Hip-Hop Rumors: Nas Calls ‘Net “The Devil” & Other Quickies


Nas Calls the Internet “The Devil”…

In the November 2011 issue of XXL, Odd Future member Tyler, the Creator had the honor of interviewing Nasir for the magazine’s cover story. When asked about Nas’ thoughts on Twitter, Tumblr, and the Internet in general, he said:

No I never look at it. I have a team that operates that sh*t for me. They’ll send me questions, and I answer them. That’s it. I was a prank caller when I was a young kid…I look at the Internet as prank callers. You don’t know who they are. They’re having fun. Actually, I’m not mad at that…You could do some good with the Internet, of course. But it’s, like, a man with horns. Not even a man–a dark force with horns–behind the whole sh*t.”

I guess that’s a good thing, the less time he spend on the internet, the more time he’ll be spending on his album, Life Is Good, which Hip-Hop needs ASAP!

Quickies:

-MF Doom will be working with the band Radiohead. Interesting would be an understatement.

-Lil Wayne, Nelly, Andre 3000, T.I. and Big K.R.I.T. will all make appearances on B.o.B.’s sophomore album Strange Clouds. Read up on our B.o.B. listening session review here.

-Justin Beiber has announced that both Kanye West and Drake will be on his next album. Beiber can currently be heard rapping alongside Busta Rhymes on his Christmas album, Under the Mistletoe. We wish that last part was a joke.

-Guinness Book of World Records has named Samuel L. Jackson the highest grossing actor of all time. That’s over 100 movies that have made over $7.4 billion, mother f*cker.

-Rumors have been swirling that actor Russell Brand and singer Katy Perry’s marriage is on the rocks, and supposedly Rihanna has something to do with this. Huhhhh? Could Ri Ri be fooling with Russell or Katy?

  • DOOM has worked with Thom Yorke of Radiohead before, so interesting isn’t really the word I would use to describe it.  Thom Yorke remixed the track Gazzzillion Ear which was on his last LP.  Also, this is super old news.  They have been talking about this for months, maybe even a year now.

    NaS is on point. Everyone gets mics, but no one has earned them. Internet hands out 15 mins every 15 mins. NaS in my top 5 but man he be messin up so many facts lol. I just love where his heads at with rhymes. He tries, and that’s sayin allot these days. 

    I think I’ve heard more about Beiber on AllHipHop this week than anything….why? 

    Samuel L is crazy! Highest grossing of all time is remarkable. A good look. 187 / Pulp Fiction / A Time to Kill / Losing Isiah / Juice / Fresh….on and on. He’s the hardest working Actor / Producer in ShowbiZ.

    “We see Samuel L Jackson like WHATS UP Mutha F#&kA!”

  • Like Nas, however, he is wrong about the internet.  I think if he had a chance to rephrase it, he maybe would have stated things about the manipulation and bastardization of components of the internet.  Out of all the inventions that were key to creating the world of mass communication, the telephone is number one. Bell wanted us to be able to communicate in ways that were more efficient, exact, implied an emotional connotation, and effective.  I state this because the internet is the offspring of the phone.  In other places in the world, people are being unjustly segregated because of their lack of usage of the internet.  Mass media sells the same talking points, plays the same music promoting lifestyles nobody has lived, promoting agendas.  The internet is a place where you can seek out truth through research and stated facts that helps you heighten you compulsion towards intensed logic and understanding. How is the internet a bad thing when all of you below me, and above will have an outlet to express your opinion no matter how wrong or right it is. The last thing anyone would want in this world would be to inhibit forums of communication such as the internet. Therefore, I respectfully disagree with Nas… great street and life poet, however, he’s wrong about the internet.

    It’s a shame Nas never examines any of the things he’s said currently or in the past! I remember when he said he dropped out of school in the 7th grade! That means this dude doesn’t really have a grasp of “basic” knowledge: Of self and/or his society!! It’s 2011, almost 2012 & this “coon” thinks that technology is evil, yet it makes him money on a daily basis!?! What a herb! Over the past 15 years, I’ve listened to Nas get dumber & dumber, while Jay-Z only says intelligent things! The funny thing is, they get paid to say INTELLIGENT things! Crazy! Sorry, Nas catches a BIG “C’mon Son” & “FAIL” of the day honours today!!
