Nas talks politics:

“There never been a president to address the slaughter of young black people by this country’s police. When your government’s police are killing one section of people, that’s genocide. There’s never been a president to even acknowledge it. You don’t acknowledge that? That’s a big thing President Obama has to recognize when he gets in office. I’m five presidents in … and I ain’t seen nothing happen to stop the police murders on young, black people,” he added. “Why would I believe in the system? With that being said, I think Barack can cure that disease and help cure the country. Not just in that area with us blacks, but also with all Americans. Women are getting treated like dogs. You know how hard it is for a woman to prove she was raped? The system is warped. They throw young guys — who’s starving — in jail just trying to survive on the streets. Throw them in jail forever. Young kids, 18 years old, executed in Texas. Yet, child predators get to come home and do it again. I think it’s so much our president can do. [Obama] seems like a human being. I say that because a lot of presidents don’t seem like human beings. They seem like straight-up businessmen who care about nothing but the business. Nah, you gotta care about the people.”

    I love Nas. He is one of the few celebs who are socially concious and outspoken. Most of them just stay quiet to insure there spots at all of the premieres and parties.

  • Meather

    This dude is found at the interracial club blackcentury.com a moment ago. He has created a personal profile to seek young and hot girls out of his race there.

    When your government’s police are killing one section of people, that’s genocide.

    *************************************************

    The police don’t kill enough people to call it genocide. How many black people did police kill in LA last year? Now compare that to the number of black people that were killed by other black people.

    We are committing genocide against ourselves. I’d prefer Barack or any president address that. Let’s be real. Nas is not even educated. Why do people think he is so smart? He’s not.

    I’m going to be straight up honest. I found out through various books that Nas is so reckless at and totally irresponsible, never came around to take care of his daughter, etc- all this was going on while he was preaching about some wonderful things on his rhymes. I was so devasterd, and it’s really hard to take him seriously because he’d conflict everything he rapped about to the tenth power. And I bought the majority of his albums.

    With that said, I do agree with that statement above, it’s very honest. I hope this guy can get his life together, cause it seems like his heart is in the right place.

    I SO agree with that.
