Nas Dishes On Child Support, Kelis, State Of Hip Hop And Trayvon Martin

Nas was chopping it up with Angie Martinez on Hot 97 on yesterday, promoting his latest single “The Don.” Rapper talked about his son, child support, his relationship with his ex-wife and on a recent state of hip hop. He also spoke about Trayvon Martin. Read the highlights of the interview below.

On his son Knight
“He looks like both of us. He looks a lot like [Kelis] in the eyes. He looks a lot like my first album cover [Illmatic] ’cause he got a little Afro.”

On his relationship with Kelis:
“I’m still working toward that and that part is fun. Everything is about work, nothing’s easy. And I feel like if I didn’t have work, I’d just be dead.”

On the current state of hip-hop:
“I love it. I like to see artists flossing. I like to see them make big records, go throw money in the clubs, and buy new chains. I just like people living their life and being happy.”

On his collaboration with Tyga:
“My daughter was like, ‘Yo, Tyga’s that dude,’ and I know ‘Rack City’ is my joint. So I know when Tyga call, I’m on that album. That was her call.”

On Trayvon Martin:
“You never wanna hear that kind of news. When it happens, you remember how many Trayvon incidents happen every day all over the world and have been happening. It doesn’t seem like the race problem will ever get solved. There’s a sickness that needs healing that this guy [George] Zimmerman is dealing with. And all the Zimmermans around the world, they’re dealing with hatred, ignorance, sickness, and they’re living in fear so I’m rocking my hoodie for my man.”
