Nas Speaks On Non-Lyrical Rap, Stresses His Support For President Barack Obama

Nas says the game lacks style these days, speaks on fully supporting President Barack Obama.

During an interview with The Life Files, Queensbridge rapper Nas had quite a lot to say when it came to a number of topics including the absence of lyricism in music, President Barack Obama, and more.

Nas seemed to defend the newer Hip Hop artists when asked what he thinks about music gradually becoming less lyrical, explaining that there’s music he’s feeling that sounds nothing like the type of music he creates. The rapper did add that there seems to be a lack of style in Hip Hop.

“I mean it’s so much Hip Hop music out there,” Nas explained. “It’s so much that it’s too much coming nonstop… I didn’t have the time to really pay attention as much as I used to, but it’s just people expressing themselves. People expressing themselves and just finding their way. And however you feel like doing that, do it…Some shit sounds amazing to me and it’s not nothing like what I do, but it’s amazing to me. There’s some stuff you’re gonna hate, some stuff you’re gonna like. I think there’s a lot of lacking of style in the game nowadays.”

The interview turned a bit more political as Nas spoke on President Obama who he says he fully supports.   

“I support Barack Obama and everything he does,” said Nas. “It’s just a hell of a game and I never paid too much attention or cared about a president’s life until he got into office. I didn’t feel they cared about my life. I just feel like it’s a hell of a job. I think he cares about all Americans. And we can say, me being a black man, I’m proud to have that kind of black man in office because it takes that kind of black man…A lot of people want him to cater only to African Americans on their time, when they’re ready for him to do so. That’s ridiculous.”

Nas’ tenth studio album Life Is Good is expected to be released on July 17th.

  • OBAMA

    Obama is a puppet, his masters are Zionists, he couldn't give a shit about Americans, so what if hes black, his administration introduced the NDAA (You can be arrested and jailed for infinite time without legal represenatation) also they wanted to introduce SOPA (spy on your internet and monitor you)these are only a few acts, search obama illumanti.

    I've met so many whites with an aversion to street art/culture but love Eminem, Banksy, Ali G and any wack street-dancing flick like those bullshit Step Up movies. The reason these whites detest and loath the authentic Black originals in favour of an attenuated ersatz white copy? Racial solidarity. This affirmative action has gentrified and ruined hip-hop. Whites like Mac, Yela getting a shot over more talented, deserving Black rappers because their ethnicity is less intimidating and more appealing to the bigoted mainstream. I'm no gonna lie and say a lot of Brother's affinity with Obama stems from Nubian solidarity, but we're not hypocrites about it. I fuck with death metal music, but I would never let the fact that Suffocation have Black members sway my allegiance to them over white bands like Mobid Angel or Cannibal Corpse.

    JFK was the first and only black president this country ever had. We might have another one, but it won't be in this same country we living at right now.

  • HeavenIsForRealGees

    NOne lyrical rappers have always had their place in hip hop. The difference between now and back then is there was a balance back then. Everyone made their money, stayed in their own lanes and kept it moving. With the internet now rappers who are only supposed to have 15 minutes of fame are fighting for 30. Its good for the artist but it destroys the balance. Therefore everyone copies each other to get some shine, quality of music goes down and here we are today. Dont get me wrong i love the internet. We can also blame this young generation, they're the ones buying the shit, riding the trends and going to shows.

      I agree with you completely. Nas shouldnt co-sign the new kids so much because he's a lyrical rapper and has a greater rapping talent than today's non-lyrical rappers making money in rap. I rap and am very lyrical, and I have a problem giving so much credit to rappers that are not as developed. Nas should have definately checked the situation.

  • Anonymous

    This motherfucker is so fucking ignorant. I support Obama too, but not because he's fucking black. Nas knows NOTHING about politics and his mindset is stuck in 1969.

    • 614grind

      He's a U.S. citizen with a vote that has every right to speak on politics. Who are you to judge his political acumen anyway? What are your credentials? Besides, all Nas' music is socially and politically charged. You have no idea what your talking about.

