Recently we've seen a few rappers, some political-minded and some not, speak out in the wake of the tragic Charleston shooting. Lupe Fiasco and Killer Mike shared their thoughts and broached the topic of racism. Kanye West did similarly during his freestyle at the Atlanta Birthday Bash event. Late last night Nas got a few things off his chest, and while not directly tied to the events in Charleston, it was likely influenced by it.

Taking to his Instagram page, Nas wrote about race and war in America, and how America has put its focus on wars abroad, neglecting those of their very own cities. He also broadens the discussion from simply Black versus White. Read his full post below.
