Nas Talks Race Issues In America


Nas spoke with Time about race issues here in the United States. Nas compared what is going on in America to what Mandela fought against in South Africa regarding institutionalized segregation.

“It’s not cool to look like Apartheid South Africa 1988. How are we going to be the free world or the most powerful country when inside this country we’re fighting because of skin color? That’s just embarrassing,” said Nas. “I’m one of the guys that’s out there saying, ‘Listen, it has to stop.”

Nas on coming together:

“There’s a lot of healing that needs to come onto this country,” stated Nas. “America, we are really smart enough to figure it out, but I guess it’s safer to hang out and be ignorant, be hateful, and think that one person is better than the other.”
