Travis Scott Shares Pics Of Himself And Nas From New Issue Of Playboy

Hip Hop fans will be picking up the new issue of Playboy Magazine after seeing that Nad and Travis Scott will be featured in the Spring 2019 issue of Playboy.

The Houston rapper and Kylie Jenner’s baby posted pics of himself and the Queensbridge king from their photo shoot from the upcoming Sping issue of Playboy Magazine.

Is it a hint of a future project in the works? Maybe a show of solidarity between the generations. Regardless of whom or what, this will be one of the most illustrious issues of the prestigious publication since media went into the blogosphere.

Enough to be said, here’s the pics Scott posted on his IG timeline.

Nas Shares Rare, Priceless Notorious B.I.G. Moment: “……………”

Nas

New York rapper Nas knows sometimes there’s no words to describe greatness. The hip-hop veteran hit up social media to share an epic shot of himself and late rap icon Notorious B.I.G.

On Wednesday, Nasir Jones hit up Instagram with the must-like moment.

A couple weeks ago, UGK’s Bun B hopped on Instagram with a shout-out to Biggie Smalls.

Earlier this month, hip-hop mogul Irv Gotti shared an insane throwback shot of Biggie and late Bad Boy Records rapper Craig Mack.

On March 9, various hip-hop artists reflected on B.I.G’s death anniversary.

Nas + Travis Scott Talk State Of Hip-Hop, Police Brutality + Kid Cudi In New PLAYBOY Spring Issue

Playboy Spring 2019

New York rapper Nas and Travis Scott dig deep when they start talking. The hip-hop heavyweights trade thoughts on a slew of topics ranging from the evolving music industry and early successes to modern day politics in Playboy’s new #TheSpeechIssue Spring 2019 issue.

Within their must-read “Rapper’s Delight” piece, Scott discusses how much of a personal impact G.O.O.D. Music affiliate Kid Cudi has had on him.

“One of my idols is Kid Cudi and the way he tells his stories about how he felt as a kid growing up, like where he’s from. I related to that. I adopted my own form of storytelling—whether it’s through melodies or through raps or both. And as a producer too, just studying other fire producers—Pete Rock, Kanye, Pharrell—I was always into mixing different genres. I wasn’t stuck solely in one field. I like to bridge the gap between different styles of music. I always made my own beats and shit. I love James Blake, Toro y Moi and Björk. These types of people influenced me on another level. That’s what’s moved me. I mean, that’s the type of picture I want to paint.” (Playboy)

Nasir Jones took things a bit deep by discussing his approach to songwriting.

“Politics definitely affects the way I think, but the way I write is my day-to-day life. I did a song talking about daughters, because I have a daughter. “Daughters” was nominated for a Grammy. I feel it—that’s why I wrote it—but I had no idea it would be acknowledged like that when it came out. So I write about day-to-day stuff, and I don’t plan to write anything political, because then it’s forced. It ain’t a natural expression.” (Playboy)

Nasty Nas made sure to hit up Instagram to plug the must-own issue.

Nas Sends New Zealand Prayers + Links W/ His Twin Sisters

Nas

New York rapper Nas is sending only positive thoughts and prayers to New Zealand following a headline-generating mass terrorist attack. Nasir Jones relied on the power of social media to speak out on the horrific tragedy.

On Saturday, Nas hit up Instagram to send prayers out.

Prayers for New Zealand 🇳🇿 🙏🏾 🤲🏾

A post shared by Nasir Jones (@nas) on

Yesterday, Australian rapper Iggy Azalea went to Twitter to express her feelings.

According to reports, the shocking Friday attack resulted in nearly 100 victims.

At least 49 people were killed and 20 seriously injured in mass shootings at two mosques in the New Zealand city of Christchurch Friday, in a carefully planned and unprecedented attack that has shocked the usually peaceful nation. New Zealand’s Prime Minister, Jacinda Ardern, called the incident a terrorist attack in a Friday press conference, saying the suspects held “extremist views” that have no place in New Zealand or the world. The attacks targeted two mosques in central Christchurch at lunchtime local time Friday. (CNN)

At least one person went into custody and claimed more attacks were planned.

A law enforcement official told CBS News on Friday morning that the prime shooting suspect in custody, the Australian man who has been charged with murder, claimed other individuals were planning additional attacks on mosques in New Zealand. There was no further information available on his claim. New Zealand police have said that three other individuals were initially taken into custody. One of them was quickly released and police were still trying to determine what role, if any, the other two people had in the attack. (CBS News)

Very epic! #Nas #JAYZ #Diddy #SOHH Swipe 👉🏽

A post shared by SOHH (@sohhdotcom) on

In November, Nas released a highly-anticipated self-titled short film.

Last July, Nas low-key revealed he has a new album on deck.

“It’s another album that I already had been working on before [the one with] Kanye,” he told Martinez. “Since I did this, I gotta do something that goes into another direction a little bit. I’m finishing up the next one.” Nas confirms he’s done work with Swizz Beatz and RZA (“I’m a big Wu-Tang fan”). He also acknowledged the six-year gap between 2012’s Life Is Good and this summer’s Nasir, promising the wait for his next album won’t be as long. “All the time that went by, it’s dope because now I get to do it from another level,” he said. “I get to make music from an older point of view.” (Billboard)

JAY-Z & Nas’ De La Soul Support Helps Spark Tommy Boy Negotiations, Group Reveals

JAY-Z

The music industry’s support for De La Soul has resulted in a much-needed negotiation meeting to go down. The hip-hop group has updated fans on its publicized streaming rift with Tommy Boy Records.

On Monday, De La released a statement crediting music pioneers like JAY-Z and Nas for helping make a business gathering go down.

Throughout the past few days, the group has kept fans updated on the status of its catalog finally going digital.

According to the label, Tommy Boy has postponed De La Soul’s catalog from entering the streaming world.

“Because Tommy Boy has not had the opportunity to sit down together with De La Soul and finalize our negotiations — something we’ve wanted to do for months — we have decided to postpone the digital release of their catalog scheduled for tomorrow,” the statement reads. “We know fans are eager to hear these amazing recordings and we are hopeful for a quick resolution.” (Variety)

Last week, various hip-hop artists have come to De La’s defense amid the group’s claim of not receiving fair profits off the upcoming digital streams.

I hate that it has come to this. Seriously. But there is no “if I have to choose a side?” #DeLaSoul means everything to me. @WeAreDeLaSoul gave me and millions of music lovers LIFE. I been hoping and wishing and praying for their back catalogue to be made available on digital media FOREVER—-but not like this @tommyboyrecords. This narrative has been going on since the blues, since jazz, since rock n roll, since disco, since soul——-I’m proud of De La for using their voice. Let’s fix this. For the greater good. Let’s be respectful and fair. 90% to the label & 10% to the artist is not fair. Normal protocol is just to 🤷🏾‍♂️ accept that’s how it is nowadays. We can change that. Change starts now. As much as it pains me to not cop 10 of those issues each and share all their timeless work of genius to a generation that has no clue—-join me in standing w De La Soul in this #TommyBOYCOTT. Do y’all understand I been waiting DECADES to finally listen to their awe inspiring work in the car, on lunch break, in the gym, just chillin? I can’t do that to them. Until you do right by the soul? There is no convo.
