Nas And Jay-z To Team Up Again
Hip-hop star NAS has vowed his surprise collaboration with JAY-Z on stage in London last week (27SEP06) won't be his last - he wants them to travel to Africa together. The rapper thrilled the Royal Albert Hall audience when he performed three songs with his pal, following in the footsteps of fellow guest stars CHRIS MARTIN, GWYNETH PALTROW and BEYONCE KNOWLES. Now Nas reveals he's already discussed doing further tour dates in Africa with the 99 PROBLEMS hitmaker. He tells MTV, "There are some conversations me and Jay are having about doing some more tour dates. Nothing is confirmed, but there are some serious conversations about Africa and a few other countries. "I would like to do the Africa thing. And that would be about it, because it's the most important thing for Africans to see two African-Americans, their lost children, who's been the head of hip-hop culture. "A lot of our verses are misinterpreted in other countries, and they get the N-word wrong and they don't understand why we come up like this and why we say the things we say. So when they say it and when they do it, they just doing the gangsta mentality. They don't understand where it comes from, so we want to bring that connection from America to Africa and show them what we mean and show the brotherhood and show that me and this brother is about peace."
