Rap veteran Nas graces the upcoming cover of Complex Magazine, opening up on topics ranging from his stance on Twitter to re-evaulating a woman's worth since divorcing R&B singer Kelis.
Based on an excerpt, Nasty Nas admits he does not allow Twitter chatter to ruffle his feathers.
"I don't understand how artists get pissed off at people on Twitter. I appreciate a good joke. I mean, who are you? Not to say that people should have the toughest skin, and nothing should bother you... Maybe it's just my age. I know who I am. I know what I've survived, and I know what I've done. That shit wasn't easy. So for someone who doesn't know anything about that to comment on it, you can't be mad at them. They don't know any better." (Complex)
He also discusses how a woman's physical appearance is no longer enough to win him over.
"I'm taken aback by the beauty of women. There was a time when I only saw big breasts and thick asses. Now, I see the beauty in the subtleties. Those are even better than the tits and ass. The aesthetics have changed for me. ... No disrespect to women when I say bad b*tch, but my definition of a bad b*tch is not always the video vixens. A bad b*tch can be a younger woman, in her early 20s, but wise beyond her years. It could be a woman in her late 30s, who's cool as h*ll, smart, and has great motherly qualities--or has great motivational skills, or is a powerful mover and shaker in her own career." (Complex)
Last week, Roc Nation protege J. Cole said he no longer gets down with Twitter.
"I'm not on Twitter no more, I'm not doing it and I'm not going to ... As an artist, I'm sitting back and I'm watching all these other artists who I respect -- some of them are big artists -- on Twitter fighting for attention. Every tweet is like, 'I'm looking for attention. Retweet me!' I saw that and same thing about songs, dropping songs, it all comes from this place of fear, like I don't want nobody to forget about me. It really comes from that place. But really your body of work speaks for you, so it's doing work even when you're not knowing it. But because people ain't talking about you on Twitter or you're not the trending topic or your mixtape ain't trending, you feel a certain kind of way.' (Bootleg Kev)
Although his marital status remains unknown, Nas recently spotted Young Money's Nicki Minaj a kiss in her new "Right By My Side" music video.
