Nas says he loves where he is at musically and discusses his friendship with Kelis.
Nas recently revealed he was already laying the groundwork for a twelfth studio album. In a new interview with Angie Martinez of Hot 97, Nas explains how he's in a great place musically at the moment, he also discusses being named the "best lyricist of all time" by a CNN critic, as well as his relationship with ex-wife Kelis.
When asked if Nas thought he had put out his best work yet, the veteran rapper was unsure.Â "I dunno if I done my best. I think what's next to come is crazy. 'Cause the zone I'm in right nowÂ is just, so right. I'm happy to be at the place I am atÂ right now to make music. I dunno what just got into me, but it'sÂ like IÂ love it. And I'ma talk advantage of this zone I'm in when it comes to recording the next record."
He also talked on his now-friendship with ex-wife Kelis, whose wedding dress is featured on the cover of Nas' last LP, Life Is Good.Â "I put it out there in my music, so I'll talk about itÂ a little bit. We were not the bestÂ friends for a long time,Â it was crazy. And..we're just, we're friends now. We're not together, but we're friends now. Shoutout to her. I didn't wanna piss her off with the dress, but she handled it like a trooper."
He added,Â "We're friends and I'm glad to be at that place."
