I believe the direct quote was “Fuck the LA Times.” According to this other Times piece, Nas says my review “disrespected him.” Which is probably true, but then again, I never wrote a rap bragging about being in a Lex watching Kathy Lee and Regis. To say nothing about that unforgettable time when Halle Berry blew Nas a kiss at the Barbra Streisand concert. I assume that meant that Nasir is a big Funny Girl fan?

But hey, if my misanthropy somehow helped convince him to do an entire album produced by DJ Premier, my work here is done.

MP3: Nas-“Take It In Blood” (Which by all accounts remains a great song)
