    Have to admit this guy has done a phenomenal job for managing Nas. The only thing I wish he did for Nas is get him a real A&R on the music side. Dope interview!

    • Brian B.Dot™ Miller

      NEED a new nas album tho. sheesh.

      • supreme

        First and foremost Nas is numero uno imo! Secondly with the right production Nas is unstoppable. We definitely need a new album

      Define “dick riding”, Ms Rose.

  • BIGGER Fishes 2 Cook

    Nas lyrical content is impeccable. My gripe with him is the production choices that sometimes don’t do him justice. He needs a good A&R. Hell, even Ross can do that job for him.

    • Mainframe

      definitely, he’d be more popular today if he worked with younger producers. i’d love to hear nas over some updated beats.

      • Santigo

        Nah, actually that’s the opposite of what Nas should do. Nas has a sound that sounds good with certain sounds. Jazzy, Funky, Dusty, Grimey, Triumphant soundscapes…can’t think of 1 single young producer that would give him what the guys he should work with can…(Hi Tek, Madlib, Buckwild, Alchemist, Jake One, Preemo, Pete Rock, Large Pro, Qtip, Just Blaze, Nashiem Myrick, etc)

        • Mainframe

          i think he’d sound dope over beats by producers like dahi, kaytranada, hit-boy, j. cole, boi-1da, vinylz etc. i didn’t necessarily mean young producers, just producers with a modern sound. we’ve all heard nas over the same boom bap style for years, would be refreshing to hear him evolve his sound.

          • @WorldFamous_Kev

            Metro Boomin’? DJ Mustard? Minnie Fresh?

        • @WorldFamous_Kev

          Kanye West?
