Nas’ life is hardly an open book, but slowly, but surely the pages are starting to turn. The Queensbridge rapper has had a seismic shift in his life, priorities and has begun to let the public into his life. It started with his groundbreaking album Street’s Disciple. It offered songs with his father, odes to his lovely wife Kelis and a bevy of personal sagas. After allowing ABC to chronicle his wedding, Nas intends to publicly explore his life and times at greater length. But, the more things change, the more they don’t and Nasir Jones had something to say about marriage, books and movies, but also 50 Cent, Murder Inc., The Game, Scarface and plenty more. AllHipHop.com: I know you are a little tight-lipped about this, but can you talk about the movie on your life? Nas: The thing I’m writing is about my life. That’s basically it. AllHipHop.com: Now, is it really going to be your life, because a lot of artists like 50 and Eminem have biopics, but the stories are altered in Hollywood. Nas: Yeah, you can’t give them everything. But, it’s going to be a lot in there. Who knows if somebody wants to go to a movie theater and watch your life - everything that really happened. That’s not necessarily movie material. Its documentary material, but movie material is to be smart about it to give it that movie magic. AllHipHop.com: For about four or five years, I’ve heard about you writing short stories, but now you are moving into the novel realm. What can we expect? Nas: It’ll be street tales from me. It’ll be based on my life too, my experiences and what I’ve seen. . AllHipHop.com: No disrespect, but a lot of the street urban books that are available now are really simple to read. Your lyrical style really isn’t like that. Nas: I think if you’ve listened to my music before then you would have a certain type of interest for the book, for each page to see what’s on the next page. It’s not poetry, but it goes hand-in-hand. AllHipHop.com: You had your wedding on TV, being such a private person, what made you do that? Nas: I agreed to it, because this is what my wife [Kelis] wanted. And they also agreed to give us a copy of the entire wedding edited up really nicely. We didn’t have to do it ourselves. They had us with professional cameras up there so we can have that whole marriage together forever. And, an important thing that she brought to my attention was that Black men should see this. AllHipHop.com: A lot of rappers are married on the low or whatever. It’s not really “cool” to be married as a rapper. Nas: I didn’t know how to hide it. It wasn’t my intention to make it hugely public or keep it real quiet. It was just “It is.” It wound up being in my music and it’s never been done. I said, “Hey, that’s cool.” I like doing things that brother’s have never done. So, it gives me a balance, because where at one point I am very low [profile], another point is I need these things to keep my face out there. At the same time, it’s going on with the album. When you see me and my girl, it’s not a show for us, but as a man, I’m talking grown man things. I think it’s just for this album, but it was what was happening in my life – I was planning a wedding – so this is what was happening in my music. AllHipHop.com: Rap is youth-oriented, but some of the biggest names in rap are 30 and up. Its not necessarily reflected in the music. Nas: My whole career, I’ve been able to talk about crazy s**t. But this year, I’ve been engulfed in wedding planning, engulfed in life changing things, outside of the wedding. All kinds of things. It gets into the music, because I don’t hear it in nobody else’s music besides Scarface. I don’t hear it with nobody else. AllHipHop.com: What’s up with Ill Will Records and what made you sign Quan, your new artist? Nas: Quan is somebody that my boy introduced me to as somebody who raps and sings. So that’s what made me want to get with him. And he produces as wel,l so he’s a multi-talent. It’s not like somebody just rhyming. A lot of dudes just rhyme and that’s cool, bit I wanted to try something different. AllHipHop.com: Does Hip-Hop bore you these days? Nas: It can, if you let it. You can’t let it. And you have to look into it and know that there is something good in there. And know that these artists are good and they are developing in front of our eyes. So, it’s not good to put nobody down. I like almost all the artists out there. It bores you because there are no more albums and that’s why I made a double album, because Street’s Disciple is like Life After Death, Me Against World or [Wu Tang’s] The W and Scarface’s My Homies. There are no albums anymore. AllHipHop.com: With the label, do you have other artists? Nas: Yeah, I have other artists that we’re developing now. I want to make this a year where I do take time and have faith in these new artists and let them do their thing. AllHipHop.com: Are The Bravehearts still doing their thing? I know things got shaky with the album. Nas: They’re definitely working again. They went through a learning experience. They are working at it again. They played some stuff for me and it’s hard.
