In nearly 20 years of rap stardom, Nas has never displayed anything much in the way of a sense of humor. But credit the man for being game enough to show up on The Colbert Report and squirm while Colbert said stuff like this: "Your ex-wife was Kelis. Was there any problem with the fact that her milkshake brought all the boys to the yard?" He's a good sport! And he also burned through his banger " The Don " on the Colbert Report stage. Watch the interview and the performance below. Read More...
Stereogum In nearly 20 years of rap stardom, Nas has never displayed anything much in the way of a sense of humor.

Yesterday we got to see Nas perform " Daughters " on the Late Show with David Letterman . Last night he kept the promotional ball rolling for his recently released studio album, Life is Good , with a visit to The Colbert Report . Stephen and Nas sit down for a chat before Nas performs a rip-roaring rendition of "The Don". Peep the interview at the top and the performance after the jump, both courtesy of The Audio Perv .
Last night, Nas continued his late night run with an appearance on The Colbert Report . Right off the bat, Colbert reminded the 38-year-old rapper of his original appearance on the show five years ago."The day you arrived on my show, your album went to number one," Colbert said. "This new album, Life is Good , I want this album to go to number zero." Outside of yucks, Nas digressed on the meaning behind the album's title ("It's just about life and to be happy to wake up every morning," he contended.), [...]
Nas recently sat down with Muze Music and Cricket Wireless to discuss some tracks from his new LP, Life Is Good. In the short clip below, Nas breaks down “No Introduction,” “Daughters,” “Loco-Motive,” “Accident Murderers” and “A Queens Story," from the LP. From what I've heard this is a must purchase and it is Nas for christ's sake. Do It .
Stereogum If you catch Nasir Jones on the right day, he's still pretty much the best-dressed man in rap. Last night on Letterman , the man looked particularly dapper in a Sinatra-on-vacation sort of way, as he led a full band and horn section through " Daughters ," the maudlin-but-nice confused-father lament from his new album Life Is Good . I like how Letterman called him a "rapping star." Watch it below. Read More... [...]
Nas says he was greatly inspired by Marvin Gaye's record 'Here, My Dear' , a double disc album recorded about Marvin's messy divorce from Anna Gordy , sister to Berry Gordy. He and Anna , who was 17 years older than him, were married for 13 years. "Marvin Gaye in particular was a big inspiration in particular behind me letting the public into my life on this album and one record he did in particular is called 'Here, My Dear'. That record [...]
MTV interviews Nas as he discusses his upcoming Life Is Good album, saying that the newest project is comparable to the Fugees' The Score . He also says that it is a complete album front to back. Any album that features Salaam Remi beats has to draw some concern these days, but let's hope this is dope. Hip hop needs a great album from one of the best rappers of all time right now.

And you thought this year's summer jam was a scorcher... Once upon a time, the Summer Jam stage played host to beefs that ran a little deeper than real Hip-Hop vs. pop rap, Peter Rosenberg vs. Nicki Minaj (which might be a Pay-Per-View worthy battle). Back in 2002, at the height of his war of words with Jay-Z, the irascible Nas skipped his slated Summer Jam performance and took to Hot 972s NY rival Power 105 with anger to spare: "I'm here to let my people know why I am not at [...]
