Nas Responds To Bill O’Reilly

nas.jpgIn an interview with MTV News, Nas responds to Fox News political commentator, Bill O’Reilly, who blasted the Queens rapper for performing at “A Concert for Virginia Tech” yesterday (September 6). On his Fox News show, The O’Reilly Factor, the right-wing analyst called Virginia Tech’s decision to allow Nas to perform an “abomination” and “atrocity.” “Having a rapper who trades in violence perform at Virginia Tech insults the victims, the university and the entire commonwealth,” O’Reilly said. In an exclusive interview with MTV News, Nas finally responds to O’Reilly’s comments, stating, “He’s a racist. Everybody has a marketing plan; his marketing plan is racism.”

“He doesn’t understand the younger generation. He deals with the past,” Nas continued to say. “The people he represents are Republican, older, a generation that has nothing to do with the reality of what’s happening now with my generation. He’s not really on my radar. People like him are supposed to be taught and people like me are supposed to let niggas like him know. I don’t take him serious. His shit is all about getting ratings or whatever. I wouldn’t honor anything Bill O’Reilly has to say. It just shows you what bloodsuckers’ do. They abuse something like the Virginia Tech [tragedy] for show ratings. You can’t talk to a person like that.”

Despite all the controversy surrounding his performance, Nas, before taking the stage yesterday, assured MTV News he wouldn’t back down to the critics. “I’m still coming,” he said. “Unfortunately, man, a lot of places in America have to deal with unnecessary violence. Somebody like me who knows it firsthand and could relate…I had a best friend killed, plenty of other friends killed. I been through it. I seen it. My music reflects reality. I think that’s what makes it important that I come through and show love to these people. They deserve it.”

    Anyone who knows RAp/ HIP HOP knows that all the beef against the culture is all for ratings on T.V and in the Polls…Just like our “war on terrorism”! I knew it was all bogus when they called nas a gangsta rapper…he’s always been on some consious shit…just in a hard way….Hey i love it…and i think nas did a good thing for the students of VA who know and appreciate him and his swagga

    I have mixed feelings on a lot of Nas music, but Nas the person I have a world of respect for.

  • Ryan

    By mixed feelings I meant about how much I liked some of his stuff, not the message in it.

  • KRITIQ

  • Shorty74

    Bill O’reilly is a old,rich,white,prejudiced,HATA. Real Talk. Of all the rappers, he choose NAS? Luda made him look stupid. Nas will hit him in the head with some knowledge.

  • Rn

    Bill o’rielly cant relate to anyone from the streets…Nas performing for that school definatly aint a bad thing cause of those killings last year, move on….O’Rielly tries to blo every little thing up like for example tryin to ruin snoop cuz he got busted with pot

  • dare jam

    REAL BROTHERS SAY WHAT>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

  • JBird

    Bill’s stupid. Nas is like the Mos Def of gangster rap. Has Bill heard Nas’s song “Heaven” where he talks bout his mom? Nas puts out the most spiritual, inspirational, positive rap music out there. He’s close to the median where he’s on one side and Common’s on the other. Nas has calmed down a lot in his years and has matured. Know before you say Bill! Dumbass Republican!!

  • big dick cheney

    Yo man i just wanna say FUCK BILL O REILY. Tell him i said that. every time a rapper tryin to do somethin positive, he wanna go against him. He ruined Ludacris’s Pepsi Endorsement now he tryin to come against Nas? Yo fuck Bill O Reily wit a AIDS DICK!!!!!!!!!!!

  • Boi Boi

    Nas is “the dude”, period. I’ve been a fan of his since “halftime” and his lyrics represents everyone in the black community. Bill O’Reily need to get a life and leave blackfolkes alone.
