Reason #1 Why TWNR

I know, I know. Celebrities talking about politics. Some of you hate it. Most of the time, I hate it. But if you've ever heard the track Poison (off Stillmatic, 2001) or Sly Fox (off Untitled, 2008), then you'd have to admit that Nas has earned the right to talk just a little bit of $hit.

It must be noted, however, that Fox's response was pretty f*&king excellent:

"Fox News believes in all protesters exercising their right to free speech, including Nas who has an album to promote."

I'm not sure where Nas is gonna take things musically in this next phase (the reputed collab album with the young Marley dude might be cool if it actually happens), but regardless he's an absolute inspiration and probably the greatest of all time.
