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.”

    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.

    @ Southern Belle- Too funny with the “YES YOU CAN” I totally agree on that tip. On another note well said Nasir, but I am not surprised he holds these views he has always been concious of our society!!!

  • Cage

    @ Re: Damn that’s triflin i didnt know about that.. Are you talking about the book his baby’s mother wrote??

  • Yeah Right

    @ Cage

    And its dumb suckas like you who complain whats going on in the country, get off your lazy fat ass and vote!!! Punk ass

  • ALWAYSaLADY

    I fully agree with him except for the genocide comment. Police killing young black men is definatly f**ked up, but we (luckily) have never seen what real genocide is. Rawanda,the Congo, Hitler, etc.

    AMEN!! Can I get a WITNESS!!!

    As I always say – its about time someone addresses the role the black male plays in how the Judicial system sees him..

    PREACH!!!

  • Lauren

    Yes Police are killing young men but not hearly half as much as they are killing one another, we have to look at ourselves first to solve the solution before pointing fingers…

  • Yeah Right

    @SDMH

    YEAH IF YOU COMPARE HOW MANY BLACK COPS KILLED TO HOW MANY BLACK ON BLACK CRIMES, THE BLACK ON BLACK CRIMES STATS WOULD BE WAY HIGHER, DONT KNOW WHAT KIND OF “WISDOM” YOUR PREACHING, NEVER GET IN A PULPIT PLEASEE!!!!!!

    @Cage

    Yeah, that is one of them. When I read it I thought, “Well, this is coming from a suspect person anyway,” so I tried to stick by Nas cause I really like his music. But I read another hip hop book a couple years back (can’t remember the name, but it was about a music producer and the rappers he dealt with), and it pretty much explained how Nas is really overly hypocritical.

    I think the producer even said Nas and the baby-mother were going to be evicted cause he blew all the tour money on himself.

    But who isn’t hypocritical to a certain degree right? Plus, Nas was damn near a baby with too much money coming in at one time.