    Nas is actually being polite with his statements. The rap game is now boring as hell and is at an all time low in terms of creativity and lyrics. However, revenue is up so rappers are focused on creating music that will bring in the cash. Rap music is so bad now that I'm down to maybe 5 artist that I still kind of sort of check for.

    Grover Cleveland BEEN warned us about big corporations meddling in political affairs. "The prosperity of the 1920s was unevenly distributed among the various parts of the American economyfarmers and unskilled workers were notably excludedwith the result that the nation's productive capacity was greater than its capacity to consume. In addition, the tariff and war-debt policies of the Republican administrations of the 1920s had cut down the foreign market for American goods. Finally, easy-money policies led to an inordinate expansion of credit and installment buying and fantastic speculation in the stock market. The American depression produced severe effects abroad, especially in Europe, where many countries had not fully recovered from the aftermath of World War I; in Germany, the economic disaster and resulting social dislocation contributed to the rise of Adolf Hitler. In the United States, at the depth (193233) of the depression, there were 16 million unemployedabout one third of the available labor force." ^ does all of this sound familiar? A lot of you proclaiming "puppet" are actual THE puppet, parakeet what you heard instead of understanding what you know.

And to be honest I wasn't aware back in 2008 about the electoral college and what it truly signifies. But I do now and I'm just commenting, relax my man. Just live and let live. Nas one of the greatest in hiphop, but after looking at the continual wave of decisions the Obama has made it is clear that any president now or future will be a puppet. We were fed a lie disguised in a character that brought hope and catered to the countries desperate need for something different. Don't lash out for some simple comments. Read learn and listen for its a priceless gift.

    • Anonymous

      I am far from lashing out. I left some info to study above and will state this before I depart: Healthcare=corporate business interest vs care for the population Businesses like Blue Cross or Kaiser Permenante don't want that, their insurance business and their pharmaceutical & hospital business (conflict of interest???) would crumble. I know a guy with a flesh bacteria problem that was being charged $1,100 a month for pills and when he went to Canada, it cost $78. The motive behind "we don't want government in our business". And as for "We were fed a lie disguised in a character that brought hope and catered to the countries desperate need for something different", Mrs. Palin was created out of this same sentiment.

    I guess what someone typed yesterday is 100% correct. A Nas article shows up with Obama's name and poof! Instead of the nonsense comments we have a forum full of political pundits.

If you're not you're the puppet on this thread, you voted and didn't even know it doesn't count in the final tally.

But I hope just because he wants everyone to have the same rights as thier fellow americans that he's all of a sudden a villain. That bible has gotten you christian roaches in a chokehold. Every argument about that topic always points to what the bible says. I never heard a secular argument yet. You vermin would rather have Romney in office? He'll be worse and he'll make an even bigger gap for the rich, middle, and poor classes. I was pulling for Ron Paul but I know for certain that I'm not going to vote for someone like Mitt.

      Please tell me what I said that was foolish. I said the bible excuse was fool of shit and I said people have turned their backs on obama because of his support for same sex marriage.

      From wikipedia, for sad little sheeple ETK: An ad hominem, short for argumentum ad hominem, is an attempt to negate the truth of a claim by pointing out a negative characteristic or belief of the person supporting it.

      Same song n dance.."it's not Obamas fault it's the Republicans! Obama was going to save us all but those bastards wont let him, I promise!" I guess it's a lot easier to spew that nonsense than to justify the bullshit that puppet Obama has done. Show me ONE Obama supporter who can justify all the shit he's done while in office (much of which has been listed already in other comments)..Brainwashed idiots playing the red team vs blue team game, not knowing they're both on the same side behind the scenes. And no, dumbass, nobody wants Romney either..the point is to make real change and stop picking the 'lesser of two evils.' Fuck Obama, Fuck Romney, Fuck Democrats, Fuck Republicans, Fuck all the politicians and snakes..and Fuck all you willfully ignorant sheeple who want to keep playing this game and supporting rich, greedy warmongers while they rape you and your neighbors

  • @J_Frigger

    damn it's a shame my peoples just love Obama because he's got the same color as us like that clown doesn't even give a shit about us SMH

  • The F**k?

