Nas' highly anticipated album "Life Is Good" officially released on Tuesday and the rap veteran has been steadily speaking on many aspects of his 10th studio album. In one of his recent interviews, he once again touched on the significance of Kelis' wedding dress on the album cover and explained airing out his personal issues on the album.
"It just came naturally. It really bothered me because we are in the Internet age. There was no way to avoid everything that was out there. To me that's what shaped this album. I couldn't escape all the stuff about my marriage or questions about [my finances]. So my answer was putting Kelis' green wedding dress on the album cover. The music and the reality of my life go hand-in-hand. Life is poetry and that's what this new album is. I haven't had a record out in a long time. This is the way I got it all off of my chest."
The Queensbridge native then expressed his willingness to work with fellow rap veterans Jay-Z and Eminem on a possible remix to his track "Daughters". He explains why it didn't work out.
"One of the only other rappers I thought about was AZ. And I wanted Eminem for a remix for "Daughters," but he had already expressed that he's spoken so much about his daughter throughout his career that he had done that subject too much. And me and Jay-Z talked about doing some things, but our schedules were so crazy."
