Nas Defends Chief Keef

Ever since bursting onto the scene two years ago, Chief Keef and his actions have been under constant speculation and scrutiny from the national media. In a recent interview with REVOLT, Nas came to the Chicago rapper's defense, and gave insight on the perspective many young men, such as Keef, hold due to the environment they've grown up in. Drawing parallels from classic street stories like Scarface and Paid In Full, Nas explains the rational most individuals use when deciding whether or not to follow through on an action is much different than that of those raised with a street mentality. Read an excerpt from the interview below, and watch the full clip above.

"What people gotta understand is in the street you don’t exist until you do something to put your name in some form in one of the history book pages.”

    Rationale. That whole sentence is awful. I swear, I can't even enjoy this site anymore because the whole staff is essentially illiterate for being journalists. Maybe hire someone who went to journalism school? Or an editor?
