For the latest cover story from XXL, Nas sat down for an interview, but it wasn’t your typical Q&A. This time, the person conducting the interview was none other than the Tyler, The Creator. It turned out to be less like an interview and more like a conversation with the young, rebellious newcomer and the veteran rap star talking about topics ranging from Bruno Mars to God. Check out some highlights 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? Tyler: “Yeah” Nas: “That’s fuckin’ crazy.”
