Nas Says JAY-Z Was Aware of R. Kelly’s Pedophilia in Unearthed 2002 Interview

Things are getting more and more interesting a week following the premiere of the Surviving R. Kelly docuseries. Many people who have collaborated with the disgraced singer in the past have joined the #MuteRKelly movement, meanwhile others assured that they been hopped on the wave decades ago when his pedophilia was made public knowledge.

JAY-Z was one of the people who opted to not participate in the documentary for whatever reason. According to an unearthed 2002 interview with Wendy Williams and Nas, Hov seen a “14-year-old girl come in the studio sit on R. Kelly’s lap” during the production of the Best of Both Worlds. Wendy agreed saying that anyone who has worked with him witnessed disgusting acts of sexual misconduct.

Dame Dash recently made headlines for claiming he was allegedly against his former artist collaborating with R. Kelly because of the nature of the relationship between his late fiance, Aaliyah, and Kells.

“I remember having the conversation with Aaliyah. And I was like ‘Yo, tell me what happened.’ And she was like ‘uh.’ She just couldn’t,” Dame said. “What you think I felt? I’m human, bro. I had to look the other way. All these years. Publicly, that man did a record with that n*gga that raped my girl, that he liked as well. But no one said nothing.”

Nas Is Officially Messing W/ Future’s New Must-See THE WIZRD Documentary

Nas

New York rapper Nas is grabbing some popcorn and clocking in a serious session with Future‘s new THE WIZRD documentary. The hip-hop mogul has co-signed Future Hendrixx’s new Mass Appeal-produced project.

Nasir Jones went to Instagram Friday (January 11) to salute Future on his new Apple Music exclusive film.

Last week, the hip-hop heavyweight promised to deliver a new album in the coming weeks.

The same day, Future announced he had his The WIZRD documentary and solo album both dropping in January.

“Crushed Up” is just the beginning though. It heralds the arrival of his seventh full-length album, dropping on January 18. This marks his first new solo album since the historic success of the 2017 albums Future and Hndrxx and the multiplatinum banger “Mask Off,” building on this incredible foundation and momentum to go even bigger in 2019. Adding another dimension to this next phase, Future shares the details for his Official Documentary, The WIZRD, debuting exclusively worldwide on Apple Music. The feature-length film follows the artist closely and peeks into corners of his world never-seen-before—until now. It opens up a window into his story and creativity unlike anything else.

To promote his new Apple Music exclusive, Future hosted multiple screenings from coast to coast.

To properly launch The WIZRD, he will personally host screenings with a Q&A and album listening in Los Angeles [January 8, iPic Theaters], and New York [January 10, iPic Theaters Southstreet Seaport]. It officially releases on Apple Music worldwide on January 11. Meanwhile, he opens up a limited-edition D2C store with a whole new merch collection January 11. The next era of Future starts now with “Crushed Up.”

Stro Is With Nas Now & He’s Ready For Mass Appeal (Video)

Booklyn’s Stro The MC signed to Mass Appeal last October. It was the culmination of several years of work, and now the New York spitter is releasing his first content of the new year. Off of his Mass Appeal-released Nice 2 Meet You, Again EP, the rapper formerly known as Astro drops the video for “Waters.”

The first half of the visual mostly centralizes on Stro’s lyrical ability, which seemingly extends beyond his years (no surprise why Nas is a fan). He’s driving his BMW SUV around the neighborhood at night and delivering some braggadocio bars which complement the vibe so well. The delivery features an inflection in his voice at the top of each bar, making it unique. In the second half, the beat switches up, and Stro hops out of his vehicle and continues his lyrical assault.


Stro Runs Through 7 Minutes Of Classic Beats In 1 Of The Year’s Best Freestyles (Video)

He closes in strong stride. “All of my bars prevail, you’re stuck in jail / Like nudes in the 90’s, so much p*ssy in the mail / Nowadays, my generation operatin’ through feminine ways / A dedicated MC before I heard it pays / But now, ain’t nothin’ free, dog / Need a couple G’s at least f*ckin’ with me, dog / I’m ill, actin’ like you don’t see, dog / But you a wolf, I know you’re pre, dog / I’m on that ass like toilet seat / I’m fly, plus I keep a lil shum shum like toiletries / And I deliver like they order me / This beat is wavy, I just came to test the waters, nothin’ more to see.” Stro has reached a new plateau, and approaching a decade after he appeared on Sha Stimuli’s My Soul To Keep album as a juvenile, he’s through working pro bono.

According to the Stro, Nice 2 Meet You, Again was a major transition for him both in his personal life and professionally. “[It] represents a new me and a new beginning,” he told Billboard‘s Carl Lamarre at the time of the project’s release. “There was a lot of ups and downs creating this project, but through the grace of God I’m able to say I got it done.”

Nas Throws His Hands Up In Solidarity With Those Unjustly Killed By Cops

Stro follows a lineage of lyrical MCs Nas and his team have signed over the years. Mass Appeal has worked with Run The Jewels, Gangrene, Dave East, DJ Shadow, as well as the late J Dilla and Pimp C. Stro joins Fashawn, Ezri, Cantrell, and 070 Phi on a label tour, beginning next month:

Today In Hip Hop History: Nas And Kelis Got Married 14 Years Ago

On this date in 2005, Queensbridge rap king Nasir Jones aka Nas and sultry Star Trak songstress Kelis Rogers tied the knot in holy Hip Hop matrimony in Atlanta, Georgia.

The two got hitched at the Morningside Baptist Church in a private ceremony for friends and family. The couple kept a low-profile for a few years, but rumors of infidelity and a sex tape featuring Kelis and a then unknown rapper named Infrared led to their ultimate break up and divorce in 2009.

Kelis later accused the rapper of verbal and physical abuse, even during her pregnancy with the couple’s first child, but those allegations were never substantiated.

Nas used Kelis’ green silk and chiffon wedding dress as a prop on his Life Is Good album cover post their divorce.
