The Illmatic artist has certainly earned his place in the Hip/Hop industry, never failing to uniquely express real life stories through his music. This time, Nas gives his listeners a view into the struggles of life in South Side Chicago, sharing his thoughts in a new documentary titled Chicago Love. Sharing the deepness of gun crime and violence in the streets, the documentary aired by Revolt TV provides an insight into the challenges of the city.
According to the Red Nation emcee, this would not be attainable without those emerging artists that play a position in communicating such hidden pain:
“Chicago is speaking where other people ain’t talking. They talking for themselves, they giving us what’s going on. If it wasn’t for the rap artists personally, the whole country would not know the state of emergency, that’s supposed to be going on in the hoods out there.”
He continues later, “Thank God we’ve got rappers from Chicago enlightening the whole world about what’s happening, because nobody else wants to talk about it.”
Nas speaks from a real place, his words authentic and hard to ignore. Undoubtedly, Nas will continue to rep for those communities that he mentioned that embrace the hustle.
