With 20 years in the rap game Nas is well deserving for the cover of XXL magazine. In celebration of his twenty year tenure veteran Nas is interviewed by rookie rapper Tyler The Creator for his cover story.
Tyler asks, “Are you, like—this question might catch you off guard, but I ask myself this—like, when you wake up, like, are you happy. Like, are you satisfied how everything turned out?”
“Dawg, I was naming my album Life Is Good because of how happy I am about how happy things have turned out,” Nas answered. “Sometimes I may wake up and wish my kids were living with me. That’s the only thing, you know what I mean? Our loved ones that are not around no more, like my mom. That’s the only thing. But other than that, everything is great, even when I’m alone. Even when there’s no one around.”
This issue hits stands on October 25th.
