This is one VH1 Behind The Music that i was waiting for... Nas is one of my top 3 favorite rappers. As we all know, he's a very private mysterious person, it's interesting to see details about his life.
It's hard to believe Nas 1st album Illmatic was released 18 years ago in 1994, he still looks as young as he did back in the days, he must've found the fountain of youth.
Nas talks about his beef and reconciliation with Jay Z, stepping to Tupac, losing his mother to breast cancer, losing his best friend Ill Will to Gunfire, and his marriage and divorce to his wife Kelis.
There's footage of Nas & Kelis wedding, he speaks about how they fell in and out of love. they speak about her spending his money (rapidly), and how he was miserable in the relationship but decided to stay with her once he found out she was pregnant with his son.
Things between Nas & Kelis got so bad, that there was no communication at all, Nas found out that Kelis was in labor with his child from TMZ owner Harvey Levin (yikes).
One of many things i respect most about Nas is the fact that he always shows musical integrity and stays true to himself. He never over saturated the game with music or came with a corny gimmick for publicity, which is why he can still come out 20 years later and still get love.
