Not that every song has to have some sort of message or anything, but damn be more creative sometimes.

    But I don’t wanna be to harsh on the under 28, cuz the execs are only looking for gimmicks anyway.

  24. hip hop cops - mr manners Says:

    @ G7

    Yeah I got into an argument with my friend this weekend about this… I said Young Dro was coonery and he was like ‘nah, it’s just a southern guy rapping about what his environment is like’. I still think it’s kind of shucking and jiving for 2006 but I can appreciate that its a window for people who aren’t from that part of the country or that background to see what the “culture” is like. But I think most of the older cats aren’t really saying too much either. Don’t get me wrong, Nas is my #2 all-time mc, but really he’s the only one who I consistently get something out of his lyrics. Jay maybe 80% of the time. But other older dudes? Not hearin them say much of anything.

    Say word. What’s weird about Outkast is that even though the majority of their ish is wackalicious, every now and then they come with something tight like Hollywood divorce or “I be on that crytonite”.

  29. landLORD Says:

    … i predict that Kanye and Nas will have better musical chemistry on their tracks than Camel and Kanye… Kanye’s uncanny ear for vintage soul soundscapes and Nas’ soulful and introspective lyricism should be a perfect match …

  37. G7 Says:

    @ hip hop cop

    Hiphop is in a messed up state right now. I still think most of the older mc’s are better than the ones coming up, but the older mc’s don’t get any shine anymore really unless you’re a big name. And the young rappers coming up are so gimmicky and lack versatility. And hiphop seems to be the only music that has an expiration date on age. Like once you hit 30-something you’re irrelevant(in most cases). It’s not like that in other genres of music. Some rappers need to know when to fall back though. It’s almost like boxers not knowing when to quit…ie Holyfield

  38. skeeematics Says:

    Great Nas Interview.. there are alot of shit he said that needs to be qouted in every Hip Hop Magazine and website till his shit drops.

    We depending on True MCs like nas (that crossed over to the masses) to bring the light back to real Hip Hop.

    Alot of new rappers really need to shut the fuck up and listen.

    I liked Kayne and Twista musical chemistry… It helped comeback Twista’s career. I wonder why he did use him for his recent album (maybe he got cheap with the money or something)… But the end result his album flopped.

    My thing is that Nas’s album will be real good, but the times changed… The people who buy, are buying Santana, Game, Dem Franchise Boyz, Lil Wayne, etc… It’s not that I don’t like him, it’s I think he lost his selling appeal with the new cats, thesedays.

    ^^ Yep I agree with you on that. And I say that to people all day. Then they come back with, “Well then how do you measure success” ..

    The other day somebody told be rappers are in the business of selling records & that’s it, bottom line. I told what him Vanilla Ice went plat and he said,” It’s a rappers job to sell records, because they are in the business of selling records, just like it’s a fisherman business to catch fish”… I told him he’s crazy and I’m confused.

    The reason Nas’s album got pushed back is because there building the Hype, once the hype is built, then the sales go through the roof, if they just don’t leak it, Def jam is gonna have there new golden boy, trust me, they have been building the hype since the the day he hooked up with Jay, i’ve never seen Nas have so much hype ever, The marketing team knows what there doin on this one”$$$$$$$$$$$$”

    ^^ Not at all — but if he’s calling out cats who aren’t saying anything- than he needs to realize that some of those rappers fall in his age bracket.
    If he’s talking about responsibility and Hip Hop ownership, he needs to take a look at his generation of rappers anmd what they did or more to the point didn’t do to ensure that the torch and knowledge was passed down correctly. Its easy to call out someone because they’re young, but come on there is more to it than that.

    Anyway, I don’t care how much they’re fronting, I’m sure at the end of the day them niggas earned more money than I did last year, so fuck ‘em. Maybe I’m different cuz I used to steal everything I got my hands on, but I could give a fuck about supporting most of these niggas man.

    they get on records and threaten to shoot me and fuck my girl and rob me and then I’m supposed to put more dough in their pocket, so they can flash mroe ice in my face? man listen, ya’ll niggas better start dressing like bums if you want me to feel any sympathy for you. fuck that, I need to live and I got kids that enjoy eating every day. these rap niggas can kiss my ass.

    nobody told them niggas to put that shit out. them niggas did not come out as commercial artists so what would ever make them think that commercial was the way to go? all that does is alienate your real fanbase and cause you to flop even harder. like niggas said above, you don’t need a budget to make a good album, especially in the days of Myspace and the internet.

    yes and I actually said it in the same post where I aired Atlantic out. what I said was I wanted him to win to send a message to the industry. I think in certain circumstances it’s alright to make an exception, but for the most part, fuck the majors. Lupe is the exception…most records like his are dropping on independent labels. the only reason Atlantic fucked with him is cuz of the Kanye/Jay co-sign, plus Chi-town is considered ‘next up’ or whatever, so they’re riding the wave. 97% of the shit Atlantic puts out is trash.

    As far producers and budgets; it goes both ways

    Somebody could use their budget for big-name people and still get nothing in sales… But sometimes it does help to get quality production.

    Like Camron, used to get Heatmakerz and Just Blaze and make good tracks (Come Home with me) and now he’s getting cheap and ‘”finish up my album for $15,000″ and the production/songs suck.

    i’m not even about to get into this convo again. except to say this. i honestly like the strip club atmosphere moreso than a regular bar and sometimes more than a regular club. stayin at home is cool but sometimes i want to get out of the house. plus when guys buy you drinks at the strip club they don’t wanna dance, follow you around or any of that ish. they just buy you a drink and before you know it some naked girl has caught their attention and there’s no problem or bad feelings for ignoring him for the rest of the night.

He has to remember that he’s being compared to “best in class”. It’s unfair, but that’s just a fact of the world we’re in, where technology makes it incredibly easy to sample a wider variety of work
