Nas has just had enough of President Trump & his antics and decided to release an open letter to fans about his views on politics, race, and their President. Written via Mass Appeal, in the letter Nas opens his letter up about race.
“The only way the black man gets a little piece in America is if he takes the O.J. stance: ‘I’m not black, I’m O.J.,’ – Nas
“When you ignore the shit that’s happening to people you can live in this fantasy, this American fantasy that you belong to… who? You ignore what’s happening, and that gives you peace. Because what’s going on is enough to make people insane.” – Nas
Nas also tackled issues of racism in politics & everyday life by saying “When you have the responsibility of being President and you carry on like that, you send a strong message to people outside of your group that they ain’t worth shit,”
Lastly, he addressed his thoughts on Trump and wrote “The Creator put us here to do our thing, so I do my thing. And I don’t pay attention to politics at the moment. For what? There’s no reason. For me, it doesn’t make any sense. We all know a racist is in office. People can talk their sh*t. Comedians can sound racist. People can go through their moments of that sh*t, but when you have the responsibility of being President and you carry on like that, you send a strong message to people outside of your group that they ain’t worth sh*t.”
