Nia Long finally addresses J. Cole's mention of her on "No Role Modelz." Her response will likely make Cole blush.
Actress Nia Long sat down with Larry King recently, and King, a noted hip-hop enthusiast, asked her about why she has been mentioned in so many hip-hop songs. She explained that hip-hop began blowing up around the same time as black actors like herself were starting to land major roles, and thus, rappers often saw her as a symbol of success. Her good looks probably didn't hurt either. King went on to mention that the most recent rapper to namedrop Nia Long in a song is J. Cole, who, on the 2014 Forest Hills Drive song "No Role Modelz," rapped:
"My only regret was too young for Lisa Bonet / My only regret was too young for Nia Long"
After King read Long the lyric, the 45-year-old actress responded, "He's really not too young. He just doesn't know it." Damn, Cole. After being reported as the highest-earning rapper of 2015 earlier today, and now some flirty action from the goddess Nia Long, he must be sitting pretty. Cole might not be able to respond back to Long, however, as he's happily married. He had tried to keep his marriage a secret, though "Creed" director Ryan Coogler accidentally dropped the bomb earlier this year during a live interview.
