Nas sat down with Dave Grohl, who has been guest hosting on Chelsea Lately and talked about the Grammys and the state of hip-hop. Nas is up for four Grammys for his work on Life Is Good and spoke on the representation of hip-hop in in the Grammy community. “It’s cool. I feel it could be a little bit more loved, though,” Nas replied. “Hip-hop is making a lot of noise, it should get some more spotlight.”
Nas went on to talk about beefing and explained, “I make fun of Coldplay, but I would never say that out loud.” Nas continued, “Once you say it, you gotta ride with it. You gotta be true. Hip-hop is really standoffish, really competitive. It’s really about who’s Number One all the time, and sometimes it gets out of hand.”
Sounds like Nas wants more love in the hip-hop community as well as for more love for hip-hop at the Grammys! We wanted to know who or what you #MuchLove. Have you tweeted @MuchMusic us your answer?
