Nas Talks Kelis, Drake, and Working With Kanye

I’m in love.  I’ve been in love with this man since 1999.  I was 9 years old.  Mind you, I speak of this love in the same way Common speaks of H.E.R.  The feeling is mutual.  Nas has been the epitome of hip hop to me for years now… but that’s a personal opinion that … Continue reading
