Nas Talks Trayvon Martin And How DIVORCING KELIS Revealed His Money Woes!

 

Low-key rap icon Nas sat down with MTV RapFix Live host Sway recently where he talked about his start in the rap game, his thoughts on Trayvon Martin and how people found out about his financial status.  Get the deets inside.....

 

Nas chatted with Sway recently about the early days of rap and revealed a bit of rap trivia associated with his song "Hate Me Now." Nas said the track was the first song Funkmaster Flex ever dropped bombs on (and now that's become an industry staple for DJs).

And though he was respectful as possible (but you could hear the bitterness) he talked about how his divorce from Kelis (and his first baby's mom) affected his finances.  He said,

"I wound up paying more money to baby mommas than what some of my rap brothers and sisters make."   He also added that he regrets how the divorce let people know a lot about his finances.

And on the Trayvon Martin case, Nas said it makes him think about his son's future.  "It's a rage that goes through you that makes you want to react in all kinds of ways...But violence is not the answer.  But what do people do when there is no justice?"  But on a lighter note, he added that Trayvon will now have a legacy.

Love Nas but, I find it hard

Love Nas but, I find it hard to sympathize with him in respect to his divorce. He was cheating on her and during a pergnancy no less. Kelis was vindictive as hell in how she handled the situation, but divorce and hurt will bring out the worse in people. It's nice that he's opening up about how losing his marriage affected him he spoke more about it w/Angie. He's usually so low-key so hearing him talk about how it depressed him was interesting. I wish him the best and hope he's able to be happy again.

I don't think Nas is looking

I don't think Nas is looking for sympathy & I also don't think that Nas alledged cheating was the true cause of their divorce. What I appreciate about Nas is his honest feelings about this issue. He seems to have been truly in love but became disappointed in his ex-wife for reasons not known to the public.

Kelis has said that his

Kelis has said that his cheating was was what tiggered her filing for divorce, so that was the cause for her leaving according to her. I do agree that he appears to have been very in love with her and it was a shame she was unable to see that. I don't know what he's lookning for and neither do you, but let's all just wish him the best in finding whatever it is.

Nas you have taught me a valued lesson, even as the articulate guy that you are sometimes men make the wrong choices in regards to women.

Whomever made that comment of

Whomever made that comment of "jay z does have another baby" NO HE DOESN'T! like seriously! do you think that chick would be THIS quiet if she really had Jay Z baby? Yea, she ran to a tabloid and told her story and posted a picture of a child that happen to resemble him. That doesn't make her a babymomma! Hell, we still see pics of other celebrity babymoms - why not her? why doesn't she have a show/blog etc? because she knows shes a dirty liar and if she really were to go public and beat this dead horse..she would get done the same way that chick that was claiming to be Justin Bieber babymomma! Jay and Bey would have gotten lawyers to either make this women prove he's the father or STFU! please stop trying to hate! AND let's just address this issue while were at it. In the even that Jay Z DID have a baby with this "women" clearly he was with Beyonce at the time - so what did this jumpoff expect? Women kill me hooking up with these men in committed relationships - getting pregnant - and then getting made when "they baby" isn't getting the love/support that the other kids do! Your baby is a "keep a nigga" baby! You were a sidepiece! You don't get public outtings, holidays or anything like that. you dont get a partner, your kids dont get a daddy! get over it! you get a check and that's it! gosh!

Jay Z DOES have another baby.

Jay Z DOES have another baby. The baby mother was PAID very well to keep quiet. She actually forfeits the payments and have to pay him if she talks about or allows others (assuming) close to her to talk about the child. Listen, if jay does not want to talk about his own flesh and blood, who are we to judge?

Nas is the epitome of TRUTH!

Nas is the epitome of TRUTH! You can tell by the way he expresses his feelings about divorce that it was an emotional time for him. Most hip hop artists are so use to frontin that when an artist like Nasir speaks most people feel uneasy because they are NOT use to REALNESS! "I never brag how real I keep it because it's the best kept secrete."-Nasir Olu Dara Jones

He should of never married or

He should of never married or knocked up a woman who wasn't on his level success and career wise. You know how these women are always trying to come up through marriage and kids. That's where Jay-z is smart, dude never knocked up any ole chick. He married Beyonce someone who is on his level success wise.

Nas has money that's for damn

Nas has money that's for damn sure but I also think that the speculation about his divorce and taxes will be used has PROMOTION because truthfully everyone has been gossiping about this for years and Nas will now use it to his advantage. NAS IS WAY SMARTER THAN SOME GIVE HIM CREDIT! Was there ever any real documentation presented about Nas taxes by the IRS?

Damn,Nas is one

Damn,Nas is one fine,articulate,handsome specimen. I'm 21 and I would definitely date Nas. I still don't know what attracted Nas handsome ass to Kelis one hit wonder weirdo ass. He should've never had a kid by that non talented ass woman. I bet Nas learned his lesson. Btw: NY guys are handsome especially those Brooklyn dudes(yummy).

Nas is very intelligent and

Nas is very intelligent and usually smart ppl are attracted to like minded ppl. Kelis doesn't conform to what a rapper/singer should look/act like and unfortunantely becuase she's not cookie cut she dubbed weird and she is very talented but because does things her way not like the rest it not understood. And she had a few more hits than 1 but you being 21 you many be too young to have had the opportunity to experience diversity in music and know that she was doind the colorful hair and clothes well b4 Nicki and those other chicks.
