Nas Attacks Jackson Over Obama Slur

Rapper NAS has hit out at REVEREND JESSE JACKSON - after the U.S. civil rights activist was caught insulting presidential candidate BARACK OBAMA on TV.
Jackson was forced to apologise to Obama on Wednesday (09Jul08) after he was overheard accusing the politician of talking "down" to the black community and stating that he wanted to "cut his (Obama's) nuts off."
Nas is furious about Jackson's outburst - insisting the minister's time in the public eye is over.
He says, "I think Jesse Jackson, he's the biggest player hater. His time is up. All you old n****s, time is up. We heard your voice, we saw your marching, we heard your sermons. We don't wanna hear that s**t no more.
"It's a new day. It's a new voice. I'm here now. We don't need Jesse; I'm here. I got this. We got Barack, we got David Banners and Young Jeezys.
"We're the voice now. It's no more Jesse. Sorry. Goodbye. You ain't helping nobody in the 'hood. That's the bottom line. Goodbye, Jesse. Bye!"
