Nas on Derrion Albert w/ CNN’s Don Lemon
Two things are sorta striking to me here:
1) The weird smirk he has on the whole time.. the whole time, and
2) With due respect to whoever posted this originally, he does not sound brilliant here, he sounds like an idiot. Not Cam’ron-on-60minutes-stupid, no, but that “being-a-rapper-is-the-one-place-you-get-power-with-NO-responsibility” argument is sooooo lame nowadays… and Nas knows this if noone else does.. thats probably why he’s holding back laughter- that and the fact they start with a clip from one of the wackest- and least reresentative- songs of his career…
Whatever tho- guess he WAS better than some of the others they couldve had as reps for hiphop on this nat’l platform… What do you think? How did he do here?
