Nas On Success, “I Never Became Bigger Than The Music”
“You take your chain off, you live your real life.”
Nas paid a visit to Big Boy’s Neighborhood recently and was asked to explain his success. Nas, who just released his 10th album in Life Is Good, greatly attributed his success and longevity to taking his craft serious and never letting his ego get too big. He told Big Boy, “I never became bigger than the music.” Nas is celebrated as one of the best to ever do it, earning a top 5 spot in pretty much everybody’s top 5, even the most crotchety of rap fans. Nas also recalls the new first rap he wrote, which was penned at age 8, and by this performance, was pretty damn good. Watch the interview below.
