For the most recent cover story of XXL featuring Nas, he was interviewed by Tyler, the Creator. The result is not your typical interview, and XXL gives us some of the highlights from their conversation (which ranged from talk of God, drugs, and Bruno Mars). Check it out below!
On Bruno Mars:
Nas: “Are we gonna see you and Bruno gunning after eachother with AKs? What’s going on with that?”
Tyler: “I don’t hate Bruno. I hate his haircut, and his music pisses me off. Like, you ever been driving in a car, and, you know, you’re driving, going through the freeway, and then some fuck boy cuts you off, and it fucks everything up? That’s how I feel when I hear his music.”
Nas: “So you don’t believe in God?”
Tyler: “Nah. I just live life. I grew up in a Christian family, but, you know, the way Mom brought me up is to, you know, do you, to always be yourself.”
Tyler: “I never had a drink in my life. I don’t smoke or anything.
Nas: “You mean, you’re just naturally like this?
Nas: “That’s fuckin’ crazy.”
On the Internet:
Tyler: I don’t get on the Internet as much anymore. it drives me crazy.
Nas: The Internet is Satan.
Tyler: Dude! I said the same thing! I hate Tumblr. You know what Tumblr is? I fuckin’ hate Tumblr! That shit is evil. I’ve seen that shit turn people crazy.
Nas: I don’t even know what that is.
On Nas’ upcoming album:
Nas: The album is coming this year.
Tyler: Is there a certain sound for it?
Nas: There’s a couple of them. “Nasty” was important for me, you know? To be this deep in the game, to go back to the sound I kinda started on: great beats, no chorus, just rhymes, doing whatever I want to do. That’s part of the sound to it. The part of the sound to it is also me smoked out, gangsta shit. I think there’s some other pieces of it that’s personal. Different sounds…
HipHopDX recently caught up with B.o.B. to talk about the rumours of him and T.I. working on a collaborative album entitled The Man and The Martian.
Check out what B.o.B. has to say on it:
HipHopDX: Talk a bit about The Man and The Martian album that you and T.I. are reportedly working on…
B.o.B.: The Man and The Martian is something we’re talking about, an idea that we’re playing with. We just kinda wanna let it happen and record as we see fit.
DX: That idea’s kind of crazy though.
B.o.B.: Mars and Earth aren’t too far apart. [Laughs]
DX: So you’re Mars.
B.o.B.: I mean, they’re interchangeable.
DX: Your styles are vastly different from one another. Will the album be you and T.I. playing off of each other or more of you meeting in the middle?
B.o.B.: I feel like when me and [T.I.] get in the studio, we can organically make music and Tip actually co-produced one of the songs on my [The Adventures of Bobby Ray] album, “Fifth Dimension.” A lot of people don’t even know that, so I have a lot of confidence that we’ll show people just how close Earth and Mars are.
DX: When did you start talking about doing a collaborative album?
B.o.B.: It’s been something that’s always been in the air, but it’s kinda has to materialize at its own pace but I would be prepared to see some music coming from The Man and The Martian.
