Nas on Fatherhood Challenges & Removing Kelis Tatt

Vibe recently sat down w/ Nas and rapped about his new album, son & his Kelis tatto. Peep a few snippets:

How’d it feel to be awaiting you first son while recording Distant Relatives?
Nas: It’s amazing. It just made everything feel like it was right on time, you know? To have a daughter is amazing too, but when you’re a man, to have a son is different. My daughter is my princess and now I have a prince, so it’s a beautiful thing to have a son and a daughter. Now I have a little man. It’s the coolest shit ever.

How old is Knight? Is he walking yet?
Nas: He’s like nine months. He’s crawling, pulling himself to stand up. He said the word ‘stick’ about a month ago. He’s been talking for about two months, saying little words here and there.

Any of them rhyme?
Nas: Nah. [Laughs]

What was his first word?
Nas: I don’t know, it sounded like he was trying to say ‘hello.’ He was picking up on things very young, like two to three months if not sooner. It just throws you that we’re born knowing what’s up.

How often are you able to see him?
Nas: My son was born with ice grills, so when his mom feels in the mood she sends pictures. If not, its hell. It’s hell trying to figure that out, trying to get him—I’ll just leave it at that. It’s hell. A man shouldn’t go through that shit, but it’s another story I’ma tell at a different time.

That’s what’s up. So I remember seeing a rumor online that said you were getting your Kelis tattoo removed from of your forearm. Any truth to that?
Nas: No words about any tattoos came from me this year or last year. So I don’t know what that is.

Do you feel a certain way about having the tattoo now after everything that’s been going on?
Nas: [Laughs] I don’t really think about tattoos, I just think about adding more, you know what I’m saying?

Do you think you’d ever get another tattoo like that?
Nas: No comment.

Looking forward, the new kids on the block are Drake and J. Cole. Drake made the comparison of himself as Jay-Z and J. Cole as Nas. Do you see the same parallel?
Nas: I think its great that those brothers aim for that, if that’s what they’re aiming for. They’re great. Jay Electronica’s a monster, [too]. They’re gonna open doors for more real niggas to get in the game. I love that shit. It’s too early for me to know, [though]. Those dudes are so creative, who knows what they’re about to do. I’m just gonna sit back and enjoy the show.
