"This Is Bigger Than Black And White" - Nas Delivers A Statement On American Unrest
Nas took to his Instagram last night as the latest artist to chime in on our country's unrest in the wake of the atrocities committed in Charleston, SC last week. After speaking with VIBE on the terrorism that our black communities have and continue to endure, the Queensbridge native offered an even more poignant statement, commenting on the falseness of our American dream in the face of such horrific acts perpetrated by those meant to protect us and those who live with the seeds of hatred and racism in their hearts. He even speaks to the double-fold damage done as purveyors of the country's only real export (entertainment) and the culture from which most other segments of society steal from (hip-hop) providing a truly touching, and even more so, tributary statement that acknowledges those who fought and died for the rights we now enjoy as blue-blooded Americans.
