Watch a video of Nas' recent interview on DJ Khaled's We the Best radio show.
DJ Khaled is putting his new platform -- his own We the Best radio show on Beats 1 -- to good use. On the inaugural episode, he premiered Future's latest album, EVOL, and on the second episode, which originally premiered on February 12, he sat down with Nas for an illuminating in-depth interview. It turns out that interview was filmed, and you can now watch Khaled's fireside chat with Nas, which came with a side of fine Cognac.
Khaled is known for his overblown ego, though he's always respectful of his peers and the greats that came before him, and his passion for the art form is apparent throughout his interview with Nas. Khaled has Nas take listeners through some of his most iconic records as well as the hip-hop albums that inspired him most. Nas names Public Enemy's It Takes a Nation of Millions to Hold Us Back as his favorite rap record, followed by Eric B. & Rakim's Paid in Full. He goes on to rattle off the titles of several classics, quickly realizing he can't possibly come up with a definitive top five.
The almost 40-minute conversation between the two industry moguls is the epitome of cloth talk. Listen to the full episode here, via Apple Music.
