Nas Swings On The Flippety-Flop

I thought I was going to get whiplash reading this Nas Q&A in The Onion A.V. Club, in which the bulk of Nathan Rabin’s queries get this sort of response: “AVC: Were you happy with how The Firm turned out? Nas: Yeah, no. I’m happy that it even happened, but there was another direction it could have gone in, if everybody had just got it done.” Yeah, no–welcome to the new Nas, as cagey with interviewers as ever. The albums, of course, are another thing altogether, as Rich Juzwiak’s close reading indicates. [A.V. Club]
