50 Cent has a few words of advice for Nas in the new issue of XXL: put down the book. When asked, "What percentage of MCs in hip-hop do you think are actually intelligent?" 50 replied: "You have different kinds of people. You have people that are extremely book-smart that lack common sense, so they don't know what's going to affect their audience. ... For instance, Nas is a really smart guy. He reads books constantly. We were around him on the Nastradamus tour. He was almost weirder than me 'cause we would go to breakfast and he'd be there reading a book. Conceptually, I think that's what made him drift away from what his initial audience enjoys from him and why he's not hot right now." In the interview, 50 also insisted Jim Jones should be running Dipset ó he's "a more credible artist than Cam'ron is," 50 said ó revealed that he's been trying to hook up with M.O.P. and admitted that he doesn't eat cookies because he's looking after his weight. ...

This is the same mentality that a lot of African-Americans suffer from, and it's bullsh*t. Reading is corny, gay, and square. What the hell happened to being intelligent and street smart? No one should have to fit into one box because life is full of variety. 50 Cent sounds ignorant. NAS is one of the throwbacks to the conscious rappers that came before him that managed to blend African-American history and politics with decent beats. So 50 is the corny a.ss one because he's playing into all of the typical stereotypes. I hope that NAS keeps on doing his thing.

CO-SIGNS BOTH^^ either way it's k!llin 50.

if he spits, he'll murder him(50). plus once nas come at 50 DIRECTLY, im willing to bet that 100 rappers will follow out of respect for nas.

2. nas not even ACKNOWLEDGING 50, is makin 50 look stupid. but wat 50 said makes sense slightly.
i agree....

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.

people on here to quick to jump down on 50 did u even understand or atleast read nething past the title of the thread..hes sayin when ur a person who is very smart u go over the heads of your fans how many people would understand a rap song by nas on the theory of relativity or a alot of math theorom and science laws and for that matter who want to listen to it. some people dont even know what those are if they do know what it is they know its super boring. u have to have simple rymes for simple people which is y this is y im hot was the biggest record this year followed by ay bay bay im very well educated but i dont want hear educational sh*t when i pop in my ipod earphones
