The Queensbridge MC is a legend in the game and is known to keep his ear to the streets. In an interview with Rap-Up, he claimed two east-coast rappers had that "it" factor.
He spoke of Harlem's Azealia Banks' hit single and her immediate impact, “I fuck with that ‘212'... she has incredible star power, you can see it already. I think we need that. To come across the total package in this game, you need more than just a hot 16 and not everybody is blessed with the total package. She has it.”
The next artist that Nas gave props to was Philadelphia's own Meek Mill. “I got my eyes on him. He’s the next one to take this shit over. I’m rooting for him,” said Nas. “There are no more street orators in the game, who are fresh off the block and can tell us currently what’s going on. So you gotta appreciate him. We have to support Meek Mill’s movement because he’s talking about real life and if we don’t support that, then what are we doin’?”
Nas recently worked with Meek on his debut album, Dreams & Nightmares. His 10th album Life Is Good drops on July 17th. You can also check him out at the Rock The Festival in a city near you this summer.
