97 Seconds: Nas [Video]

New York radio powerhouse Hot 97 checks in with the latest installment of their 97 Seconds interview series, this time getting Hip-Hop heavyweight Nas to open up on the origin of his love for music, his affinity for Queensbridge, his approach to making music, when he feels most inspired and more — all in 97 seconds.

He’s at his worst when…

“…I don’t care. When I just don’t wanna be bothered. When I’m just happy bein’ at home and not really in a mood to work, then I get a call from a great artist to do a feature and it ends up not happening because I can’t write. … When I get in my real, real at home vibe — don’t ask me to make records.”

Queensbridge Is…

“Home. It’s what raised me. Great neighborhood, great history, music, people, sports. … I still have my head up high representin’ it. No question.”

He wants the fans to…

“Experience Hip-Hop music from a dude who’s been in it for a long time and can still impact the masses.”
