Nas Tells Rappers To Stop Clout Chasing

Nas is still doing press for his latest album King’s Disease, which dropped in August.

The rap legend recently spoke with NME about several topics, including clout chasing, which he finds corny. But he fully understands the braggadocio side of Hip Hop. 

"Today’s game doesn’t faze me; it’s different," Nas explained. "I’m in a different place. I have a different job when it comes to making music. It’s strange because I’m the same me, but I’m older. So there’s different ways of going about things and different things that I care about. But the clout thing stands out because it’s show business."

He continued. “It’s Muhammad Ali when he’s mouthing off, which changed boxing and made him more entertaining. It’s 2Pac when he was going wild on people, which creates entertainment. So I get that part of it, but I don’t care for it when it’s only that. When it’s only clout. When there’s no real purpose behind the record other than trying to get streams. I wish artists would try not to do so much clout [chasing] because the people notice it and it’s corny. But at the same time, who am I to say anything? Everybody carry on.”

Any thoughts on what Nas said?