    Just lost mad respect for this brotha foe real. I can't support these comments. I used to think nas was like the rappin Huey Freeman, but since he shook hands wit JayZ I seen it coming. Buck ofama.

  • Nas has turn into a puppet

    If Nas don't co sign the puppet obama, he won't be getting no more checks.....just saying!

  • The F**k?

    I been wit Nas music for the longest. But this talk about Obama? I just lost mad res

    • Anonymous

      Yup, media propaganda had a lot of people fooled into thinking Obama was actually a man and not just another puppet. We thought we actually had a choice between a peaceful, honest man trying to help the country or 4 more years of lies, war, and shredding of constitutional rights..too bad both candidates were ONCE AGAIN representing the same damn thing.. this year is the same shit, good ol' American Imperialism with a White face, or good ol' American Imperialism with a Black face..it's really time for a change cuz we're fucked if we keep going down this path

    • The MG

      How are you just NOW losing respect for Nas for supporting Obama? I guess you were okay with the song "Black President" and his collaboration with Jeezy in 2008.

  • Ha

    Man I just listen to Nas music. i don't respect what comes out this man's mouth. This is the same dude who couldn't remember his twitter on 106 & park, AND IT'S @NAS smh. How can you forget that? And then you have that N.I.G.G.E.R embarrassment where his explanation for using that name changed in every interview. Dude has clearly gotten way too high too many times in his life. Yall can have the Nas interviews. I'll stick to the music!

    i like nas but you fully support obama WTF ? , you support the NDAA act , you support the arresting of americans with no proof and evidence and no fair trial , you support war , fuck obama

    • RellyRell

      Also supports the war in Libya, falsification of Osama death, gay marriage, Israel, Guatanamo Bay and the imprisonment of the military whistle blower kid who gave the videos and documents of killing of civilians to wikileaks. Life is good? Maybe if you're a multimillion dollar sell out with security guards and a maybach. Obama and Nas is some bitch ass niggas.

    • Hip Hop 4 Life

      Co sign...Excuse my french,but FUCK OBAMA AND ANYBODY WHO SUPPORT THAT SELLOUT. HE DOESN'T CARE ABOUT NOBODY, BUT HIS HOLDERS....POINT BLANK!!!!

  • ETL

    Say what you want about Obama, but you can't possibly fix you mouth to say Romney would make it better. Obama was not really able to do what he wanted to do for the country this term because he needs co signs to make it happen. But what did get signed off on was bad decisions. November either way we're fucked.

  • Jason

    i love Nas as an artist but that doesnt mean artists know shit about whats really goin on in politics for the little guys!!! everybody hurts like the REM song and in Cali whites are the new minorities. lol when your wealthy its hard to follow others pain lol nuff said

    • Is It Really True That Niggas Grew Up On Manhattan?

      co-sign Obama is just like everybody else he doesn't care about black people I never saw him giving me any money

  • PHx

    "fully support him and everything he does"? WTF? It really disappoints me when great musicians, such as Nas, do things like this. You support the hiring of monsanto insiders ect. at that level? You support the persecution of marijauna clubs? You support the bailout? You support the vacations and lies? BP? Drones? Libya? And dont tell me you dont know whats going on! Whats a Sellout mean to you? Hows Nas' and Jayz's profile looking recently? This is a shady game man, cant trust nobody.

  • Anonymous

    Mother fucking idiots be going hard on Obama like he's god. Like he really has that proverbial magic wand. Run yawls ass over to Romney then. Bye. Maybe Ron Paul will get congress to remove all the US military bases from across the globe too right? But hey Obama's the insane, evil one trying to bring pain to you all. I mean he must be illuminati right? Him and Jay-Z can't wait to take over the world!

