Dec 6 - Nas: .. "To the South's credit, they kept the lights on...for at least 2 year"
 

 
Pitchfork: So you think there's a place for groups like Dem Franchize Boyz?

Nas: Definitely. To the South's credit, they kept the lights on in hip-hop for at least two years. And I rock with all their records. Hip-hop ain't died because of the South, that's retarded. When I named the album originally, I thought I bit off more than I could chew but you'd be an idiot to think I'm talking about how the South k!lled hip-hop or how New York isn't where it should be or where it once was. It was like, "Damn, I need to explain this?" But I thought, "Nah, the proof is right there. We should know what it is." I expect the hip-hop audience to be avant garde. I want them to be where I'm at or beyond where I'm at.

8 years. They weren't running sh*t 8 years ago, they were making noise but not running ish. Heads like Dre, Em, 50, Jay, Nas, Ja Rule and DMX were running sh*t. The south didn't really GRAB it till like 2004. But like I said, they've been a presence since 96 w/ no limit and cash money for real.

cant really blame them n*ggas for jumping on Nas. He might not have meant it in that way, but his followers took it to discrediting members of the south. I for one get pissed when i read a thread that says the south aint sh*t, or the south k!lled hip-hop. However, big ups to n*gga Nas.

a CD title is always a big thing. its like the theme of an album, something with the title of a book, it tells you what you gonna hear about.

I see what you sayin but at the same time them n*ggas should have just waited to see what he said not respondin b4 he explained the title thats jus a sign of ignorance for those who did respond as soon as they heard the title
