Overview

In a music genre where the lyrics seem to focus on drugs, violence, and hate, Nas stands out as a symbol of hope. His lyrics are deep, even spiritual.

But as readers of Nas will soon discover, there's more to Nasir Jones - Nas. The artist is a definition of contradiction. He's done his share of rhyming about the things that have caused hip-hop to earn the harsh criticism of some reviewers, public watchdog groups, and parents.
