Nas Covers XXL’s November Issue

Tyler, The Creator is getting his stripes outside of music—now that XXL has enlisted him to be their latest reporter.

The Odd Future head is featured in the latest issue of the Hip-Hop mag interviewing Nas who covers their November issue.

In it Young Escobar issues advice to the 20-year-old on longevity in the rap game.

“You, Em, Jay, Snoop, like, you guys all started when you was exactly my age,” Tyler said. “The fact that you guys are still here makes me just always think, like, Fawk, could I?”

“Oh, you definitely can,” Nas replied. “Someone like you is, you’re interesting, for a lot of reasons. So someone like you, you can’t wait to see what’s next.”

The young Creator also made sure to ask Nas if he was truly happy to which Nas responded,

“Dawg, I was naming my album Life Is Good because of how happy I am about how happy things have turned out. Sometimes I may wake up and wish my kids were living with me. That’s the only thing, you know what I mean? Our loved ones that are not around no more, like my mom. That’s the only thing. But other than that, everything is great, even when I’m alone. Even when there’s no one around.”

XXL’s November issue also features Mary J Blige who was asked questions by 20 different MCs including Rick Ross, Young Jeezy, Ludacris, Wiz Khalifa and DMX.
