Wow, already been 20 years in the game and to commemorate this great achievement, Nas returns on the cover of XXL. The issue hits newsstands on October 25th, so be sure to check it out. While you wait, here is an excerpt between Nas and his guest interviewer, Tyler, The Creator. XXL’s cover designed by Mister Cartoon.
“God’s Son is my favorite album by you,” Tyler said. “And my second is probably Street’s Disciple,” he continued.
“Get the fuck outta here,” Nas responded.
Awkward and quirky exchanges aside, the discussion quickly picked up with the 20-year-old Tyler asking Nas for advice.
“You, Em, Jay, Snoop, like, you guys all started when you was exactly my age,” Tyler said. “The fact that you guys are still here makes me just always think, like, Fuck, could I?”
“Oh, you definitely can,” Nas replied. “Someone like you is, you’re interesting, for a lot of reasons. So someone like you, you can’t wait to see what’s next.”
