Life is good! We haven’t had a chance to sit down with one of top rappers in almost every hip hop fan’s book, Nas, in a couple years so we had a lot to cover. In part one of our interview Nas reveals the inspiration behind his new album title Life Is Good, tells us how his former manager Steve Stoute ended up in his recent music video for “The Don” and gives us some advice on fine wines. JD also gets Nas’ feelings on Nicki Minaj and all the flack she has been getting lately and explains the message he hoped to get across with his “Daughters” video which featured his own daughter Destiny.
Stay tuned for part two where Nas names his favorite rappers of the moment, rates the performance of President Barack Obama’s first term and talks about making the first rapper mixtapes with DJ Clue.
