Nas Opens Up About ‘Mentally & Physically Hard’ COVID-19 Battle
 

 
ig_rid=c0a4eedb-37cb-4fdf-9f99-e58f62795e8f
"The pandemic allowed Nas to step back from touring and traveling to focus on music, resulting in winning his first ever Grammy for King’s Disease. But the changes didn’t come without setbacks to his health.

During a recent cover story for Ebony, the Queensbridge rapper revealed he tested positive for COVID-19 in October 2020, which took its toll on him.

“I caught COVID in late October,” Nas said. “This is the first time [I’m] mentioning it. It was a tough time. It was mentally and physically hard. It’s just today’s world, with chemical warfare, crazy politics, racism, food shortages, police malpractice, Black-on-Black murder. The human spirit is being tested. I think that God has a plan for all of this. But right now, we’re in a serious time.”

Elsewhere in the interview, Nas explained how he gets stopped more for investment tips than rap advice nowadays. After reportedly becoming $100m richer in April, it’s no wonder.

“I got people that stop me in the street to ask me about investment tips more than music,” Nas revealed. “It’s really crazy, man. I met another Black man named Nasir; he’s doing his thing. He told me how I’m inspirational to him in that world of investors and fundraising. That’s what I get a lot now. That’s really rewarding. It used to be only, ‘I’m inspired by you to rap,’ which I still hear, and I still love it. But it’s about letting people know, ‘This is what I’m doing. You do it, too.’”

He also co-signed New York-born, New Jersey-raised rapper Lady London and talked about wanting to be put alongside some of the Hip Hop greats.

“I like Lady London,” Nas said. “Kendrick Lamar. Cordae. I think rappers today have [an] entrepreneurial spirit, and they know even more than what I used to and are seizing opportunities. They just have to balance the street and their long-term goals.”

As for his legacy, he admitted, “I just wanna become as great as the ones I came up thinking were the greatest. Big Daddy Kane, Kool G Rap, LL, Slick Rick, Ice Cube—the list goes on. I just wanna be able to look at myself and say that I did what they are doing.”

The strangest sh*t for me has been everything literally smelling like beef. It’s hard to explain but I got COVID way back in February. Lost my smell for a while but taste never left. My smell finally had came back around March but it wasn’t fully back. By like may everything was back to normal. No cap for the last month and a half this beefy smell has been consistent with damn near everything. All my weed smell like it. Food smells like it. It’s weird as hell. It’s to the point I had sloppy joe last night n couldn’t finish it because it literally smells like everything I’ve been smelling.

I’m vaccinated so idk if it’s a lingering COVID symptom or possibly even a vaccine symptom. I’d still recommend the vaccine at least to people who travel. Me and my girl was in Puerto Rico last month and while we were there the vaccine proof kicked in for bars and places. We were good because we had the card but they really do enforce it. That’s also where I started noticing the beef smell. I thought it was cuz maybe the cooked with a lot of pork but nope it’s been consistent since then

You’re in every thread that mentions vaccines or Covid like a fu*king troll. You have no life. You’re a loser. No matter how much you squeal about Covid or vaccines, the VAST majority in this country accept common sense. You lose.

Not sure abt the smell thing, i think mines is back fine, i just been having lingering congestion, which may be from smoking vs covid, but other than that, everything seems normal.

yeah to his/her own with taking the vax, either way, we all still got the same 50/50 chance of waking up tomorrow, live life!

99% sounds good, but it isn't.

41,600,600 covid cases in the US
667,000 covid deaths in the US

99% survival rate still means 700K dead Americans.

LOL of you lost your smell and taste you had it..what else makes you lose your smell and taste?

My wife still doesnt have either back since last Nov. Thats what Nas mean by "takes a toll" not everyone that doesnt end up in the hospital has it minor or bounces right back.

I noticed he didnt wanna give any details about his experience judging by some of the posts its was missed opportunity to tamp down some ignorance..
