Rapper, Nas says most hiphop artists are scared to visit Africa!
 

 
US rapper, Nas who has visited Africa three times already – once for his birthday and twice for corporate performances – has said that the reason why most of his colleagues never go to Africa is because they are afraid of the ‘dark continent’.

Answering questions at a recent press conference back home in the States, Nas said: “let’s go straight to it, people are scared. There‘s horror stories about Africa that’s out of this world…when I finally got there, I never knew what to expect, I didn’t send much, just brought a few of my jewelry… but I went there and I figured out that there’s been a lot of lies told to American people about what’s going on there…One thing about us African-Americans and Africans is that we don’t communicate, we don’t talk, we don’t see a reason to talk, we don’t get along.”

According to Nas, he grew up at a time when Bob Marley was talking about Africa Unity and so he got interested in reading more about Africa and to find out about his roots. He said a lot had to be done to change the image of Africa and hiphop artist, who are largely African-Americans have a role to play in changing the status quo.

He mentioned Nigeria as one of the places he visited in Africa and said it almost made him cry, seeing the living conditions of majority of the people there. He said hip-hop should find a way to communicate with Africa. He also raised questions about why rock stars like Bono seem to do so much in Africa and hiphop artists aren’t. “Hip-hop artists need to start by raising some voices”

Nas is right, but at the same time its kind of hard to care for a bunch of people that just dont like you for no reason at all.

There is nothing over there I wanna see or haven't seen before on Discovery Channel. I suppose it would be cool to visit as long as u stick to tourist hotspots. Would hate to go over there and get kidnapped and held for ransom

They don't care about you...Africans are really loving people, i mean not the ones doing war and sh*t, but the real people...take a plane, go over there i bet you will be amazed...
When it comes to afro-american, i bet they don't like them once they're living in the US, and they got good reasons for not loving them from my point of view...i've heard black dudes and girls saying the most racist/ignorant sh*t i've never heard about african people...
