Tyler, The Creator , one of our 21 Under 21: Hottest Minors, took a pen and pad to interview one of hip-hop's greatest MC's, Nas . In the November 2011 issue of XXL , Tyler goes deep with questions ranging from music, religion, family, drugs, the 'net, and even Star Wars.
Clearly a fan, the Odd Future member asked Nasir Jones about staying around in the game. "You, Em , Jay , Snoop , like, you guys all started when you was exactly my age," Tyler said. "The fact that you guys are still here makes me just always think, like, F*ck, could I?"
Nasty Nas hurled a compliment right back. "Oh, you definitely can," he replied. "Someone like you is, you're interesting, for a lot of reasons. So someone like you, you can't wait to see what's next."
Lasting reportedly more than an hour and a half, we learn insights about both rap superstars in the exchange between both.
In an exclusive excerpt given to MissInfo.tv , Nas speaks of his 17 yr. old daughter, Destiny. "It's crazy, because when she was young, she was a baby, I thought, Aw, man, I'm gonna quit this rap shit before she becomes old enough to even know what I'm doing, what I did for a living. I never thought that I'd be still doing it while she's a teen, growing up. And I'm still in the game. It kind of f*cks me up."
Nas released the first video "Nasty" from his upcoming 10th studio album "Life Is Good," yesterday (Oct. 11) while earlier today (Oct. 12), Tyler, The Creator released a video for the controversial satire "B*tch Suck D*ck" from his debut effort, "Goblin." "B*tch Suck D*ck" features Odd Future's Taco and Jasper.
