Am I the only one reading this who doesnt take it as a diss?

He just said that Nas is one of the few rappers that's really smart. Sounds like a compliment to me.

He just basically said that him being all preachy and intelectual stuff made Nas lose the momentum that he use to have. He's really just saying that if anyone in general wants to sell rap records you have to dumb it down.

so basically what 50 is saying is that 95 percent of rappers are dumb,and 100 percent of fans are dumb....sounds like a recipe to increase your fan base....................................

nas is the man, hes on the level of biggie and pac with his lyrics...ok so maybe he wasnt quite as good as him, but at least he raps about sh*t besides how big his pockets are and how many hoes hes fu*ked. That sh*t is straight but it gets old, Nas can lyrically slay most of these bi*ches today.

you guys sure know how to twist a person's two sentences into some of the weirdest sh*t i've read. since when did he said reading means you're gay and all that. not to mention this isn't even the full interview. i doubt he is trying to say people shouldn't read books considering he has a fukkin book himself. he's just saying [which i agree] some rappers tend to preach issues in songs on a complex level rather than try to drop sh*t normal people can relate to [he even speaks on krs-one doing this on the 2nd part of the interview]. like pac wasn't lyrically like a canibus or a chino xl, but he dropped messages in words everyone could understand. you didn't have to pick up a dictionary to get what he was saying, like some of these rappers tend to do [i don't know about nas, considering i dont listen to his new stuff].. he isn't at all saying every other rapper is dumb and being dumb is cool. all in all i think he was trying to say what saigon said in that one interview

you have to pick up a book to understand rappers

rappers are NORMAL ppl

hahaha, 50 must have some kind of weird obsession with nas. he continues keep nas name in his mouth when nas barely acknowledges 50's existence.
No sh*t... that n*gga will never be on Nas' level. lol.

he basically just said all rappers are dumb including him
thats what i got from it


but what i really dont understand is, hes telling nas to stop reading books, while on the other hand 50 has a line of books doesnt he? how can you publish books and at the same time say people are weird if they read books. as a rapper arent you 'drifting away' from your audience more when you publish books? i also thought most good rappers read books.

i bought the new xxl and i dont remember reading this. He discussed more in the lines of the state of G Unit, him going back to his grand ma's house in queens to write his album and things of that nature can anybody agree with me or I'm I not seeing this in the XXL mag?

dude fifty is a sell out..yes he gets money..and sure at some point in the game ya gotta do you...but its funny he act like the tour was the first time he been around nas...wasnt 50 kickin it nas and bravehearts at some point??
and whats funny too is he says that not everyone in hip hop is intelligent...he just sh*tted on the whole industry more than nas...nas`s audience btw is an intelligent artist so he will always sell...but why is fifty pushin his album back..cause this time around catz dont even now about the curtis album..he is the one who has alienated his fanbase...he sells cause he caters to britney spears, and christina aguilera fans, and corny old surbanites..
