In a recent interview, the Queens native revealed what has motivated him to keep making music.

“I love hip-hop. I’ve loved it since I was a kid. It’s still like a dream and it’s still fresh to me. I still feel the love for it. I love the art of it. More than anything, I love the artform. That’s crazy [for hip-hop to be so popular now]. I remember when it was considered not even music. To see what it is today, I knew it would be that. [Younger influences,] I loved Jackson 5. I loved Rick James. I loved James Brown. Lots of different cool cats. [laughs] … Even if I did like a suburban life album, somebody would like it because there’s a world there that’s not being catered to. I think that would work, that might work, I got the fire underneath me.” (“Late Show With Stephen Colbert”)

Nasir Jones also reflected on recently recording his NASIR album with Kanye West in Jackson, Wyoming.

“The people are great. One of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been to. It was the last place I thought I would record an album but we were there and nobody bothered us. It was a good time. Kanye is the kind of guy who needed to be away from everything when he was recording I guess. He said it to me and I was like, ‘I don’t know. I’ve never been there.’ But once I got there it was a great experience. It was Jackson – I saw the mountains.” (“Late Show With Stephen Colbert”)
