Nas recently spoke to Vibe for their “A Long Convo” series. The celebrated rapper chatted over phone about his new album Distant Relatives with Damian Marley, his relationship with Africa, newcomers Drake and J. Cole and finally his tumultuous relationship with Kelis.
When asked how often he sees his son, Nas stated: “My son was born with ice grills, so when his mom feels in the mood she sends pictures. If not, its hell. It’s hell trying to figure that out, trying to get him—I’ll just leave it at that. It’s hell. A man shouldn’t go through that shit, but it’s another story I’ma tell at a different time.”
Wow. Nas opens up a fascinating conversation around mothers harboring feelings against former lovers and not allowing them to see their children as a result. We don’t know how true this is, but it’s certainly disappointing.