    • Buck Ofama, Ruck Fomney

      If you can explain how Obama was justified in signing NDAA, extending the Patriot Act, authorizing military action in Libya (without the approval of congress), drastically increasing drone strikes (killing countless civilians), etc etc..then your opinion on the matter can be taken seriously..Until then, you're another ignorant sheep voting 'red team or blue team, black face or white face' with no grasp of what's actually going on.

    Nas WAS a rebel to America

    • Anonymous

      How can any real man with principles support this corporate/military industrial complex puppet? You're either a sellout, incredibly ignorant/misinformed, or part of the elite and happy with the way things are going. It's really that simple.

    • SMH

      Why WAS? Because he supports Obama? OH NO he supports Obama he must be a sellout.

  • Anonymous

    As usual the white media is SO slow to catch what's going on in hip-hop / black culture. If you think there is no lyrical rappers out and known anymore you are OUT OF IT. It has gotten beyond you and it really can't be pointed out to you. This happens with every older generation, they just don't get it.

  • Nas is a joke

    Nas is the worst sellout in the game.. he trying to jump on the incredibly ignorant 'vote for Obama cuz hes black' bandwagon to make up for defending a white girl saying 'nigga' I support Barack Obama and everything he does, Oh, u support NDAA? you support the drone strikes and illegal war? What about extending the Patriot Act? You support America's imperialism and slaughter of Africans and Arabs? Fuck it..as long as my president got swag and listens to Young Jeezy, he can shit on the constitution and human lives, who cares. Let's tell the truth Nas, there's no way in hell you support this puppet and his furthering of the elites' agenda..what you really support is ignorance and selling out for a dollar I was still a fan even after all his bullshit over the years but this ends it..Fuck the music, I have lost all respect for Nas as a man..Fuck that clown

  • Anonymous

    "Sold dope now a nigga cant go vote." But I guess Nas supports the White House now, and the War on Drugs that goes with it. SMH.

  • Anonymous

    He cosigns Tyga and Nicki Minaj, and said Carter 4 is a classic. Nas doesn't know shit.

    • ^^^^

      Carter 4 a good album? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!!! That's funny. Carter 4 was garbage. Why do you think the critics shitted on this album when it came out and called it one of the most disappointing albums of 2011? Besides, people who liked Watch the Throne thought that Carter 4 sucked.

    • Zzzzz

      Carter IV is a great album if you take your head out your ass for i minute and actually sit down and listen to it. You probably hate WTT too. "Oh it Jay and Ye talking about money" Like none of the classic 90's albums ever did that. (rolls eyes)

      Never gonna happen, people are stupid and can not think logically. Every four years its "You have to vote for (enter name of douchebag) or we are going to end up with (enter name of turd sandwich). Hip hop used to take a stand, but now because so much hate on Obama it's all you gotta defend him "cause he black." Bush got just as much hate, except people were talking about the crooked shit he did. Now people hate Obama for dumb ass reasons but completely ignore the fact he doing the same crooked ass shit. Dont hate the player, hate the game. And the game of American politics and politics in general is a fuckin disgrace.

    Nas classic albums : 1/ILLMATIC 2/IT WAS WRITTEN 3/ THE LOST TAPES

  • Anonymous

    as far as the lyrics Nas is that dude as far as the sound, he aint shit as far as a legend in the hip-hop game, he definitely is and I'm glad he picks salaam remi and no id as the main producers for his new album cause they're dope while usually has picks some shitty beats made by some shitty producers. so maybe we can expect a third classic album right after illmatic and it was written

  • DJAzmatic

    Man I totally agree with son! The ironic thing is, there was more Hip Hop out when he put out "Hip Hop Is Dead" then there is now lol. Now (in the mainstream) we got all these BMF clone beats and rappers talking on the track. Half the time they aren't even rhyming (if someone can break down Nicki Minaj's bridge on "Beez In the Trap" I'll pay you! lol
