Nas Talks Being in the Game for 20 Years, Turning 40, Why Hip-Hop is Still Dead, His NY State of Mind, the “N” Word and More (Video)

To quote AZ Tha Visualiza, this is rather unique. Nas, on his 40th birthday, has “Talk Stoop” with NBC host Cat Greenleaf. The two discuss the state of the art through Nas’ 20 years in the game. Perhaps most interesting, Cat asks the father for advice on helping her own children, in regards to the controversial n-word. This is the type of conversation with Hip-Hop elite that you can’t get just anywhere. With so many introspective and insightful lyrics over the years, see what Nasir says.

If you were just chillin’ on the stoop with Nasty Nas, what would you ask him?
