With his tenth album, Life is Good, on the way, Nas is still one of the most-prominent rappers in the game. Twenty years ago, Nas first began seriously rapping. Recently, Nas discussed all of this with XXL magazine, interviewed by Tyler, the Creator.
Tyler, the Creator is one of the brightest new stars in the rap game. His dominance has just started, as he is only twenty, himself. During his interview with Nas, Tyler had several questions for personal reasons. As a rapper, it is a great opportunity to speak with someone who has been rapping as long as you have been living.
A major Nas fan, Tyler, the Creator talked with him about a number of topics. Tyler, the Creator told Nas his favorite albums from him were 2002 God's Son and 2004's Street's Disciple. Because Nas, Eminem, Jay-Z, and Snoop Dogg all started a twenty years old and have remained in the game, Tyler says he questions if he, too, can last for well over a decade and a half. Nas told Tyler, the Creator he definitely could last that long in the game.
When Tyler, the Creator asked Nas if he was happy, Nas told him his album is titled Life is Good, but if he could change one thing, he would have his children living with him. Nas has two children, a daughter, who was one topic in his legendary feud with Jay-Z, and a son with Kelis. For a few years, Nas and Kelis were married and their son was the product of their marriage. Shortly after his birth, Nas and Kelis' marriage fell apart and she was awarded primary custody over the child.
Nas said, aside form his children not being with him, life is indeed good, though.
