Just sensationalism BS..! Sshmm... So counterproductive.
Seemingly while our POW are locked up & forgotten, while young generations are poisoned, while our people are dying by millions, some still got time & 'interest' to waste in this foul topic, just because some empty modern day icon has spit it
And no matter what game they play
We got something they could never take away
And it's the fire (fire), it's the fire (fire)
That's burning down everything
Feel that fire (fire), the fire (fire)
No water could put out this fire (fire)
Nas always been on that style. he just more clear about it now. he is not on the street nomore so I guess there's nothin to lose.
Nas - If I Ruled The World
Sourakhata, are you familiar with Dr. Frances Cress- Welsing's work? In my opinion, the title of this topic is not at all foul. He just puttin knowledge and awareness on wax. It's a fact that many of us will not read about the anatomy of racism, so I can appreciate Nas putting it out there. Did you listen to the lyrics? Perhaps we should look deeper.
As for Nas, I admit... There have been times when I've said things similar to myself in reference to what I considered flip flop lyrics. Perhaps it's because I loved Illmatic so much and got my feelings crushed when Nas became Italiano. lol Okay. Forreal though. Anyone can say anything they want about Nasir Jones, but can you really listen to him and not know that he is a genuis? How many of our genuises are misguided? The beef that I at one point had with what Nas was putting out was that an artist who knows better should do better. However, when artists generally do better (as far as their content being line with the knowledge they posess), they often end up broke. BUT that's another subject. MY POINT IS some are just plain monkey-artists. Nas is not that. Some are just plain hypocritical. I would not rush to say this about Nas. As I said previously, I know that there have been various twists and turns in his content, but for anyone who heard Nas since the first joint he dropped should know that dropping jew-elz (and schoolin' foo-lz) is not at all new territory to Nasir Jones. Not every artist is going to be what everything you or I might want him or her to be, but when we see valuable contributions, should we turn a blind eye simply because an artist is not everything (or even most of) what you or I think that he/she should be?
Nas is still half man half amazin. I had a lil' beef with what a lot of stuff he was droppin for a minute, but ESPECIALLY when I heard his CD with "Just Breathe", I felt that he had redeemed himself. Not that he personally owed me anything, but I'm sayin I been wantin him to do better for a minute cuz I been knowin he knew better for a minute. :-)
I'm loving the way he's using hiphop the way a lot of us here feel it should be used way more these days than not. Props to Nas!
