“I like that the Grammys nominated me,” said Nas. “I know the hugest platform for music is the Grammys, it matters. . . but something that huge is never gonna get it right. So it’s okay. It gives me the opportunity to wear a nice suit on a red carpet.”
It’s only because he’s no MAINSTREAM rapper. Nas is known to question a few things in his rhymes and once you put a few questionable things on the table, something such as the Grammys will overlook you. Maybe this year Nas!
