In the upcoming November issue of XXL magazine, Nas graces the cover with an interview by none other than OFWGKTA’s leading man, Tyler, The Creator. The cover also dons stunning artwork by Mr. Cartoon.
“God’s Son is my favorite album by you,” Tyler said. “And my second is probably Street’s Disciple,” he continued.
“Get the fuck outta here,” Nas responded.
Awkward and quirky exchanges aside, the discussion quickly picked up with the 20-year-old Tyler asking Nas for advice.
“You, Em, Jay, Snoop, like, you guys all started when you was exactly my age,” Tyler said. “The fact that you guys are still here makes me just always think, like, F*ck, could I?”
“Oh, you definitely can,” Nas replied. “Someone like you is, you’re interesting, for a lot of reasons. So someone like you, you can’t wait to see what’s next.”
