Nas: Hip-Hop Could Be 'More Loved' at Grammys
Nas is up for four Grammys on Sunday, including Best Rap Album for Life Is Good, which provided a topic of conversation when the 18-time nominee stopped by Chelsea Lately yesterday to chat with guest host Dave Grohl, who asked Nas how he feels hip-hop is represented at the annual awards show. "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."
Later, Grohl clears up his confusion about rap beefs. "I make fun of Coldplay, but I would never say that out loud," he says. "What do you feel like when you go to the Grammys and they're all there?"
"Once you say it, you gotta ride with it," says Nas. "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."
